Sydney. October 8, 2010. Blacktown Migrant Workers Union President Neil Galang announced today that the scheduled deportation of Analiza Capili and her family was ordered stopped by Chris Bowen, Minister of Immigration and Citizenship. The Capilis were scheduled to have been deported on Saturday night, 10 October 2010. All seven members of the family had in fact, packed their belongings but were still hopeful that Neil Galang would succeed in his bid for a permanent residency status for them.
In an exclusive news article sent to Philippine Sentinel, Mr. Galang said that the Honorable Ed Husic, Federal Member for Chifley was instrumental in halting the deportation order. Through personal representations made with the Minister, Mr. Husic succeeded in obtaining a ‘Stop Order’ in deporting the Capilis. Blacktown Migrant Workers Union (BMWU) top honcho Neil Galang expressed his deep appreciation for the assistance given by Husic.
This happy development paves the way for a re-submission and review of the application for migration of the Capili family.
Analiza Capili had initially lost her bid to obtain permanent residency in Australia when she failed the International English Language Test (IELT) by half a point. This was in spite of her being able to graduate from her studies at TAFE Blacktown.
BMWU was also successful in obtaining hundreds of signatures during the recent anniversary celebrations of Philippine Community Council. The petition was spearheaded by PCC President Elsa Collado. – ©
