SydneyLess than a month after a young child with autism was spared from being deported in Australia, another child with autism is in danger of being forced to leave the country.

But unlike 10-year-old Tyrone Sevilla, who was told to leave due to his disability, Emiline Lim will be deported because of rather unfortunate circumstances.

Emiline and her mother, Mei Tieng Lim, moved to Australia to try and find a better life. Prior to their stay in Australia, Mei was left no choice but to leave her daughter in an orphanage while she was away for work, struggling to make ends meet. Whenever she came back to see Emiline, the child would be unclean and covered in lice and scabies. Mei decided she needed to do something to get her child a better life.

After a while, she somehow managed to get herself and her daughter a tourist visa to Australia, where she ended up finding work as a cleaner at a church in Sydney. Mei was able to send Emiline to a school where she was given interventions, and just barely a year later, she started showing drastic improvements.

But all of that may go down the drain if Emiline and her mother will be sent back to Indonesia, where she may be forced to live in an orphanage again— unless Immigration Minister Peter Dutton tells them that they can stay.

Thousands have already signed a petition at that pleads for the Australian Immigration Minister to let Mei and her daughter stay, but Mr. Dutton is yet to comment on the issue.
