A criminal with 35 convictions – all against female victims – is expected to be deported to New Zealand after having his visa cancelled by Australian immigration authorities under a new policy. […]

[Glenn Taylor] was born in New Zealand but has lived in Australia since he was four years old. He has a history of domestic violence, stalking, harassment, and assaulting at least two police officers. […]

“What we went through was traumatic. No family should have to go through what we went through. I believe he should have been deported. Not just because of what he put me through … it’s an extensive case with multiple victims, [says Jesica Mills, who lived next to Taylor in 2022].

“If there’s convictions again and again, when does the government say, ‘this person is not a good person in our country?’”

Taylor was now expected to be sent to New Zealand after being remanded at an immigration detention centre.

He would have the option to appeal the decision at the Federal Court. However, he would need to prove there was an error in [Immigration Minister Andrew Giles] decision to cancel his visa.
