Compassion does not excist in the Liberal party

Airlines won't fly her, now woman, 104, ordered out - National -

Stuff the Liberal party having liberal values. This party is the most right-wing and uncompassionate government in a long time. A 104 year old chinese woman has been refused a visa and cannot go home because she is too frail to fly. Without a visa she is an illegal immigrant and presumably she could be held in immigration detention until she dies. She cannot get access to public health services without a visa and because of her age, her medical bills are a big problem. The family of the woman has called for some compassion.
