We vote for the Government, not the AAT. why should they have power to
overturn ministerial decisions?..

" HALF of the illegal boat people the Coalition Government tried to kick
out of Australia have been saved by the Administrative Appeals Tribunal
overturning the deportation decision."

. . . . . .

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-05-16/peter-dutton-blames-politics-over-blocked-bid-to-deport-refugees/8530060

"Immigration Minister Peter Dutton has suggested politics played a role
in the blocking of his bid to deport six refugees, after some had
travelled to Iran to go "back for a holiday". "

. . . . . .

http://www.sbs.com.au/yourlanguage/punjabi/en/article/2017/05/17/one-third-visa-cancellations-overturned-appeal

" .. reported last week that 39 per cent of decisions made by the
Immigration Minister or his delegate were overturned by the
Administrative Appeals Tribunal last year."

. . . . . .

"Six Iranian boat people have been given permission to stay in Australia
despite being caught taking trips back to the country they left in fear
of their lives."

. . . . . .

If the idiots who make these decisions overturning government rulings
became the victims of crime themselves instead of other innocent
Australians - if they were victims of violent home invasions, car
jackings, bashings, etc., - hopefully they would have a different
mindset about turning criminals loose on the public

The "government", means the executive government. The AAT is part of
the executive government. Checks and balances are applied by the other
two limbs of government ie the judiciary and the legislature. Those two
limbs are external review mechanisms of the executive government.

The AAT is merely part of the internal review mechanisms of the
executive government.

If you want to throw those word around like that, you can, of course.
But be aware that the concept of "checks and balances" has been around
for centuries, and is reflected in the Australian constitution and the
constitution of each of the States. If you use it in a different and
much smaller context, it indicates a certain lack of awareness of
centuries of political thought.

I happen to think that the AAT is an important institution in giving
people cheap and quick access to administrative justice in the context
of reviewing those administrative decisions made in high-volume
situations, where getting the facts right is usually much more important
than the law. But a "check and balance" on the executive government it
is not.

The checks and balances between the executive and legislative are in
practice extremely limited becacause of our system and unlike in the US

It is certainly a check on the executive and by giving a quick and cheap
access to a review to an Executive decision it balances the 'power'
between the Executive and the people. Of course it eventually it is up
to the the Judiciary

Because Dutton didn't apply the facts correctly? Are you accusing all of
the 160+ members of the different tribunals as biased and do you think
Hon Justice John Logan's appointment will suddenly change the facts that

Pigs arse he didn’t. The arsehole that claimed he was at risk of execution
if he returned to where he came from was obviously lying given that he

As I have stated before the Minister can appeal the decisions if he
thinks they are wrong in law ( there a couple I think he should ) but I
have seen no great movement to overturn the AAT decisions.

There isnt even the remotest possibility that any govt dept

We vote for the Government, not the AAT. why should they have power
to overturn ministerial decisions?..
Because Felix in this land we have a system of law (Came from a place
called Westminster) where:-

We have:-

The courts to deliver justice and safeguard the Law.

The Parliament to make laws (which have to be within their power to
make and generally have to be consistent with past laws, unless of
course the intent is to extinguish the past law, and the Parliament
actually has the power to do so.

The executive - to actually do stuff, you know like fill all those
building built for public servants.



Now if a minister makes a decision that is wrong in law, then the
Judiciary has the power to override it (and the AAT whilst not
constituted as a court, has many of the powers of a court and that
includes reversing decisions by the executive that are "ultra-vires".
(When a minister makes a decision on a matter within his control, he is
acting administratively BTW).


If parliament can't get the executive to do what they want, all they
need do is change the law - if they can.



Were that not the case, we would no longer be living in a democracy but
in a dictatorship.

if that appeals to you, there are many to choose from, some quite close
geographically and I am sure that a crowd-funding proposal to assist

The idea that these decisions are made by the minister is a fiction. The
numbers involved are much too high for it to be possible for the
minister to be making the decisions. In reality, the decisions are made
by civil servants. The AAT is just making sure that the civil servants
are doing their job correctly.

would not have personally made the decisions that were challenged.

It would be easier and probably safer ground to simply assume that you

They have not yet deported you officially. Big mistake.
Hopefully this error now will be remedied.
Should you ever attempt to return from your self imposed Trump and/or

I would suggest that the public service on the instructions of the

half of the time? I suggest not

" HALF of the illegal boat people the Coalition Government tried to kick
out of Australia have been saved by the Administrative Appeals Tribunal
overturning the deportation decision."
The idea that these decisions are made by the minister is a fiction.
The numbers involved are much too high for it to be possible for the
minister to be making the decisions. In reality, the decisions are
made by civil servants. The AAT is just making sure that the civil
servants are doing their job correctly.
it would seem to me that the public servants are doing their job
correctly, but the AAT is not. surely we can assume that there are sound
reasons why a decision is made to deport ppl. are we supposed to believe
that the government gets it wrong half of the time? or can we assume

Seems they do looking at the AAT figures

Well Fetid, you were a public servant and are the poster boy for

You assume that the AAT gets it wrong because of your bias. You have
not read any of the judgments to confirm your view. I assume that the
Department of Immigration and Border Protection Minister gets it wrong
because of my bias. I have also not read any AAT judgments that
confirm my view. It is clear that statements by Minister Dutton only
emphasise keeping people out. Even the name of the Department
indicates that it is likely the Department favours decisions to deport
people even if they are not strictly correct.

I suggest ONLY getting 1/3 of *anything* wrong would be an amazing
achievement for either the Liberal *OR* Labor governments!!!!!
Not something I expect they will EVER achieve unfortunately. Obviously
the AAT doesn't always get it right either. The question is whether
their mistakes are the same ones as the government, that would probably
be just as likely.
