    Australia Takes Action Against Foreigners Working Illegally

    Immigration compliance officers are continuing to take strong action against foreign nationals working illegally in Australia, with seven people detained in Robinvale overnight.

    “Those who think the Department of Immigration and Citizenship [DIAC] is too preoccupied with Christmas Island asylum seekers to look for illegal workers have been misinformed,” a departmental spokesman said.

    “The results rebut any suggestion immigration compliance officers are ‘putting their feet up’ due to recent transfers of some asylum seekers into mainland detention facilities.

    “Our Melbourne compliance team located seven illegal farm workers in country Victoria late yesterday.

    “Six are expected to be removed from Australia shortly. The seventh – who was on a visitor visa that has now been cancelled for working in breach of its conditions – has an air ticket and plans to depart voluntarily.”

    The spokesman said following the compliance operation in the Robinvale area, all of the unlawful non-citizens were taken to Melbourne’s Maribyrnong Immigration Detention Centre. Five of the illegal workers – four Philippines nationals and a Philippines-born United Kingdom national – were located at a residential address in Lake Powell.

    The others – a Thai couple – were located at a residential address in Robinvale. They had overstayed their visitor visas and were also working illegally on nearby farms. The husband and wife are now in detention in Melbourne pending their removal to Thailand.

    “All employers need to be aware it is a criminal offence to employ or refer a person for employment where that person is not entitled to work in Australia,” the spokesman said.

    I met two farm owners in Queensland who had both been fined for having illegal workers and I believe that the fines were substantial. In both cases the workers were European backpackers who were working without visas.

    I guess the fact that the farms I spoke of were on the Eastern seaboard made it more likely to be investigated as that seems to be where most backpackers go.
