Priya, her husband Nadesalingam and their two Australian-born daughters, who were deported from Australia, won a last-minute delay after a judge issued an 11-hour order to block the move

A Tamil asylum seeker family that was deported from Australia but was delayed at the last minute on Thursday night is, according to & # 39; Dutton & # 39; no protection & # 39; because they & # 39; no refugees are & # 39 ;.

Kokilapathmapriya Nadesalingham (Priya), her husband Nadesalingam Murugappan (Nades) and their two Australian-born daughters, four and two years old, got on a plane and returned to the air in Colombo, Sri Lanka.

In the last hours of the night, however, Judge Heather gave Riley an order to block the movement while their plane was in the air.

Their plane landed in Darwin just before 3 o'clock in the morning, with moving images accompanying the family from the plane, in a waiting van.

However, the fight is by no means over, with the order until Friday afternoon to Friday and a hearing scheduled at 10:00 am in the Melbourne Register of the Federal Circuit Court.

Interior Minister Peter Dutton said that while the government is expected to go through the judicial process, the family will still be deported.

"This case has been going on for a long time … it has been investigated by the Magistrates Court, reviewed by the Magistrates Court, revised by the Federal Court, by the full Federal Court, by the High Court," Mr. Dutton told Channel Nine & # 39; s Show today.

Dutton said the family came to Australia by boat and made it clear that they were not allowed to stay & # 39 ;.

& # 39; I would like the family to accept that they are not refugees, they do not owe any protection from our country, & # 39; he said.

& # 39; We have been clear and consistent in the reports that we do not want people to settle down by boat. & # 39;

Despite the fact that he has two Australian-born daughters, Kopika and Tharunicaa, Mr. Dutton maintains that the family knew they would have to leave the country.

Daily Mail Australia understands that the Friday hearing will consider whether the minister's office has made the right decision in his decision not to allow a claim for protection on behalf of the two-year-old Tharunicaa.

Supporters told Daily Mail Australia that the & # 39; family is absolutely exhausted, yet so relieved to still be here with a fighting opportunity & # 39 ;.

Supporters gather in Sydney and Melbourne to show their support, and others encouraged to call Prime Minister Scott Morrison's office.

Angela Fredericks, who is behind the campaign to keep the family in Australia, said she is not sure what will happen to them now.

& # 39; I would dare say they would be escorted from the plane, then I would say they would be back in a detention center, so I don't know if they will be flown back to Melbourne, & # 39; she said.

Family friend Simone Cameron, who taught Nadesalingam English, told the Courier Mail that the family & # 39; generous & # 39; and & # 39; kind-hearted & # 39; and was loved by their local community in Biloela, Queensland.

& # 39; We are so lucky in Australia and when people seek asylum, we have to help them. They arrived in Biolela in search of peace and security – they didn't ask much, & she said.

The family had lived in Biloela, a rural town in central Queensland, for four years and worked on a temporary bridging visa before it expired in March 2018.

They have been detained in a detention center in Melbourne since March 2018, after being taken out of their homes during a raid before dawn.

The High Court then refused their final bid to remain in Australia in May 2018.

Last week, the family discovered that their efforts to stay in the country had been rejected, with supporters calling on the federal immigration minister to reconsider.

Proponents previously said they feared that the family would be in danger if it were sent back to Sri Lanka because of family ties in the past with the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam.

Previously the family had been forced into two vans from the detention center and taken to Melbourne airport.

& # 39; I (got) a video call and their entire unit is surrounded by about twenty guards, Priya just sat in a chair and (border guards) told them they were being deported tonight & # 39 ;, family friend Simone Cameron told the ABC at the time.

& # 39; Priya reports that some guards have been rough and aggressive to her that she cannot feel any of her shoulders.

& # 39; She asked for the chance to go and change her clothes and they refused. & # 39;

Mrs. Cameron said the situation was incredibly traumatic for the family, which has a history of trauma.

More than 70 supporters of the family rushed to Melbourne airport and shouted & # 39; let them stay & # 39; on the side of the tarmac as they watched the family's charter plane take off.

They held up plates with the text & # 39; free the Tamil refugees. End of mandatory custody & # 39 ;.

& # 39; There are approximately 30 to 40 demonstrators gathered behind the fence. We have a view of the Skytraders plane, & said Change.org campaign director Nic Holas of the airport protest.

& # 39; We understand that Priya and her family have been put in the pendant.

& # 39; This is an informal group. These are just Australians and we are trying to prevent this family from being deported. & # 39;

It was not just demonstrators at the airport who insisted that the family be allowed to stay in Australia, with more than 200,000 Australians signing an online petition from Change.org.

Video posted on Facebook showed that Nadesalingam was in a charter plane with his two-year-old daughter Tharunicaa on his lap and the four-year-old daughter Kopika next to him.

Priya is supposed to be divorced on Thursday at 7.30 p.m. before being reunited at the airport before their flight.

The immigration ministry had previously stated that the family's case had been assessed for many years.
