Australian Minister Counsellor Home Affairs, Tara Cavanagh launched her government’s new campaign to save lives at sea and deter vulnerable people from falling prey to people smugglers called Zero Chance here on Tuesday.
“The message of ‘Zero Chance’ is simple – anyone who tries to come to Australia illegally by boat has zero chance of success. No one will succeed. Anyone who says otherwise is lying,” the communique stated.
“Our surveillance and on-water response capabilities, teamed with cooperation from our regional law enforcement partners, will continue to ensure that anyone who tries to reach Australia illegally by boat will not succeed,” Cavanaugh said.
