As brutal as it sounds, you reap what you sow.
I'm happy to see DIBP take action on such people who say something and do the absolute opposite. If you call Australia home, treat it like home and look after it!

I totally disagree that people who have lived their entire lives in Australia can be deported, regardless of what crimes they have committed, just because they lack one piece of paper, a citizenship certificate. If he had become an Australian citizen, he could have committed far worse crimes, but would have been allowed to remain here. Where is the justice in that? And why burden other countries with criminals who are the product of our society. I think this legislation is way too inflexible.

I agree. Ice seems to be a big problem here. I don't know whether it is or not in Chile but why should they have to deal with something that is a product of Australian society when he has never contributed there either positively or negatively? They will be burdened with looking after someone who has never contributed towards the Chilean system. At least here in Australia we can assume that he's probably worked at some point and therefore contributed. Or maybe his wife has.

Would he have been eligible for citizenship?

He would have been eligible for citizenship as a child or any time before he went off the rails. His wife and children are now also being punished for his crimes. Sending him to a country where he has never lived and where he doesn't speak the language is madness. This legislation is seriously flawed.

Totally! If he'd come over here as an adult it'd be different, but like you say apart from a piece of paper he is Australian.

Let's say you had twin brothers who both migrated to Australia as children. One became an Australian citizen, the other one never bothered and remained PR.

They commit a hideous crime together. One is deported, the other one is not. There is something wrong with this legislation.

I think anyone who migrated to Australia when under 18 should be exempt from this. Anyone else should have access to a fair appeals process, especially when they have been rehabilitated during their imprisonment.

Citizenship is more than a piece of paper, it is a commitment to the country you are choosing to live in.
If an adult decides not to take citizenship it's their choice. However I dont expect them bleat about it if they get kicked out because of their own criminal behaviour.

There are many (often practical) reason why people do not become citizens. This often has to do with circumstances/laws in their home country.Others are simply not up to dealing with or aware of the process, especially those who have lived here since they were small children.

I believe that most Permanent Residents are just as committed to Australia as those who take out Citizenship.

Never mind. The law is what it is, but I believe it is seriously flawed and serves no real purpose in instances like this one.
