Australia calls for extradition of foreign criminals
Follow-up / Sky Press:
The head of the Umma Party and Australian Senator Pauline Hanson have called for the expulsion of foreigners who commit crimes in the country, stressing that migrants who engage in anti-social behavior should not be granted Australian citizenship and deported.
"The families of foreigners who commit crimes from the country should be expelled along with the offender," Hanson said in remarks reported by Australian media. "Under certain circumstances, the families of those who have committed serious crimes must face the threat of deportation."
"Immigrants who choose to engage in anti-social criminal behavior must not be granted Australian citizenship and must face tougher sanctions such as deportation," she said.
Australian Senator Queensland issued a statement calling on parents to take more responsibility for their children's actions and to face consequences if they acted badly.
Under Australia's current laws, foreigners who are sentenced to one year or more are deported, but their families are allowed to remain in the country. Australian authorities confirm their continued strict policy with asylum seekers and those who come from smuggling and detain them on remote islands.
