Susan Devoy campaigns for Helen – calls for even more refugees

Despite an apparent housing crisis we are also, apparently, able to take more refugees.

Even Susan Devoy, a woman who ignores hate crimes against Israelis and poofs, and instead finds herself in solidarity with Muslims, thinks we need to take more refugees.

Race Relations Commissioner Dame Susan Devoy says New Zealand should take more refugees to show it’s deserving of its seat at the United Nations Security Council.

The Government announced on Monday that it would up New Zealand’s annual refugee quota from 750 to 1000 from 2018 — the first time the quota’s been changed in close to 30 years.

But that fell short of the expectations of opposition parties and refugee advocates, who’ve been calling for the quota to be doubled to 1500.  

On Friday, Dame Susan released a statement on the eve of UN Refugee Day suggesting New Zealand could raise its overall intake through programs outside the official quota.

“This is an opportunity for our Government to demonstrate why we deserve to be sitting on the UN Security Council and whether we have the right to chair the UNHCR annual tripartite consultations on resettlement for the next year.”

She said this week’s announcement was a step in the right direction but it was a very small, very safe step that took New Zealand 30 years to take.

I think we need to be safe, given what is happening in the world.

Where do these noddies get their numbers from? I’m sure if you asked the man on the street they’d like a nice round number of refugees…like zero.

“When our grandchildren ask us what we did when the world faced its worst humanitarian crisis in history: we should be able to tell them we did things that made us feel proud to be New Zealanders.”

When my grandchildren ask what we did about it I’ll reply that when Israel was under terrorist attack this country backed the terrorists. When Islamic terrorists attacked innocents in Paris, and Orlando and many other countries, we had appeasers like Susan Devoy who cuddled the terrorists and held vigils for Muslims and not their victims.

Emotional blackmail from appeasers like Devoy won’t work.
