Immigration & other issues

22 posts in this topic

With recent talk of some in positions of control encouraging an extra 105,000 Indians into NZ, why has nothing been discussed publically on how this will impact on our Health Systems, ACC & WINZ ?

 

We all well know Auckland & other parts of NZ have housing issues for our NZ born locals, issues with roading & talking of introducing " tolls" or extra on our " rates" but wouldn't it be more sensible & cost effective for our Nation to just stop such a vast number of immigrants that will never get employment & add to NZ's already existing problems entering our country in the first place?

Interestingly Al Jazeera TV have this week been showing a report on how India want the return of Indian citizens that have moved overseas with monies they obtained through dodging & not paying taxes in India. 

 

How many on the list of "Wanted persons" have purchased property & other assets & are living in NZ?

 

At a guess there will be more than a handful of them.

Another aspect of great concern that was pointed out if this situation does happen is " Will NZ have to bend over & increase the number of Indians in our Police force?"

 

That it itself is of grave concern for all as we well know what some are capable of.

 

It is also to be mentioned here that a large number of murders in NZ are now committed by new immigrants against members of their own race.

I have no problem at all with Indians immigrating to NZ. Hard working, like their cricket, generally easy going and more than happy to continue that great NZ institution - The NZ corner Dairy. I think they are an excellent fit, unlike some other ethnicities, who to my mind struggle with the NZ way of living and aren't such a good fit.

Some reading to ponder on & become maybe better informed.

 

It would be interestimg to know how many indians owning land or living in NZ have avoided paying taxes either in there own country or that of NZ.

 

We suspect there is more than a few.

 

The recent power cut in Auckland had a few claim that they had lost considerable takings in there businesses, how much of there past takings that they claim to have lost for that event  has ever been disclosed, or not disclosed to IRD previously?

 

Serious questions need to be asked of some & where applicable charges laid & if non compliance to NZ laws have occured these people should be deported.

Indian restaurant chain fined $66,000

NZ Newswire â€“ Wed, Nov 26, 2014 1:18 PM NZDT

 

https://nz.finance.yahoo.com/news/indian-restaurant-chain-fined-66-001820869.html

 

 

A popular Auckland Indian restaurant chain has been told to pay up $66,000 for failing to keep proper employment records.

But it's not just an administrative mistake - it means staff are almost certainly missing out on their entitlements, the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment says.

In a decision released on Wednesday, the Employment Relations Authority told 11 Masala restaurants to cough up $6000 each for not providing employment records to MBIE.

The companies failed to provide wage and time records, holiday and leave records and employment agreements for about 100 staff.

Norwegians are fed up with also seeing mosques popping up everywhere, something we no longer see with ordinary old churches in may parts of the world.

 

Interestingly they to have had them built in close proxmitiy to international airports just like in parts of NZ. Are these races trying to make a stamp on our territories?

 

Norwegians are also sick to death of them arriving in there country and taking away all there hard earned taxes they have paid to pay for these people as they go straight onto on welfare without  ever having worked there a day.

 

it's time to stop all this nonsense worldwide.

 

Why do they leave there own countries in the first place?

 

Is the living there really that bad as they sure slam the way Westerners treat them?

We understand that Laura Singh who went "missing" recently from her home in Greenlane, Auckland was indeed abducted by her former partner that so happens to be of Indian decent.

 

There has also been other dreadful cases of same race murders which are becomming more and more to common in NZ.

 

Not a good look for our countries image.

I don't think any potential tourists to NZ would give a toss about people called Singh's domestic issues. And if these minority types are killing each other and not the general populace, then.....yeah nah who cares?

Dc9, costs us $90k a year to keep these pricks in Her Majesty's Grey Bar, best not to have them here in the first place.

That's not forgetting all the associated costs to police, crown law, medical professionals etc along the way and most importantly to those that have been harmed by them.

Has anyone else observed the link between these two topics and the timing?

 

One plus one equals two doesn't it?

 

Money laundering and taking money offshore to another country.

 

What steps have various countries where this money is been taken offshore to undertaken, to ensure it has been legitimately obtained in the first place?

 

How much of it has been from profiterring off fake labelled goods - Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Gucci, Rolex, etc, how much of it is from laundered money etc?

 

What we find interesting and would like to know is, what ethnic origin are selling the most properties to there own?

 

Not only is it the increasing number of Chinese people, but also Indians who live more than is permitted by the law in a dwelling and get away with it - it is overcrowding and like the Asians they don't care if it's two or 4 to a room or studio.

 

Some in the property sector, including Property Managers/ Agents need a kick up the backside for allowing this to occur in the first place.

 

Maybe we need a dob in hotline to stop this carry on.

Global anti-money laundering meeting held in Auckland

Monday, 13 July 2015, 9:44 am
Press Release: New Zealand Government

Hon Amy Adams
Minister of Justice

13 July 2015

Global anti-money laundering meeting held in Auckland

New Zealand has a key role to play in global efforts to combat money laundering and counter the financing of terrorism, Justice Minister Amy Adams said at the opening of the Asia Pacific Group on Money Laundering in Auckland today.

About 360 delegates from around the world are taking part in the international gathering, including 41 member countries from the Asia-Pacific region and international organisations such as the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund and the United Nations.

“New Zealand is taking a leading role in global efforts to tackle money laundering and terrorist financing, and our commitment is further demonstrated as host and co-chair of the meeting,” says Ms Adams.

“This meeting is an opportunity for us to share our knowledge and ideas with other countries, as well as learn about what more we can do to improve our compliance with international obligations and best practices.”

