Not sure what has happened in the past week with migration? Don’t worry! We have the latest migration news and stories from the past seven days available here at your convenience. No need to do any further research, we have done it all for you.

In this week’s edition, we first have an article by ABC. Recently in the news, there has been a lot of stories relating to the deportation or refusal of applicants with health issues. A Victorian family had their initial application for permanent residency denied, as their son had cystic fibrosis. Their son was considered to be a ‘burden’ on the Australian healthcare system. However, recently the family had their permanent residency granted.

Then there is the story by SBS about the struggles of a man who is living in Australia illegally. He originally came to Australia on a valid visa. However, he had overstayed his visa and now an ‘unlawful citizen’. Unfortunately, he has spent a few nights on the river bank.

These are just a few stories we have found for you. We have many more stories for you to read below.
