Several children are missing in South Australia after two others were removed from school and placed in immigration detention centres.
Quotes from Refugee Action Coalition spokesman Ian Rintoul:
“They’re at the whim of the department.”
“The fact they were snatched out of school is an indication of how (the Department) operates with no concern for the kids involved.
“It’s a general phenomenon at the moment. The department is cancelling visas, bringing people in, sending people back. There is general fear in the community.”
Parents: you may now start terrorising your children into eating their steamed vegetables with the prospect of indefinite detention in a shipping container on a small, hot island where the locals want to kill you and the prison guards can’t stop them.
