Protesters in Melbourne chanting "Let them stay" have called on the Australian Government to save a Tamil asylum seeker family from deportation.

Priya and Nades and their two Australian-born daughters have been held in a Melbourne detention centre since March 2018 after being taken from their Biloela home during a pre-dawn raid.

Last week the family received news that their last-ditch efforts to stay in the country were rejected.

The Department of Immigration claims the family's case has been assessed over many years.
