Australian Government has introduced tougher anti-people smuggling measures to prevent illegal immigrants to the country with effect from yesterday.

The new measures, including a ban on permanent protection visas for people who arrived before July 19 this year, demonstrated the strength of the Australian Government’s stand on illegal immigrants.

Minister for Immigration and Border Protection of Australia Scott Morrison said that smugglers would try to encourage people to get on boats, but they should not listen to their lies as the country would never allow any illegal boat people to stay in the country.

Morrison said the Australian Government’s message is crystal clear and all people arrive in Australia by boat illegally will be sent to Papua New Guinea or Nauru.
