Nothing about the ‘US refugee deal’ is certain; President Trump is only going to ‘consider the dumb deal’. There are serious doubts that it will go ahead at all. No one knows what “extreme vetting” means to the thousands of people on Manus and Nauru already there for over three years.

In any case the deal falls far short of what is needed to ensure security for all of the people Australia sent to Nauru and Manus Island. Those on Manus and Nauru should not wait one day longer for freedom, urgent action is needed to bring the refugees to Australia.

This forum will discuss the politics of the US refugee deal, and building the campaign to #bringthemhere.
