The babies and their families are to stay in Australia!

Dozens of asylum seeker babies allowed to stay in Australia for refugee processing

Thirty-one babies born to asylum seekers will be allowed to stay in Australia with their immediate families while their refugee claims are assessed.
Immigration Minister Scott Morrison announced details of a new agreement struck with crossbench senator Ricky Muir in exchange for his support for the reintroduction of temporary protection visas (TPVs).
"Following representations made by Senator Ricky Muir, the Government agreed as a special one-off arrangement that the babies would not be transferred back to Nauru," Mr Morrison said in a statement.
