Submission to PJCIS review of the Australian Citizenship Amendment Allegiance to Australia) Bill 2015 - July 2015

It presents a significant threat to the separation of powers and the rule of law. Indeed, the Bill is founded on a significant reconceptualisation of the relationship between the State and the citizen.
