Senator Hanson slams Government over released detainees mismanagement
Luke is joined by Pauline Hanson, Senator for Queensland / Leader of Pauline Hanson’s One Nation, who has plenty to say about the government’s handling of the now released immigration detainees.
Senator Hanson was part of a cross bench meeting with the hapless Immigration Minister Andrew Giles yesterday and thinks the minister, and in fact the government, are out of their depth on this issue.
Of course the story went next level yesterday when a known sex offender, who was labelled a “danger to the community” by the judge who sentenced him, has allegedly indecently assaulted a woman in a South Australian hotel, just weeks after being released from immigration detention by the High Court’s contentious landmark “NZYQ” decision.
With two former detainees arrested over the weekend, the Coalition seized on the incidents as a “catastrophic failure,” accused Labor of failing to keep the community safe and escalated its calls for Anthony Albanese to sack his Home Affairs Minister, Clare O’Neil, and Immigration Minister, Andrew Giles.
