Now Labour has joined NZ First in saying we have too many migrants, I want to know how they plan to stop Aussies moving here, considering we have a mutual right to work and live in each other’s countries. Will they rip up CER?
Whale points out that Labour are now backing off their pledge to reduce net migration to under 15,000. Mainly because it is impossible. Residency visas are actually down on 2008. You can not stop Kiwis returning home or Aussies moving here – and nor should we.
It’s amusing that just a year ago Labour was claiming too many Kiwis are leaving NZ. Now they’re effectively complaining too many are staying on!
