Irish deported from Australia - The Irish Times - Wed, Jan 13, 2010

At least a dozen Irish nationals have been deported from Australia in the past two weeks in a crackdown on immigration fraud.

It is understood that most or all of them had acquired second year working holiday visas (WHV) for Australia by using fake details.

Those deported were detained in Sydney and Brisbane airports on returning from trips home to Ireland over Christmas.

Some were held overnight in the Villawood detention centre in western Sydney before being put on a plane the next day. Others were immediately put on the next available flight without being detained overnight.

In November, an Irish man was fined Aus$1,400 (€890) and expelled from Australia after being convicted of immigration fraud. The crackdown since Christmas is the result of an investigation into other Irish backpackers suspected of similar frauds.

A spokesman for Australia’s Minister for Immigration, Chris Evans, said such fraud is “a serious offence that will not be tolerated”.

“Temporary visa holders who acquire a visa fraudulently are liable for cancellation of their visa and removal from Australia and can also face criminal charges with jail terms of up to 10 years and/or a fine of up to $110,000,” he said.


Meanwhile Ireland does nothing about its immigration fraud fiasco. At least Australia seems to have the right idea: hefty fines, imprisonment.

They should have consulted with Pamela in Sligo

The Irish fools were actually supporting themselves with jobs, they should have claimed asylum, spoke of the corrupt regime in their homeland and sponged off the Australian taxpayer

Its much harder to get into Australia now and I hadn't thought of the asylum angle.

To say you are escaping from a corrupt and incompetent govt is the truth and you wouldn't need to forge papers like Pamela whatsername...just give them some transcripts from the various tribunals and some back issues of national papers with TDs expenses details...and show them your payslip with a 4% health levy robbery when you cant get into hospital unless you pay privately...

The Australian government is enforcing Australian law. I suppose this merits a thread because in Ireland this would be a very novel idea.

Fair play to them. The Australians and the Irish are equally entitled to control their respective borders.

Looking at this and comparing it to our own stance an immigrtation is missing one important point.

The safety valve of immigration to the US and Australia whenever the economy in this country weakened is now reduced greatly. This is a scenario that has never been dealt with in this country before as there was always countries that Irish and particularly young Irish could emigrate to and find work.

Don't forget Britain!

The Irish have never "dealt" with anything.

Ever!

It has to be done for them. It is being done.

So transportation is not an option to reduce our gaol population.:rolleyes:
The Aussies are sending our petty criminals home :shock:

Yeah, good on them.

Meanwhile, we have taken a lot of other countries' chancers, all in the name of some sort of multicultural nirvana!
