It’s inevitable that some asylum seekers will be recklessly returned to situations of harm if the deadline is enforced against them

On Sunday, the deadline fell for 30,500 asylum seekers living in Australia to lodge their applications for asylum. Immigration minister Peter Dutton announced the deadline in May this year, alongside the condition that anyone who didn’t meet the deadline would be automatically considered to have abandoned their claim to asylum and subject to deportation. The government’s FAQ for people affected by the deadline put it bluntly: “If you do not lodge, you are not an asylum seeker and must return home.”
