Cory Bernardi says children of ISIS terrorist should never return to Australia
Senator Cory Bernardi says the children of Australia’s most notorious terrorist should never be allowed to return home.
The three orphaned children of ISIS fighter Khaled Sharrouf are begging to be let back in the country.
Hoda Sharrouf, 16, says she’s worried about the health of her pregnant 17-year-old sister, and wants her eight-year-old brother to live a normal life.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison says he’s willing to let them come home but won’t put any Australian lives at risk to do so.
But Cory Bernardi says he’s made the wrong call.
“Why we would want them back in this country beggars belief.
“Where were these young people demanding to come back to Australia when their father was alive and Islamic State was in charge?
“These people are only fleeing because Islamic State has failed.”

The Prime Minister rang Ben Fordham to clarify his position on the matter.
Mr Morrison says every case involving children will have to be looked at individually.
“These are kids, and what their parents have done is criminal.
“But when we’re talking about innocent, unaccompanied children, that’s something we’ll have to deal with on a case-by-case basis.”
