Relatives of immigrants who commit serious crimes on Australian soil would face deportation along with their offending family members in a scheme to be proposed by One Nation leader Pauline Hanson.
The controversial policy would aim to ‘stabilise the country’s population’ while working to weed out criminal migrants, Daily Telegraph reports.
In a move to achieve ‘zero net immigration‘, migrants who ‘choose to engage in anti-social, criminal behaviours’ would not be allowed citizenship.
Senator Hanson said ‘under certain circumstances’ family members of extreme offending immigrants would also face deportation.
‘It is high time parents start taking more responsibility for the actions of their children,’ she said.
‘More must be done to create strict laws and regulations that protect our national security and reduce the risk of terrorism and radicalisation.’
Also on her hit list heading into federal parliament for 2018 was a ‘use it or lose it’ policy for gas companies and a reform of the family law system.
‘It’s a fact that the Federal Government has granted 31 retention licences for offshore areas which contain more gas than we’d know what to do with,’ Senator Hanson said.
‘None of these licences have gone to production phase, with some multinational companies having sat on these reserves for the past 30 years.’
She said domestic violence, child support, parental equality and alack of judges in the family court were also among her top priorities.
A focus on water security also ranked high on her list, along with protecting valuable agricultural land from foreign corporations.
‘This is an issue that is of particular interest to Queensland. I want to see a focus on ensuring water security for prime agriculture land by investing more in infrastructure like dams.
‘It’s disgraceful that we have a system now that incentivises multinational corporations to trade water for profit, with no regard for what is best for the long-term future of Australia’s regional farming communities.’
‘More must be done to create strict laws and regulations that protect our national security and reduce the risk of terrorism and radicalisation,’ she said
