Submission to the Legal and Constitutional Committee of the Senate concerning the Australian Citizenship Legislation Amendment (Strengthening the Requirements for Australian Citizenship and Other Measures) Bill 2017 - July 2017

The Bill would create a class of permanent residents who are denied recognition as citizens. This cannot be to the benefit of Australian society. The extended powers create a high risk that they will, by error or design, be subject to misuse and the creation of unfairness. No Minister should  have such unfettered powers.
