Administrative Appeals Tribunal

In the aftermath of the revelations that roughly 70 asylum seekers who had been brought to Australia for medical treatment (and stayed thanks to a court injunction) would have their income support cut off and would have three weeks to find alternative accommodation or face deportation, Immigration Minister Peter Dutton talked about the significant costs these asylum seekers imposed upon the taxpayer.

"The medical care has been provided and through tricky legal moves they are now prevented from being returned to their country of origin, Manus or Nauru," Dutton told the Daily Telegraph.
