Call for investigating dodgy migration agents, AAT

A notable number of government MPs are pushing for a 10-member migration committee to investigate the migration appeals process over concerns about the number of times the tribunal overturns government decisions to deport criminals who are in Australian on visas.

The MPs said they were concerned about dodgy migration agents, who clogged up the system with a string of appeals often giving false hope to clients. The MPs also want the Administrative Appeals Tribunal to be investigated for its increasing overrule of the decisions by Immigration Minister Peter Dutton.

The Police Federation of Australia is also not happy with certain “elements of the judiciary” for “flouting laws” that allows visas of criminals to be cancelled.
