Nauru kids will never settle in Australia

The government has been under mounting pressure over its treatment of the children.

In recent weeks, the government has been under intense pressure to resolve what many doctors and other health professionals said is a mental health crisis on the island. The kidsoffnarua campaign has involved a television advertising campaign fronted by doctors to claim the children on Nauru need urgent medical attention, 6,000 doctors have signed an open letter calling for children to be removed from Nauru.

Activists said there were now 38 children on the island. "But especially to these young men who are (at the Manus Island detention centre) for the most part. they are in utter despair with very similar medical indications".

Human Rights Law Centre advocacy director Daniel Webb plans to launch legal challenges to keep the children in Australia once they arrive, but says the government is finding ways to get them to return. "It's been done in accordance with our policies, our existing policies".

"I think now is exactly the wrong time to be sending people to New Zealand because we don't have Labor's agreement on the lifetime ban, and it's doubtful they would support it, and secondly, there's too much activity and too much speculation around which means NZ would be a pull factor", he said.

"They (families) aren't given visas, they are basically held in community detention until their issues (treatment) are resolved, and some of them are actually being held in fenced detention centres", George Newhouse of the National Justice Project told reporters Thursday.

Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton said the refusal by a sizeable number of people on Nauru to resettle in the United States indicated they were not genuine refugees.

Australia aims to remove all asylum seeker children from Nauru within two months as concerns escalate about their deteriorating health. "What is important is that durable solutions are found for families and children who have experienced persecution", Freyana Irani said.

"While many children in Australia enjoy a good quality of life, for the ones that don't, the extent of the disparity is shocking", Ms Irani said. Papua New Guinea has male-only facilities and all asylum-seekers there are adults.

"There are hardly any children in Nauru and [Papua] New Guinea and we expect that by the end of this year there will be none", Australia's high commissioner (ambassador) in London George Brandis told British talkback radio station LBC Thursday.

"Labor supports third country resettlement arrangements and we ask the government to consider the New Zealand offer".

This "problem" that has "largely gone away", includes children under the age of ten attempting suicide, refusing to eat and/or drink and otherwise dwelling in a hopeless, unsafe existence, just so that the big scary Australian government can look "tough" on people smuggling.

What is seen to have changed the Government's hardline position is the result of the Wentworth by-election with newly elected independent Kerryn Phelps listing as among her first priorities as a member of parliament was to get kids off Nauru.
