Immigration is central to many parts of New Zealand’s culture, economy, and future prospects. New Conservative believes that there is a balance to be struck between the important benefits that immigration brings and the wellbeing of those who already call New Zealand “home.” We believe that those who choose to immigrate should embrace New Zealand's culture and not try and change it.
New Conservative will ensure there is no acceptance or allowance of Sharia Law, in any expression, as well as any non-constitutional jurisdictional authority, in New Zealand.
The key New Conservative immigration policy is “Net Zero Immigration”. This would be for a period determined by the time taken to ease housing demand, which could be as little as 12 months (student visas and returning New Zealanders excluded). Long term immigration policy must be based on which occupations will be available/necessary in the future.
Prioritising immigrants who can add to our economy and not depend on it.
Working with NZ based non-governmental organisations operating in troubled zones to identify genuine refugees who are more closely aligned with our nation’s values, and fill our refugee quota with these people, rather than accepting the United Nations allotment.
