In the news

In 2019, a compliance officer at Hamilton Immigration New Zealand, who was also a Hamilton city councillor, was found to have made controversial remarks about refugees in Europe, which some people thought were racist.

He did clarify later that he had directed his comments at those responsible for the terrorist attacks in France. He had to resign from his position at INZ as a result.
