Dear Prime Minister,
I strongly object to the Revalidation Bill, especially the power it gives to the Immigration Minister to arbitrarily and without check revoke anyone's visa or residency status. In particular
Thus the minister can discriminate against people by class, ethnic origin, nationality, religion, date of arrival, age, gender, etc. No evidence of wrong-doing would be required. Asylum seekers and refugees who are already in Australia are the most vulnerable, but these extreme powers could be applied to any non-citizen. Coupled with DIBP's blocking of many migrants from taking their final step to becoming citizens (despite them having been awarded citizen status) Australia is becoming more and more authoritarian, where extreme power is wielded unchecked and rules are changed arbitrarily.
