The Daily Telegraph understands Tomasi Taulahi, who had links to the Lone Wolf bikie gang and a lengthy criminal record, was among three booted for national security concerns.

Mr Taulahi initially won a last-minute bid to stay in the country after Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton had cancelled his visa in the national interest because he did not pass the character test.

 

Mr Dutton said the Turnbull Government made no apology for acting against non-Australians who commit serious crime in our communities.

In NSW in the past financial year 81 foreigners had their visa cancelled for committing violent assaults, 26 for other violent crimes as 51 because of major drug offences.

The visas of five people convicted of murder and one convicted of manslaughter were also cancelled, as were those of nine rapists and 14 child sex offenders.

Mr Dutton said the Turnbull Government made no apology for acting against non-Australians who commit serious crime in our communities.

“They forfeit their ability to live in this great country once they break our laws and commit violent or other serious crimes,� he said.
