Peter Dutton’s Department Took An Eleven-Year-Old Boy From His Home And Unlawfully Detained Him

Peter Dutton’s Department of Home Affairs unlawfully detained 39 people in immigration detention during an 18-month period, including an 11-year-old boy who was removed from his home in Australia by Australian Border Force (ABF) officers.

Documents obtained by BuzzFeed News under freedom of information law reveal serious shortcomings in how the department handles visa decisions and takes people into immigration detention.
