If promulgating information on Australia
, it is perhaps best to provide current
information for potential new arrivals.
tientos, it was indeed I who called the checker-outers who cleared us out and then back in again a few months later the "Boarder force or some such".
Not sure why that bothers you... that's what they called themselves, that's what the badges on their uniforms said, and that is w hat they complained about to us.
"The Australian Border Force (abbreviated to ABF) is the Australian government
agency tasked with border protection and national security
duties. This agency was established on 1 July 2015 after the merger of the Australian Customs
and Border Protection Service
and some parts
of the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP). The ABF officers are also now equipped with firearms and wear a different uniform.
It was announced on 9 May 2014 by the Immigration Minister Scott Morrison MP.
The Australian Border Force draws together the operational border, investigations, compliance, detention and enforcement functions of the two existing agencies. Policy, regulatory and corporate functions will combine within the broader department."
So, seems to me that the info that I provided was in fact correct. You might want to retract your condemnation of the posts that Ann and I provided.
