How a lowlife wife killer, gangsters and domestic violence thugs are among dozens of foreign criminals allowed to remain in Australia – and the reason will INFURIATE Aussies
- Criminals were given a second chance by the Administrative Appeals Tribunal
- Immigration Minister Alex Hawke deported several thugs from Australia
- But they have been allowed to stay after the AAT overturned the decision
Some of Australia’s most violent foreign criminals and drug thugs are allowed to remain in in the country after getting a second chance because they’ve ‘found god’ or suffered childhood trauma.
Several non-citizens and asylum seekers, including a wife killer, carjacker, drug trafficker, a bikie and a domestic violence thug, were deported from Australia by Immigration Minister Alex Hawke.
But they have now been allowed to stay in the country after the Administrative Appeals Tribunal overturned the government’s decision.
The criminals either turned to religion, suffered childhood trauma or needed to put the needs of their Aussie children first, The Daily Telegraph reports.

Mr Hawke said the AAT ‘must give weight to serious crimes committed by visa holders’.
‘In light of some concerning decisions, I issued a ministerial direction making it abundantly clear that having an Australian visa is a privilege and not a right, and that those who commit serious crimes should face the full force of the law,’ he told News Corp.
Among the thugs allowed to stay in Australia is an Uber driver who beat his wife with a large stick in 2014.
His bid for citizenship was in refused on character grounds before the AAT overturned the decision and ruled he ‘appears to have devoted himself’ to his wife and children.
An Afghan asylum seeker who became a bikie gang member of the New Boyz and attacked a man with an axe Adelaide will also be allowed to stay in Australia.
The 33-year-old had his visa revoked, before the AAT ruled the man not to be a ‘danger to the community’.
A French engineer is allowed to visit his daughter in Australia despite being convicted of killing his wife in 1999 amid their bitter divorce.
He was initially banned from entering the country, but the AAT overturned the Home Affairs Department’s decision, citing Moreau ‘does not pose a risk of reoffending’.
