Thousands beg Australia not to deport autistic Filipino boy

SYDNEY (AFP) - The mother of an autistic Filipino boy whom she says faces deportation because he would be a burden to the Australian taxpayer presented a petition on Monday signed by tens of thousands of people begging authorities to let him stay.

Tyrone Sevilla, 10, arrived in Australia from the Philippines legally as a two-year-old with his mother Maria Sevilla, now a registered nurse in a Queensland hospital.

But he was diagnosed with autism in 2008, a condition the Migration Review Tribunal said posed a "significant cost" to the Australian community in denying the family a visa extension, his mother told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC).

Maria Sevilla, who said she pays tax and has private health insurance, is on a work visa, which expired on Monday.
