Anti-immigration activist denied entry to Australia because she filled out wrong visa form

Published

Lauren Southern, a far-right Canadian activist best known for her attacks on refugees and her promotion of bogus “white genocide” narratives, has been denied entry into Australia because she filled out the wrong visa form.

Australia’s SBS News reports that Southern this week was denied a visa ahead of what had been a planned speaking tour in Australia.

According to the Australian government, Southern applied for an Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) visa, which SBS News says allows for “short-term business or travel stays for events like conferences.”

However, the visa does not cover the kind of lengthy speaking tour that Southern planned to engage in, and she’s been told that she will have to fill out a different visa application to gain entry to the country.

“The individual has a visa application before the Department which remains under consideration,” a spokesman for Australia’s Department of Homeland Affairs tells SBS News. “For visitors who may hold controversial views, any risk they may pose will be balanced against Australia’s well-established freedom of speech and freedom of beliefs, amongst other relevant considerations.”

In the past, Southern has called immigrants seeking entry into western countries “barbarians” who are “ruining everything.”

She also recently recorded a video warning Australians that they may soon fall prey to the dangers of “multiculturalism.”

“Do you want to retain your culture, do you want to retain your borders, family, identity, or will the boats keep coming?” she asked in the video. “Will the no-go zones keep growing, and will you become another victim of multiculturalism?”

Joseph Bondy, the attorney for Parnas, was interviewed Friday evening by Rachel Maddow, following the day's end of the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.

Luppen, who offers legal analysis on his popular @nycsouthpaw Twitter account, came to a conclusion that seemed to surprise him after watching the interview.

"I’ve never seen a lawyer sit on a cable panel show and make that much news," Luppen wrote.

Democratic prosecutors wrap up case against Trump

Published

on

Democratic prosecutors on Friday wrapped up three days of arguments for seeking Donald Trump's removal from office, as the US president's lawyers prepared to take their turn presenting his defense in the Senate's historic impeachment trial.

For a final eight-hour stretch, the 100 senators listened as Democrats argued that Trump abused the power of the presidency in pressuring Ukraine to launch investigations that would help him politically and then sought to block efforts by Congress to investigate.

Democrats said they had met the burden of proof as they warned Republicans that Trump would remain a grave danger to the nation if left in office.

"She shook her head and said, 'No they didn't. No, that's not true,'" Raju reported.

Sens. Tom Cotton (R-AR), Jim Risch (R-ID) Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and John Barrasso also said that the report was false.
