Australia targets Kiwis for deportation with old law

From Morning Report, 6:11 am on 13 October 2017

An Australian immigration professor says Canberra may be moving into a second phase of its immigration crackdown. Lawyers and community groups in Queensland say many more visas are now being cancelled under a little-used law, called Section 116. Previously, a law called Section 501 has been used most often to detain and deport New Zealanders. Associate immigration professor Peter Billings of Queensland University told RNZ's Phil Pennington that what appears to be a change in strategy is hitting refugees and other non-citizens.
