Despite the howls of outrage he’s actually right

There are howls of outrage over comments by Kanwaljit Singh Bakshi about students with dodgy visas.

Indian students facing deportation claim they are being treated unfairly by the Government, and are planning to protest.

The students allege their India-based agents used fake documents to obtain their student visas.

Migrant Workers Association spokeswoman Anu Kaloti says National MP Kanwaljit Singh Bakshi likened the students to faulty fridges from China during a radio interview.

“If New Zealand imports fridges from China for example, and those fridges are faulty, New Zealand sends them back to China. Hello, we are talking about real people here – we cannot compare them to items like fridges.”  

Ms Kaloti says they hope to send a message to the Government by holding a protest on Monday evening.

“Perhaps through this peaceful protest we can make some progress in a positive direction for the students.”

The protest will be held outside a meeting that’s being attended by Bill English and National MP Dr Parmjeet Parmar at the Lynfield Community Centre in Auckland.

Kanwaljit Singh Bakshi is actually right. If the visas are fraudulent then back they go.

If they aren’t sent back then our immigration policy is essentially null and void. We will have hordes of people turning up with false documentation and then when faced with extradition they will claim its unfair because they are people.

I feel sorry for those duped, but rules and law trump hurt feelings.
