National’s hypocrisy as is galling as their opportunism. 

Migration pact will result in ‘pretty much open borders’ – Brownlee

National MP Gerry Brownlee says a new migration pact signed by New Zealand will result in “pretty much open borders”.

The Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration is an international agreement to cooperate on migration issues, such as gathering and sharing data, fighting people-trafficking and respecting migrants’ human rights.

The funniest thing about National screaming about this UN migration pact is that for 9 years open door migration was a central plank to National’s economic agenda as as to inflate the housing bubble that kept the property speculating middle classes feeling wealthy.

This is also a Party who are little more than a front for Chinese business interests.

National’s  criticism of open immigration is akin to Trump complaining about the lack of civility in political discourse.

They are flailing around trying to condemn this UN Immigration Pact now because they fear a resurgent New Conservative party sucking in alt-Right voters and disaffected National voters who are disgusted by National’s subservience to Chinese interests.

National’s hypocrisy as is galling as their opportunism.

    It’s the new year news deadzone. National can get away with any lies, hypocrisy and bullshit and the media is on holiday. With this news blackout, it’s a free for all for unchallenged propaganda.

    Labour is calling the shots on Immigration, NZFirst has no say on this matter as Labour holds the power and we have agreements with China signed by Helen Clarke which are binding.

    It is not about:
    * Open borders
    * Massive and unregulated migration
    * Any reduction in the work of Immigration New Zealand
