Asylum seekers only have to ‘chuck a sickie’ in order to come to Australia thanks to new legislation, according to Liberal Senator for Tasmania Eric Abetz.

The bill will see asylum seekers who need medical attention brought to Australia, and has raised concerns about Australia’s national security. Labor has assured the public that this will only apply to those refugees on Nauru prior to the bill being passed.

Senator Abetz joins Brian Carlton this morning to speak about his concerns regarding the legislation.
