Hundreds could face deportation under proposed terror laws: Peter Dutton

Potentially hundreds of Australians could be stripped of their citizenship and then deported, without recourse to the courts as to the merits of their defence, once the Australian Parliament passes tough new counter-terrorism laws with the support of the opposition.

On the same day that the opposition confirmed it backed extending citizenship cancellation to terrorist fighters, Immigration Minister Peter Dutton revealed security agencies were combing through the case files of Australian dual citizens at home and abroad regarded as sympathetic to terrorist organisations, involved in fighting with them, recruiting for them, and/or financing such organisations and their activities.
