NO CHILD’S PLAY: CHILDREN IN IMMIGRATION DETENTION
little description about this topic:
The treatment of asylum seekers is a highly contentious issue both in Australia, and throughout the world. It has been Australian policy since 1992 that all non-citizens, including children, who seek entrance to Australia without a legal visa are detained. Many of those detained in mandatory detention centres are fleeing from persecution in their home countries. They are often refugees from extremely poor and dangerous circumstances, seeking safety and new lives. Most asylum seekers travel to Australia by boat, which is an extremely hazardous, and potentially fatal, voyage. Once safely arrived in Australia, they are subsequently detained in detention until their claims can be legally processed. However, there is no limit placed on the maximum time an adult, or child, can be held in detention. Moreover, detainees will only be released if they are either granted an Australian visa, or removed from Australia.
One especially vulnerable group of asylum seekers is children. Australia’s practice of detaining children in immigration detention centres brings with it special ethical concerns, especially as Australia is the only country in the world to use mandatory and indefinite detention as the first resort for child asylum seekers.
