More migrants?

Written by  Milking It

OPINION: Latest data on immigration from Statistics New Zealand shows migrant arrival numbers plummeted early last year and we all know the reason - Covid.

But what it also shows is that immigration was well controlled during the years National was in power. After Labour came into power towards the end of 2017, migrant arrivals shot up.

National has been accused of "rampant immigration". But the Stats NZ graphs shows this isn't true.

This is of interest to primary industries that are short of workers.

With Labour allowing record number of migrants in, Milking It wonders why are they so reluctant to let in sufficient numbers of skilled RSE workers for our ag sector which is crying out for additional help?
