BBC News and the word 'controversial'

The BBC here report on a restriction on immigration in Australia and use the word 'controversial' to describe the policy:
'The Australian parliament has approved changes to immigration laws that include reintroducing controversial temporary visas for refugees.'
Oddly Barack Hussein Obama's pro immigration policies are not described as 'controversial'. 

It seems that 'controversial' policies are only ones that the BBC disapproves of.
