Australia asylum: Arrivals by boat face lifetime visa ban
Some Americans want to build a wall to keep immigrants out, but Australia has already topped us by building an Ocean around their entire country. Even with this monumental barrier, Australia still has a problem with immigrants, and has for decades taking aggressive measures against them. Australia has recently unveiled a new plan to ban anyone found attempting to make landfall by boat from ever returning to Australia. Even tourist and business visas would be denied to these individuals. Australia has been greatly criticized for some of its immigration policies, especially the treatment of individuals who are caught. We will have to see how this new plan is received by Australians and the wider world.
