Submission: Bill would see Australians stripped of their citizenship at the broad discretion of the Minister

The Federal Parliament must not pass a Bill that would see Australians stripped of their citizenship at the broad discretion of the Minister, and for relatively minor crimes.

The Australian Citizenship Amendment (Strengthening the Citizenship Loss Provisions) Bill 2018 creates a scheme that would allow arbitrary removal of citizenship, without the necessary safeguards to prevent the serious human rights violations that could flow from that removal.
