Sending foreign ratbags home…just like the Aussies do

I can’t hardly wait for Labour to be outraged over this and cuddle these foreign criminals.

More than 400 people have been deported for a criminal offence in the past five years – the majority from Samoa, China and Tonga – with those on home detention likely sent home before their time is up.

Data released by Immigration New Zealand under the Official Information Act revealed 415 were deported in the time period between the start of 2011 and September 8 this year.

Much of it confirms what many already suspected: that Clinton’s view on banking regulations differs depending on who she’s meeting with – bankers or voters – and she has a far too cosy relationship with mainstream media and journalists.

Some say the revelations are valuable information for voters. Others have accused Russia of being behind the hack and argue WikiLeaks is aiding foreign interference in the elections. Julian Assange’s haven, Ecuador, has recently pulled the plug on his internet usage, claiming that interference with other countries’ electoral processes is against their policies.

Putting aside the agendas of all the players involved, one institution comes out undeniably sullied by the publication of the emails: the US news media. While some of the emails released presented typical behaviours, with the Clinton campaign reaching out to particular publications with stories, others are more problematic.
