If we can’t keep fraudulent students out, what hope do we have of detecting Jihadis among “refugees”?

Fakers to the left of us, fakers to right…we are stuck in the middle.

Would-be students from India are lying on their immigration applications, misrepresenting their financial situation in order to get student visas.

A high number of fraudulent applications have been received at Immigration New Zealand’s India office from people applying for student visas.

Some people were misrepresenting their financial situation in order to get student visas, the office’s November newsletter about the student market said.

Students have to prove they have enough money while studying in order for their visa to be approved.   

Indian students who arrived with too little money were at risk of exploitation that could harm the reputation of New Zealand as an education destination for foreign students.

A surge in applications for student visas in October was also noted, as people raced to beat tighter rules on English language testing.

If we can’t detect bullshitting fake students then how the hell are we ever going to stop jihadis coming here.

Oh I know…the UN are vetting them.

The same UN who allows its schools and hospitals to be used as bases for terrorist activities.

But don’t worry…Michael Woodhouse is onto it.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
