Australia to send unaccompanied children to Malaysia through an asylum deal

Australian Immigration Minister said that as part of a policy to deter people smuggler plans to selling passage to asylum seekers had announced that Australia would send unaccompanied children seeking asylum to Malaysia. This statement came after a deal with malaysia ¬†which consisted of a controversial swap under which Malaysian asylum seekers can settle in Australia. The Minister said this move was made to break the business model of the people smugglers. This move has come under serious fear and outrage about the ¬†safety of children specially the girls. Amnesty International and leaders from the opposition have strongly condemned the government’s plan stating that asylum centers in malaysia are unsafe and dangerous for the children deported.
