Australia to Consider Fast Tracking for SA Farmers

Australian immigration and border protection minister Peter Dutton says that his department is considering fast-tracking the visas of white South African farmers looking to emigrate to Australia, because the group deserves “special attention” due to the “horrific circumstances” they face in South Africa. The immigration minister noted that Australia has refugee, humanitarian and other visa programs that have the “potential to help some of these people”. “If you look at the footage and read the stories, you hear the accounts; it’s a horrific circumstance they face,” Dutton said. “The people we’re talking about want to work hard; they want to contribute to a country like Australia,” Dutton said.
