TAXPAYERS BEAR BRUNT OF RECORD IMMIGRATION
Taxpayers are being bled dry from National’s open door immigration which keeps breaking records.
“There aren’t enough houses in Auckland for everyone but we had an inflow of 128,000 coming in, and over half will settle in Auckland, says New Zealand First Leader and Northland Member of Parliament Rt Hon Winston Peters.
“They’ll need the infrastructure for a city the size of Rotorua to support them – but it’s not being built.
“The net gain was 71,300 people – that’s 1370 people a week, most looking for a job and a house to rent or own that the government has made no preparations for.
“They’ll want a GP and they’ll turn up at hospital emergency departments for the free care – that the government has not prepared for.
“Only this morning a caller to Radio Live told of going for a job in Christchurch. The employer asked the painter why would he employ him when he could take on two Malaysians for the same price?
“Migrants are undermining Kiwi workers, who should not have to compete with Third World wages and conditions.
“The taxpayer is paying for emergency housing, for hospital care and all other public services that immigrants get free and will have to pay for schools, roads, hospitals and the like that will be needed as the population nears 5 million).
“The cost of mindless, unfocused mass immigration is a drain on this country and no amount of apologists can undermine these facts,” says Mr Peters.
