Hi i have a complex situation with my brother and seeking some guidance. He is currently in jail, convicted of corruption, sentenced to 5 years suspended after 20 months. He is not a citizen but has a permanent resident visa. He has been in Australia along with the rest of our family since 1962. under section 201 he automatically faces visa cancellation ands show cause. my questions are, if anyone can assist will his potential deportation be executed after his release or do they contemplate deportation while he is is serving his time? will dimia notify him during his sentence or will they wait till he is released, detain him and then advise home of their decision? Can his immigration lawyer seek and early determination so they can take others course of action for an appeal to the courts? thanks to any who can respond john
Guest posted a topic in Aussie Chathttp://www.abc.net.au/news/2011-08-10/20110810-frail-96-year-old-faces-deportation/2833542 Frail 96yo British woman faces deportation A 96-year-old British woman has been refused a visa to live out her days in northern Tasmania with her only surviving family. The Immigration Department says Gladys Jefferson was refused a visa because she would be a burden on the welfare system. But it has frustrated her Australian family who say she has the means to pay her own way. The great-grandmother was living on the Isle of Wight when she called her daughter, Bridget Grigg, in Tasmania to tell her that her health and memory had started to fail. "My mother has always, always been incredibly independent," she said. "Then about 18 months ago she was talking to me on the phone one evening and she specifically asked if she could come and live with me. "The previous phone call she said, 'I don't know how to tell you this, but I think there is something wrong with my mind'." Having outlived family and friends in the UK, Mrs Jefferson's only other option was a nursing home where she knew no-one. Her family brought her to White Hills in northern Tasmania on a 12-month tourist visa and immediately applied for a contributory parent visa, which allows parents to join their children in Australia provided they can support themselves.

"The bottom line is she doesn't fit the health requirements and she would be a drain on the Australian pocket," she said. But the family argues Mrs Jefferson can support herself financially with her significant savings and British pension. Things have not been assessed properly. I've really got quite frustrated, quite angry almost that it's got to this stage," said her son-in-law, Paul Grigg. And Mr Grigg says he is concerned other families could be facing the same battle. "The Australian public should know how difficult it is, because we would certainly not be the only people in this situation," he said. "There are obviously many migrants that come over here and will eventually get to that stage where they've got elderly parents and parents that don't have anybody else." The family has applied for a 12-month medical treatment visa as a stop-gap and have written to the Immigration Minister and the Prime Minister, pleading for them to intervene. A spokeswoman for Immigration Minister Chris Bowen says it has been long-standing policy that medical conditions are considered as part of visa applications. She says the department is working with the family on pathways for Mrs Jefferson to remain in Australia. The spokeswoman says Mr Bowen is unable to intervene in this case, as ministerial intervention can only be requested following a negative merits review outcome. The family can seek an independent merits review of the department’s decision through the Migration Review Tribunal (MRT), the spokeswoman said. First posted August 10, 2011 16:28:37
