??David Coleman, Minister for Immigration of Australia issued a stern statement.

??According to the Epoch Times, over 4,100 VISAs from foreign criminals have been canceled since 2014 by the centre-right Liberal Coalition government;??Compared to 582 canceled VISAS under the left-leaning Labor government from 2009 to 2013.
