I have a message for anyone considering illegal travel to Australia by boat. Don't.
Australia’s tough border protection policies mean no one who travels illegally by boat will ever be allowed to live or work in Australia.
Australia recently intercepted 13 people who unsuccessfully attempted to come here by boat. They wasted their money, needlessly put their lives at risk and as you can see are now back in Sri Lanka and subject to further investigation by Sri Lankan authorities.
I am committed to protecting Australia’s borders, combatting people smuggling and preventing vulnerable people from risking their lives at sea.
Under Australia’s Operation Sovereign Borders, you have zero chance of success.
