Refugee children won’t be allowed to stay in Australia

(CNN)Dozens of refugee children and their families set to be transferred from the tiny island of Nauru won’t be allowed to permanently settle in Australia, the country’s Home Minister Peter Dutton said Thursday.

Dutton’s comments came after Prime Minister Scott Morrison confirmed that his government is working “quietly” to remove the remaining children on Nauru, where they were sent as part of Australia’s strict immigration policies.
Australia reintroduced offshore detention centers in 2012 after a surge in the number of asylum seekers trying to reach the country by boat.
