Even still, Mr Shorten believes the "incompetent and divided" Morrison government should call an election as soon as possible.

'Under Labor's law, a person who has been convicted of serious offences would have to come to Australia and there is nothing the minister could do to stop it, ' he said.

But because it was amended in the House of Representatives on Tuesday, it returned to the Senate for another vote on Wednesday.

On Tuesday, non-government MPs secured enough votes to pass a bill making it easier for sick refugees held offshore to be treated in the country.

The push to speed up medical evacuations was first made by independent MP Kerryn Phelps past year after she won the Liberal Party stronghold of Wentworth when former PM Malcolm Turnbull was ousted in a party coup.

Since 2013, Australia has sent asylum seekers arriving by boat to detention centres on Manus Island (Papua New Guinea) and Nauru.

"We have approved putting in place the reopening of the Christmas Island detention facilities, both to deal with the prospect of arrivals as well as dealing with the prospect of transfers", Morrison said.

Australia's Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced on Wednesday the reopening of the Christmas Island immigration detention center. The government of prime minister Arthur Fadden lost a symbolic budget vote in 1941 and immediately resigned.

Mr Porter said a refugee on Manus Island was facing sex abuse charges and someone on Nauru had been charged with indecently assaulting a child.

"My job now is to do everything in my power, in the power of the government, to ensure what the Parliament has done to weaken our borders does not result in boats coming to Australia".

Refugee advocates applaud the law that they regard as a more humanitarian approach toward asylum seekers.

As a result, a "range of strengthenings" will boost Operation Sovereign Borders, but certain details of the stronger capacity won't be publicly revealed.

Mr Shorten dismissed that claim and argued the bill simply allowed for better medical care for asylum seekers who needed help in Australia.

"Where we will always stand, and the Australian people can always trust us to do, is to have the mettle to ensure the integrity of our border protection framework".

Shonky bankers could soon be jailed for up to 15 years and corporate crooks fined up to $525 million. "This puts Australia back on the map for people smugglers and Bill Shorten has that on his shoulders".

"Today Labor will fight for more jail time and increased penalties for banks and bankers who do the wrong thing", Opposition Leader Bill Shorten said.

Labor is also pushing major reforms to the health system.
