The Home Affairs Minister also accused Priya and Nadesalingam of using their children to justify their migration case.

Peter Dutton has warned the Federal Court case over a Biloela family being detained on Christmas Island could drag out for months as he accused the parents of using their child as leverage to seek asylum.

Speaking to 2GB, Mr Dutton said the long-running fight for Australian protection had cost taxpayers"literally millions of dollars", saying there was no immediate end in sight to their Federal Court case.

“It’s been made very clear to them at every turn that they were not going to stay in Australia and they still had children.”

“The facts are that the conditions of Nades’ visa prevented him from leaving and then returning to Australia," said family friend Simone Cameron.

Mr Dutton said the latest legal challenge could take months to resolve.

Shadow Minister for Home Affairs and Immigration Kristina Keneally speaks to the media in Adelaide.

"It's not simply the act of having a child," she said.

“There are 6,000 people behind them who have similar family compositions.”
