The Australian Government must immediately rule out sending persecuted Hazara people back to Afghanistan, Greens Immigration spokesperson Nick McKim says.

"The Hazaras are one of the most persecuted peoples on earth, and continue to be targeted across Afghanistan," Senator McKim said.

"There are several thousand Hazara people currently in Australia who have a legitimate fear of persecution if they are forcibly returned to Afghanistan."

"Malcolm Turnbull must rule out sending Hazaras to Afghanistan."
