Major blow to Biloela family

BREAKING: The youngest daughter of the Biloela family has been dealt a serious blow in their legal battle to remain in Australia.

I really can’t say enough about the cruelty, shameful behaviour of this government towards this much loved family. Scott should ask Jen how she would feel if it was her child lying in hospital waiting to be deported to a country that may end up killing her. Where is our humanity.
This also means that the High Court of Australia 🇦🇺 has ‘invalidated’ the Australian Birth Certificate, rendering it as ‘non-Australian’ 🤔
