KAREN ANDREWS BROUGHT IN TO CLEAN UP PETER DUTTON'S MESS
 

When Karen Andrews sits down at the Home Affairs Minister's desk on her first day in her new role, she will discover the string of disasters that Peter Dutton has left behind.

Despite the best efforts of dedicated public servants, the Department of Home Affairs is riddled with waste, mismanagement and rorting after eight years of ‘Liberal leadership’, first by Scott Morrison and then Peter Dutton. 

The Home Affairs portfolio – which includes responsibility for the Australian Border Force, ASIO, the Australian Federal Police, the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission, the Australian Institute of Criminology, the Office of the Special Investigator and AUSTRAC – is too important to the welfare and prosperity of Australia and Australians to continue to neglect.

Nothing less than Australia's safety and security is at stake - and Australians deserve a Government that is on their side.
