canberra - Australia is not pregnant immigrant women on the island of Nauru . Even if they refuse medical treatment on the Micronesian island. That Minister Peter Dutton of Immigration said Thursday , reports the BBC.
Naura is a small independent island with about 10.000 inhabitants. There beaches occasionally refugees were on their way to Australia, but this country refuses reception of asylum seekers.
