Dear Hon Anthony Albanese, leader of Labor Federal opposition
In this letter we wish to seek your support in contacting the Labor PM of NZ, Hon Jacinda Ardern and convince her to help Australian families settle in NZ to keep their family unit intact.
On 10 September 2019, we sent the attached letter to Hon Ardern asking her to help end the suffering of few Australian families. The husbands are refugees and asylum seekers arrived to Australia by boats. After their arrival, they married Australian citizens and some of them had children. The current legislation does not allow them to apply for partner visa. They continue living in limbo either on TPV or Bridging Visa E.
The current legislation in NZ allows Australian partners to move to NZ and apply for their husbands to join them in NZ.
In the 10 of September letter, we asked the NZ PM to allow the family to migrate to NZ together to keep the family unit intact and avoid exposing these vulnerable people any further trauma.
We were asked by few families to approach your office seeking help to convince the NZ PM to help these families.
We would appreciate meeting with you to discuss the issue and provide you with more information about the suffering of these families. I can be contacted on 0000000000
Social Justice Network, President
