Why do we care?
Immigration is a process that is truly life changing.
People come to our country to achieve the New Zealand dream. Work hard, become part of a community and live a prosperous life. Policy around immigration has a unique ability to impact on the livelihoods of people and our community. That’s why it is so important to have a measured and balanced discussion about immigration, a discussion that is free from prejudice and stereotypes.
We want to see an immigration policy that allows us to retain our open country to the world as well as protect the livelihoods of our citizens and residents. Through this policy, we can secure a better future for all of us.
Our Immigration Policy rests on the principles of tolerance and dignity. We believe that immigration can be harnessed to create positive outcomes for New Zealand society economically, culturally and socially. We believe that our immigration system must be data-driven, employment focused and embrace family reunification.
UnitedFuture’s immigration policy:
- Establish a 10 year population strategy
- Introduce an employment sponsor fast track to residency
- Strengthen family reunification
- Provide additional migrant support
