PM Anthony Albanese meeting with the Nadesalingam family

The Prime Minister of Australia Anthony Albanese met with the family of a Tamil asylum seeker who returned to central Queensland last week after more than four years in prison. Priya Nadaraja with her family thanked PM Albanese for allowing them to return to Biloela. 

Nadesaligams still looking for a permanent residence permit. PM Albanese took his senior officials to regional Queensland this week and stopped at Gladstone today.

Priya Nadaraja, Nades, and their two Australian-born daughters, Kopika and Tharnicaa, live in Central Queensland under a bridging visa issued by the new Labor government. Anthony Gov. had assured them that a solution for permanent residence was on the way.

At his press conference, PM Albanese reiterated that the decision to allow the family to survive was with Andrew Giles, the Minister for Immigration.

“I have said before that I do not see any obstacle to the family settling in Australia, but that is a ministerial decision,” he said.

Addressing the crowd at a community meeting in Gladstone PM Albanese said:

“I went to Biloela in 2019,” 

“I went there and saw for myself a community that was caring, a community that just wanted to take care of itself – including the two little girls I had the honor of meeting this morning.

“That’s the feeling you get in regional Australia – hold on to it, hold it dear, be proud of it.”

PM Anthony said he was proud to be able to lead a country that “expressed such warmth” at the decision of then-Interior Minister Jim Chalmers to allow them to return to Biloela.

Tharnicaa Nadesalingam received 5 days after returning home.

The Biloela community officially greeted the family over the weekend at the Flourish Festival, and Tharnicaa, five, celebrated his fifth birthday on Sunday, his first out of detention.

Priya Nadaraja said

“Thank you to the Prime Minister,” “I’m back in my community, I’ve made great friends. “My mind is relaxed.”

Kopika and Tharnicaa said they were excited about going to school next week.

In her Senate speech Joni Ernst said: Blocking the bill's passage today is not just disappointing, but it is endangering, and we have to act now. I mean, you can read the Tweet. It's right here. They're Seeking Justice. They're looking for retribution and revenge, and again it was sent from U.S. soil. This tweet was If that doesn't constitute a clear and present danger demanding immediate attention, then I honestly don't know what does. Even if a nuclear agreement is reached, folks, it's not going to change Iran's at Russian influence was not curbed by the Obama-Biden administration's failures. In fact, it invigorated Iran's pursuit of nuclear weapons. Their mythical deal effectively financed the world's best organized and most capable terror group to rain down attacks on the United States

Trump in Youngstown Rally: 'A Poll Just Came Out—Did You See It?'

  Photo "Donald Trump" by  Dan Scavino At his rally last night in Youngstown, Ohio, former President Trump blasted Democrats, slammed President Biden's record, and pointed to a positive poll that showed him doing well in Ohio. Do watch below: Trump in his Youngstown rally said: A poll just came out. Did you see it? I'm 18 points up on Biden. Who the hell wouldn't be? Who wouldn't be? Who wouldn't be? We won Ohio twice, and now we're way up higher. We want it in two landslides, and now we have to give JD a landslide because he's straight. I have to give him a landslide. What a state. But you know what, coming in, I noticed some of the factories, the old buildings, and I said, you know, 50 years ago, that was something that was incredible. Now you look at them and they're not looking too good. They're not looking too good. But we brought it back and we brought it back strong, and now they're letting it go back to China and these oth

Ron DeSantis Snaps At Reporter's Question: 'Whoa Whoa Whoa - Give Me A Break - That Is Nonsense!'

Forbes breaking news official youtube channel shared this viral video, which you can watch below:   DeSantis while addressing the media briefing said: Whoa, whoa, give me a break. That is nonsense. Stop politicizing. Okay, stop it. We declared a state of emergency when this thing wasn't even formed. We've had people in here. You've had counties doing They've done a lot of hard work, and honestly,  You're attacking these other people who've worked very hard, and so that's just totally false. I don't think we've ever, certainly since I've been Governor, declared a state of emergency this early. We made sure that we were very inclusive with it. We said that there was a lot of uncertainty and then we've worked to make sure the preparations that have been done and all

Joe Biden appears lost on stage after speech in New York; Americans call it 'embarrassing' | Watch

  Photo credit: Gage Skidmore/CC BY-SA 2.0,  via Flickr Hello, my friends, and welcome back to the US Hub. Thank you very much for being with me again. Today I read an article and watched a video of the President of the United States, the leader of the Free World, Joe Biden, on the stage of Lost in Space. I don't know what he's supposed to do, or what I don't think he knows, what's going on at all. I don't know how these guys are just having sprints of energy and mental energy for this guy to read the teleprompter. I don't understand that. This guy cannot function. I didn't have any problems with him I said, "Well, you know, he's just old and all that. Even though I understand that it is for his position, he has to be sharp, he has to be fit physically and mentally, he can't be full of energy, he's got so many issues at hand, but he has to analyze to make decisions. He's not meeting the requirements for that position. He should be fired.
