Tyrone Sevilla, age nine, has autism and might have been deported from Australia. Immigration Minister Peter Dutton was motivated to reconsider the decision when he received a petition of over 125,000 signatures (4000 pages) in person. Minister Dutton commented:
“I looked at the case and I have determined that we will provide these people with a permanent arrangement and a permanent outcome in Australia, and I think that’s good for them. I’m very pleased that we can provide the assistance to a young boy who is in need of medical and educational support, and as a generous country, that’s what we do.”

Nice to see compassion in action:
