No plan for refugees left behind by US

From , 4:05 pm on 15 November 2016

The Human Rights Law Centre says Australia's plan to resettle refugees in the United States of America could leave hundreds languishing in detention on Nauru and Manus Island.

The Australian government says the 1,600 refugees it's detained offshore for three years are eligible for resettlement in the US.

But the Law centre's Daniel Webb says there's no plan for the refugees the US leaves behind.
