Immigration Invasion Means Disaster for Many Kiwis

Immigration Invasion Means Disaster for Many Kiwis


Speaking to a Hutt Valley Grey Power meeting this morning, the Rt Hon Winston Peters accused the Government of “betraying New Zealanders” and any chance of improving housing and infrastructure in Auckland, with an immigration policy that will bring in net 41,000 migrants a year.

“Even Treasury has warned of the extra demand, inflationary pressure and higher interest rates from such a policy.

“There are serious concerns in New Zealand that so many areas of critical under investment are being totally ignored whilst the doors are thrown open even wider to mass immigration.

“What National plans is to bring in more than the population of Wanganui every year, the mass majority of whom will go to Auckland, choking the already overloaded system, driving wages down even further with artificial competition for employment and resources.

“No government has the right to sell its people out like this. The National Party is trading away our future and our birthright, along with our land and our assets.

“History will condemn this Government because it has inflicted the cynical values of spiritually and morally bankrupt Wall Street traders on what was once the greatest country on earth.

“Don’t blame the immigrants but the silly politicians who enable all of this to happen.

“In September New Zealanders will have their last chance to stop this unfocused invasion where the National Party, at enormous cost to New Zealand people, plays host,” said Mr Peters.
