Deport Rioters Now: Peters
New Zealand First leader Winston Peters has called on the Immigration Minister to order the immediate deportation of the ten Iraquis and Iranians involved in Sunday’s riot at Whangaparaoa camp.
“It appears that there has been no proper screening of these people and they should be sent packing forthwith, Mr Peters said.
“While we are happy to provide a haven for genuine refugees It has become obvious that New Zealand has gained the unhappy reputation of being the dumping ground for some of the undesirables of the Middle East and Asia. We have enough of our own social problems without importing any more.
“To make matters worse the New Zealand taxpayer is paying not just for the prosecution of these rioters but for their defence as well. New Zealanders have no idea who this Government is welcoming into our country or what these people are like” said Mr Peters.
