Dutton's citizenship changes a test for Labor

Media Release
Nick McKim 12 Jun 2017

Peter Dutton's proposed citizenship changes are xenophobic, unfair and must be rejected by Labor, Greens Immigration spokesperson Nick McKim says.

"Time and again we have seen Peter Dutton grabbing more power for himself, as he tries to make himself judge, jury and jailor," Senator McKim said.

"Peter Dutton has repeatedly shown he cannot follow the current laws - now he wants to get rid of the right of the courts to correct his unlawful decision."

"This a draconian measure aimed at undermining multicultural Australia."

"Bill Shorten's Labor MPs have a clear choice - support multiculturalism and the rule of law, or collapse in the face of xenophobic politics."
