Australia is poised to bar its citizens who have fought for Daesh from returning home for up to two years, under new laws discussed in Parliament Tuesday.It is one of several controversial measures being considered by parliament in the first legislative sitting week since Australia's conservative government was re-elected in May.Other proposals include repealing the so-called "Medevac" law that allows sick asylum seekers and refugees held in Pacific camps to be brought to Australia for medical treatment.Australia has defended its policies as humanitarian in nature, saying hundreds of people have drowned at sea trying to reach the country and that it is deterring people from making such journeys.
