Immigration minister Scott Morrison try to push the Senate for allowing the temporary protection visas for asylum seekers


There is a debate between the government and the Senate on allowing the temporary protection visas. Government try to stop or prevent more boats to come to Australia by not providing the premium and services asylum seekers received under previous government. For example giving asylum seekers bridging visas with no work rights.

Temporary protection visas are another policy that government want to use to give asylum seekers work permission without giving them permanent residence.  Australian Human Rights Commission try to stop that and push government to provide permanent protection visa for asylum seekers specially kids in detention centers.


The claims for more 30,000 asylum seekers including children will not be processed until a controversial temporary visa is allowed through the Senate, Immigration Minister Scott Morrison has told an inquiry.

During a sometimes fiery hearing of the Australian Human Rights Commission inquiry into children in detention, Mr Morrison said the asylum seekers would not have their asylum claims processed until he could offer a “visa product” that only offered temporary residency. The group includes more than 712 children and who arrived to Australia after July 19 last year.

Mr Morrison acknowledged the extended time children were spending in detention, but blamed the Labor Party and the Greens for not allowing the temporary protection visas (TVPs) into the Senate.
