Australian Policy: Operation Sovereign Borders
The new Government has introduced a tough new policy for managing unauthorised maritime arrivals by boat to Australia called Operation Sovereign Borders. This is a new military-led border security initiative to stop the boats, to prevent people risking their lives at sea and to preserve the integrity of Australia’s immigration program.
