Madeleine's question to the panel "in relation to the Tamil family and the enduring pressure from the community to allow the family to settle in Australia, how determined is the Australian government to use them as an example of their tough stance on asylum seekers? How far-reaching would the political ramifications be if the government allowed them to settle in Australia?"

Thanks Madeleine you have done us proud with sharing your concerns for Murugappan family and their two Australian born children. This is a matter close to the hearts of many Australians.
