Daniel Andrews: Victoria will take asylum seekers

Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has written to the Prime Minister offering to “accept full responsibility” for the families and children brought to Australia from Nauru.

In a letter to Malcolm Turnbull – posted on Mr Andrews’ Facebook page and Twitter account on Saturday – the Labor premier told the Prime Minister that Victoria would gladly take on the asylum seekers rather than have them return to “a life of physical and emotional trauma” in immigration detention.
