Petition is successful with 143,648 signatures
To: Immigration Minister Scott Morrison
Don't Deport Ali Choudhry
The ABC has reported that the Department of Immigration have confirmed Ali's bridging visa. With a bridging visa, Ali and Matt can stay together while they wait for the Migration Review Tribunal to hear Ali's case.
We put the weight of 140,000 signatures on the Immigration Minister, by publicly delivering the petition to his office and swamping him with tweets, emails and loads of media stories. That pressure forced the Department to do what they had failed to for months: confirm a bridging visa for Ali allowing him to remain in Australia.
