Christmas Island: Australia 'To Re-Open' Controversial Detention Centre

Christmas Island: Australia 'to re-open' controversial detention centre

Australian PM Scott Morrison says he will re-open a controversial detention centre on Christmas Island, after a historic defeat in parliament.

On Tuesday, non-government MPs secured enough votes to pass a bill making it easier for sick refugees held offshore to be treated in the country.

Mr Morrison said the law would weaken the nation's tough border policies and embolden human traffickers.

Opponents accused him of spreading fear before an impending election.

Since 2013, Australia has sent asylum seekers arriving by boat to detention centres on Manus Island (Papua New Guinea) and Nauru.

"Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?
Matthew 7: 15-16 Complete Jewish Bible

Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

Australia reopens Christmas Island migrant centre in anticipation of new arrivals

The country's PM takes action after criticising a "foolish" new law that gives sick migrants easier access to mainland hospitals.

Australia is to reopen a detention camp on Christmas Island after its parliament passed a new law which critics claim will encourage more asylum seekers to arrive by boat.

The legislation - described by prime minister Scott Morrison as "foolish" - gives sick migrants easier access to mainland hospitals.

Mr Morrison's conservative government claims the bill, which was passed by 75 to 74 in the house of representatives on Tuesday, will undermine Australia's tough refugee policy.

Asylum seekers who attempt to reach Australia by boat are currently banished to camps on Pacific islands.
