No Wonder Australia Is Concerned About Immigrants From New Zealand
Today in the House of Representatives, Rt Hon Winston Peters, Leader of New Zealand First, took the unusual step of naming an individual whom he claimed, was not suitable for New Zealand residency.
“I took this step because I feel strongly about New Zealand being allowed to become a repository for individuals whom neighbouring countries would not accept and to highlight how inept our immigration service has become in weeding out unsuitable applicants to become New Zealanders,” said Mr Peters.
“The individual who also uses a large number of aliases, has demonstrated through his ongoing criminal offending, that he is simply not worthy of the opportunity given to settle in New Zealand, and he should be removed immediately and sent back to his country of origin, Fiji.
