Nauru: Politicians cannot ignore community concern forever

The 11 children came to Australia with 16 family members on the advice of medical experts on Nauru who approved their transfer. In a departure from the past few years, this was done at the discretion of Immigration Minister David Coleman rather than a clash in the Federal Court.
