UnitingJustice Australia has written to the Senate Legal and Constitutional Affairs Committee about the proposed legislation for lifetime bans on visas for refugees who have arrived by boat since 19 July 2013. This ban serves no purpose and will separate families forever. It is in breach of Article 31 of the refugee Convention. It should not be passed.
