Australian security agencies may not have approved tighter citizenship laws

Immigration officials have been unable to confirm whether they gained security agency backing for tighter citizenship laws, before Peter Dutton announced the controversial overhaul in April 2017.

The officials told a Senate inquiry in Brisbane they could not confirm whether the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO) or the Australian Federal Police raised a need for the proposed changes, or were consulted specifically about them before they were unveiled.

The Labor senator Murray Watt said this testimony was “evidence that shows very clearly there is no national security case for a tightening of the citizenship laws”.

Australia’s going to be an Asian country’: Gerry Harvey says immigration can’t be stopped

Retailer Gerry Harvey has predicted Australia will become an “Asian country” with a population of 100 million in the next century. He said “there is not a chance in hell” immigration can be dialled back.

Earlier this month, outspoken entrepreneur Dick Smith launched a $1 million anti-immigration ad , calling for Australia’s net migration intake to be scaled back from its current level 210,000 people a year to its historical average of 70,000. Mr Smith joined a growing number of commentators , economists and politicians blaming “unsustainable” record high immigration for declining living standards and skyrocketing house prices, with retailers such as Harvey Norman accused of pushing a “pro-growth” agenda.

Mr Harvey, speaking to news.com.au as the furniture and electrical goods retailer announced a record full-year profit, said he had “always held the same view” that Australia was a “great big place and no one lives here”. “If I was God and I looked down on the Earth, I would see 1.3 billion Indians, 1.4 billion Chinese, 240 million Indonesians, these great big continents, America, Europe, and one funny little country, Australia,” he said. “It’s not possible you can maintain a population of 25 to 30 million people. In 100 years from now Australia will have a population of 50 to 100 million people. That’s going to happen regardless of what Dick Smith thinks, I think or you think, it is inevitable.

Australian border force and DIBP face setback in legal battle with CPSU

Australian Border Force and the DIBP have had a serious setback in their legal battle with their main workplace union, with the Fair Work Commission throwing out much of the DIBP's case.

The DIBP accuses its adversary of a legal ambush that will hurt its workforce by dragging out the proceedings even longer, with hearings set for August and September now pushed back to November and December 2017.

The DIBP's 13,500 public servants are expected to form the backbone of the Coalition's new Home Affairs department but have not had a payrise since 2013. The majority of DIBP workers have repeatedly rejected offers made under the hardline bargaining policies, ushered in by the Abbott government, resulting in three years of bitter industrial stalemate. 

Since early 2016, the two sides have been locked in Fair Work Commission arbitration, aimed at ending the deadlock.
