Irish family of sick boy classed as tax 'burden' allowed to stay in Australia
Minister intervenes in the case of Australian-born Darragh Hyde, 3, who has cystic fibrosis
An Irish family facing deportation because their Australian-born son was considered a “burden” on the health system have been offered a last-minute reprieve.
Anthony and Christine Hyde, and their son Darragh, 3, who has cystic fibrosis, were granted a ministerial intervention on Friday, after their pending deportation caused outrage across the country.
The family moved to Australia in 2009 and have been fighting to stay on since 2015, when it emerged that Darragh’s condition prevented him from passing the medical assessment for those applying for permanent residency.
You're A Real Legend Tim Minchin....
Tim has just donated $70,000 from his Melbourne shows to the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre.
This won't be forgotten by his fans, who have more reason now to support his fabulous shows (although they are generally Sold Out)........ Maybe other artistes can take a lead.. kindness pays.