“Money laundering is an insidious crime, and it’s becoming more challenging to detect, with international criminal networks increasingly using modern technologies and communications,” says Ms Adams.

Ms Adams says the Government has already taken steps to strengthen New Zealand’s anti-money laundering and countering financing of terrorism laws in an effort to crack down on these crimes and improve our compliance with international obligations and best practices.

 

Recent Government reforms include the Anti-Money Laundering and Countering Financing of Terrorism Act, which helps authorities to better detect and deter money laundering and the financing of terrorism.

The Organised Crime and Anti-corruption Legislation Bill, which is currently before Parliament, will also help authorities tackle money laundering and other related illicit activities including bribery and drug-related crime.

Auckland's property crisis: Foreigners should build, not buy - economist

9:51 AM Monday Jul 13, 2015
 
It comes amid warnings that rich Chinese investors will be looking to take their money out of China's turbulent stock market and invest it in property overseas.
 
....

 

Twyford questioned why there are 22,000 empty houses in the Auckland region and Alexander also raised that issue.

 

"Many Chinese who buy properties never, or rarely, occupy them. They sit empty. This applies even to newly built apartments sold to Chinese buyers. Chinese simply want an asset away from any control by the CCP," Alexander said.

Send them all back to where they came from, we don't need anymore problems with corrupt people in our midst.

Looking forward to the day they all get screened properly for pre-existing health ailments that they fail to disclose and then suddenly have when they are in New Zealand along with all their extended families.

We also have the proposed Smokefree NZ in less than 10 years, 2025, so best to stamp these issues out whilst we can.

 

Time running out for Indian student victims of visa fraud - lawyer

 

http://www.voxy.co.nz/national/5/255047

Monday, 20 June, 2016 - 18:45

Leading New Zealand immigration lawyer Alastair McClymont is calling for more rigorous screening of overseas education agents by New Zealand private education institutions as hundreds of Indian students currently studying here are at risk of imminent deportation.

Following closer investigation of the visa application documents prepared on the students’ behalf by unlicensed education agents in India, Immigration NZ has sent deportation liability notices to a number of foreign students.

The Indian education agents are authorised by private NZ education institutions to supply students for their schools and they collect 15% or around $2500 commission on average per student. "Questions must be asked about the robustness of the processes relating to the selection of these agents by these schools," says Mr McClymont, whose firm is acting for a number of these at-risk students.

Mr McClymont says that the NZ schools and NZQA need to be more stringent in their approach. The agents should be required to give consent for NZ schools to undertake character checks with Immigration NZ before signing them up. NZQA which sets the standards for the courses could also reduce the number of scams by insisting that all education agents used by NZ private education institutions must be licensed.

"Almost all of the fraud relates to fake bank loan documents," says Mr McClymont.

"My understanding is that Immigration NZ readily acknowledges the fraud is generated by unlicensed education agents in India and that Indian banks are complicit in the fraud."

He says that the main purpose of the documents is to show that the student’s family has access to funds to pay the school fees. "It’s also important to note that the fees are actually paid after the visa is approved and the students do bring money with them.

"The Indian education agents took these shortcuts because many Indians find it difficult to prove where they sourced their money as they don’t all use banks. The education agents perpetrating these scams need to be put out of business before they can ruin the lives of any more young people."

McClymont’s clients deny any knowledge of the fake bank documents prepared on their behalf by these agents. They insist they never applied for the loans for which they are accused of faking documentation.

Student visa applicants are required by Immigration NZ to provide proof that they have enough money for living costs while studying and living in New Zealand. They also need to prove they have a return airline ticket to their home country or proof that they have enough money to buy one.

"Most students at risk of deportation are doing well in class, they have brought funds with them into NZ to support their stay and they are all attending classes," says Mr McClymont. "Their families have often made very big sacrifices to send them here to study. If their sons or daughters are deported before they have had a chance to gain their qualifications, they will have no way to recover their money and their sacrifice will have been for nothing. They may not have sufficient funds to continue their son or daughter’s education elsewhere."

- FACTS

Student visas are usually granted for two years of study. Few foreign students study for just one year. The terms of their visa also allow them to work for a maximum of 20 hours per week.

Following graduation the students are eligible to apply for a Post-Study Work Visa (Open) that allows them to find a job relevant to their new qualification. It’s valid for 12 months. During this time they can work for almost any employer in New Zealand.

After the graduate has found a job relevant to their qualification they can apply for a Post-Study Work Visa (Employer-Assisted). Following this they may qualify for a New Zealand resident visa under the Skilled Migrant category.

Most of the residency visas that fall within the Skilled Migrant category have been granted to former students of our private educational institutions.

For those that may not be aware, it costs our District Health Boards $90 per hour for an interpreter, on top of the time staff have to spend trying to source one, and in places like Sudan there are at least 90 different dialects so the chances of having someone who is qualified to interpret for some is highly remote.

Is Meomy,  One Nations  NZ representative. :ph34r:

The problem with Meomy is he has not noted history. If he had, he would know that immigrants have often arrived with a bad wrap in various countries. Think Chinese to US or NZ. Italians to US or Aus. Irish to just about any country. The list is much longer, but you get the picture. All these immigrants arrived with a few bad arses and genearlly struggled against prejudice. However with the passing of time they settled in and the vast majority became solid citizens who contributed robustly to the good health of the countries they moved too.

I went to  watch a Phoenix pre season  game last night.  The Nix have a young boy of about 16 named  Suprett Singh who was outstanding and on the night was the best player on the field.

So hopefully this season we will have two Indians (Krishna and Singh) in the Nix starting line up.
