Let the Immigration Minister do his job

WE HAVE an Immigration Minister who is trying to do his job, which includes deporting undesirables and illegal immigrants.

So can someone tell me how the Administrative Appeals Tribunal can overturn the minister's decision?

This decision was deporting immigrants who have numerous criminal charges, have been deported a number of times but still turn up on our doorstep.

The usual response from these people is that if they go back to their country they will be executed, and yet these same people continue to return to their country of birth for holidays and weddings.

Kiwis get deported for minor infringements and yet Muslims can rort the system with the help of AAT.

I think it is time these administrations should have their views checked because it seems to me these Islam apologists should be held accountable and the Immigration Minister should be in complete control of any decisions where undesirables and illegal migrants are concerned.

Australia is still a great place to live, but how long will it take the Greenies, apologists, and the looney left to completely ruin what our diggers gave their lives for?
