Dear Mr Morrison (an open letter to the Minister for Immigration and Border Protection)

So beautifully, eloquently and intelligently written – I hope everyone in Australia will read this, and demand that Scott Morrison answer the questions raised. And stop saying asylum seekers are illegal!

Article 31 of the UN Refugee Convention says that, while it is usually illegal to enter a country without a valid visa, it is NOT to be considered as illegal, if it is for the purpose of seeking asylum. Yet, you continue to use the words “illegal maritime arrivals” and “entering illegally” in reference to people who are seeking asylum.
