Australias Immigration Make Mistake
A teenager from Melbourne and a large number of people from the Melbourne community, have been left outraged due to an error by the Australian Immigration Department, the error meant that the teenage boy was wrongfully told he must leave Australia. A last minute application for appeal has recently been made by the children's commissioner, teachers and the boys parents, in a bid to assist Wen Xiang Mao, who is known to many as “Gary”, to be allowed to remain in Australia where he can conclude his education at high school level.

The Chinese teenager, now 16 years old, came to Australia on a 457 visa from china when he was 10, he travelled to the country with his parents, in September 2013 the boys mother was deported and it is unknown as to where his father is located.

Wen Xiang Mao classes himself as Australian Chinese, he attends Brunswick Secondary College where the popular student is achieving good levels of education, however, due to the deportation of his mother, his visa is not valid any more and he has been told he has until Wednesday to make his departure.

After the offices of Australian Immigration Minister Scott Morrison was questioned by Fairfax Media, it was brought to light that Wen Xiang Mao did actually have a valid visa and an error had been made within the department. In 2013 the former Immigration Minister had granted exemptions, yet on the 9th of January 2013 a letter was written to Wen Xiang Mao, from the Immigration Department which bluntly said, a decision had been made by the Australian Immigration Minister Scott Morrison and he would not be intervening with the case and ultimately Wen Xiang Mao must leave Australia.

It has since been reported that Scott Morrison's office have spoken out to say that a valid visa had actually been granted but a departmental error had allowed a submission of intervention to be placed from the minister, wrongfully, because the issue had already been decided upon at an earlier stage, the original decision will remain as it was and the visa now will be granted.

On Monday a campaign from the community was in full flow and an Immigration Lawyer had been involved and instructed to act on behalf of the teenage boy. A member of the Immigration Department made a call to Wen Xiang Mao on Monday, the teenager and his Australian guardian are said to have been overjoyed by the news.
