I would like to express my sympathy for the victims of the Paris attacks as well as condemn comments by Nationals MP Andrew Fraser who has
called for Australia to ‘close borders’.
It is disgusting to see such xenophobia coming from a NSW Coalition MP.
Mike Baird must distance himself from these comments and reiterate
his support for refugees coming from the Middle East, refugees who
need our help, regardless of where they came from or what their
Mr Fraser does not seem to realise that refugees coming from the
Middle East are fleeing the exact sort of horrible violence that
rocked Paris on Friday night.
My thoughts are with the victims of violence around the world, from
Paris to Beirut, their families, friends, and loved ones.
