“More than 10,000 asylum-seekers, who arrived in Australia under the open-border policies of the Rudd and Gillard governments and are still being processed almost a ¬decade later, would be given permanent protection and a pathway to ¬citizenship under a Shorten ¬government. The pledge to end Labor’s boat arrivals hangover by offering the remaining asylum-seekers permanent residency through the abolition of the government’s temporary protection visa system came as The Australianestablished that the cost of managing the ongoing caseload of applicants had reached more than $2 billion.

It would also end the last remnants of Labor’s 2008 policy, which has been widely recognised — even within party circles — as a policy and humanitarian disaster.”
