I seek leave to make a short statement.

Leave is granted for one minute.

As is the case with all migration matters, it's not appropriate for the Senate to deliberate on individual migration cases. This is irrespective of the case or the profile of any individual or family in question. Furthermore, senators would be asked to vote about a case without the full facts in front of them and, as is the case in this circumstance, where there are matters currently before the courts.
