In a week of Sonia Kruger and Pauline Hanson nonsense, let’s talk to someone who’s actually doing something GOOD for immigrants and refugees and people of colour.
David Manne is a human rights lawyer and the Executive Director of Refugee Legal (formerly the Refugee Immigration Legal Centre or RILC). He’s passionate about helping people who ask our country for – and are deserving of – legal protection.
David gave me the lowdown on the Australian refugee crisis as he sees it: where we’re at, what laws we’re breaking, just how generous we are and what should (and can) happen next – an evacuation of people languishing in our offshore detention centres.
