To the Honourable President and Senators assembled in parliament:

This petition of certain citizens of Australia draws to the attention of the Senate:

There are still many kids held in immigration detention in Australia. Most have been there for over two years. A detention centre is no place for children to grow up.

We therefore pray that the Senate asks the Minister for Immigration to exercise her power to immediately release these children and their families from behind the razor wire.

by Senator Crossin (from 83 citizens).
