Migration Bill passes Lower House

ABC reports "three Federal Government MPs have crossed the floor and another has abstained from voting as the controversial move to extend offshore processing for asylum seekers passed the House of Representatives.

Petro Georgiou, Russell Broadbent and Judi Moylan sided with the Opposition and Bruce Baird abstained, but the Bill still passed."

The Senate remains the only hope of stalling and reviewing this legislation. Now is the time to pull out all the stops in contacting Senators identified in an earlier blog. We need your action urgently.
