BUREAUCRATS LET FAKE REFUGEES STAY
What kind of bureaucrats let liars stay?
SIX Iranian boat people were caught holidaying in their homeland after lying on their visa applications about fearing for their lives if they had to return there.
But Administrative Appeals Tribunal bureaucrats have foiled Immigration Minister Peter Dutton’s attempts to deport the Iranians, allowing them to stay here regardless. Documents seen by the Herald Sun reveal in each case, the Iranians, who paid people smugglers to get to Australia, were given protection visas after claiming their lives would be in danger if they returned to Iran.
The visas were cancelled by Mr Dutton, or his delegate, after the Immigration Department discovered they voluntarily returned to Iran and later came back to Australia.
ONE made three return trips to Iran after getting his Australian visa, including one to get married under Islamic law, an event conducted by the Iranian authorities he was supposedly terrified of; …
A COUPLE who arrived by boat claimed to have no identification documents and they would be killed if they returned to Iran, but later voluntarily travelled to Iran and back to Australia on valid Iranian passports; and
TWO Iranian family members claimed to be stateless with no identity documents — a lie discovered when another family member applied to join them in Australia and provided documents to show all were Iranian citizens who were in no danger of being persecuted in Iran…
The revelations will put further pressure on the AAT, already under fire for overturning thousands of visa decisions made by Mr Dutton or his delegate in the past year.
Wonder how many of those delegates were appointed by Labor.
Have a look at the comments. The people get it. These treacherous leftoids are a cancer on our society. They need to be removed at immediately.

Six Iranian refugees who were caught travelling back to the country where they claimed their lives were in danger have reportedly been allowed to stay in Australia.
The group have been accused of lying on their visa applications after voluntarily returning to Iran on holiday despite having obtained protection visas based on fears for their lives, News Corp reports.
Immigration Minister Peter Dutton is considering what he will do in response to the reports, 9NEWS understands.
All six refugees’ protection visas were reportedly cancelled after it was discovered they were travelling between Iran and Australia.
They were set to be deported, but after successfully appealing to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal they were allowed to stay in Australia.
One man reportedly made three trips to Iran despite earlier claiming he could face execution if he returned.
A couple also reportedly travelled to and from Iran using their Iranian passports after claiming persecution.
Mr Dutton has the power to set aside decisions made by the tribunal, and is understood to be considering the reports on a case-by-case basis.
