To the Honourable Members of the House of Representatives in the Parliament assembled. We the undersigned, pray that your Honourable House will urge the Government to reconsider its deportation order on Mr and Mrs Heer.

Ranjeet Singh Heer and his wife Parmjeet Kaur Heer are facing deportation from this country. They fear that their lives are in danger should they be forced to return to India. They are also the parents of two Australian-born children.

Ranjeet and Parmjeet are a hard-working, dedicated couple whose main concern is obviously for the welfare and safety of their family. They have a house, work and friends here in Australia and regard this country as their home.

Because of the danger to their lives and for the sake of their Australian-born children, they should be permitted to stay in this country: With their children, where they belong!

We, the undersigned, wish to show our support for Ranjeet Singh Heer and Parmjeet Kaur Heer, and ask the Government to show compassion in their case, and allow them to remain in Australia and we, as in duty bound, will ever pray.
