Every asylum seeker child has now been removed from Nauru or has had their claim processed and has a clear path off the island.

Our strong border protection policies mean we’ve been able to stop the boats and work through the backlog of cases Labor created when 50,000 people arrived on 800 boats on their watch.

There were 109 asylum seeker children on Nauru at the end of August 2018 at the time we took on our respective roles as Prime Minister and Minister for Immigration.

It’s great to be out here enjoying Australia Day. Make sure to be sun smart and be conscious of the heat and take a look at the people next to you and make sure they’re OK as well as they’re out enjoying this wonderful day all around the country.
