"In early April, Prime Minister Scott Morrison sent a clear message to
temporary visa holders that if they were no longer financially solvent
to ride out the pandemic, they were not welcome in Australia.
As much as it’s lovely to have visitors to Australia in good times, at
times like this, if you are a visitor in this country, it is time […] to
make your way home.
As our new research published today shows, this statement fuelled
feelings of abandonment and worthlessness among temporary visa holders
who have been left out of the government’s economic support schemes
during the COVID-19 crisis."
This is a national disgrace.
