Dozens of children being held in detention camps on Nauru have began practicing to become au pairs after recent reports uncovering the Australian government’s generosity in granting visas for au pairs over people fleeing from persecution and war.

Former Immigration Minister Peter Dutton has told reporters if these kids are able to cook and clean they will be eligible for long-term residency.

Dutton says fleeing from one mansion to the next will not guarantee residency in Australia but it’s a “good start”.

“We will decide who comes to this country and it requires a lot of elbow grease,” says Dutton.

“We apply strict conditions of entry, after a good clean I should be able to see a potato staring back at me,” says Dutton.
