Mike Baird Announces Travel Concessions For Asylum Seekers

6 26.06.2015 Инфо

The Premier of New South Wales in Australia has released a video explaining why his government will give travel concessions to asylum seekers. The move is in clear contrast to the Coalition's stance towards asylum seekers at federal level. As reported in The Guardian newspaper, two days after the New South Wales budget, Baird said, 'I am of the view that Australia is the lucky country and we have a responsibility to help those who have nowhere else to turn." He explained, "They arrive here with nothing, looking to get on their feet, escaping conditions and circumstances none of us can imagine.'
