Australia’s Migration System and COVID-19

Australia: The Green Party have highlighted how refugees and asylum seekers have been amoung the hardest hit by Covid-19 and the government’s deliberate neglect has only added to their trauma and pain. The government has excluded refugees and temporary visa holders from its JobKeeper and JobSeeker programs, leaving many to fend for themselves or rely on charity. Other  people who were imprisoned in brutal conditions in PNG and Nauru for over six years have also remained locked up in hotels in Brisbane and Melbourne, cut off from any support.
