From Checkpoint, 6:23 pm on 6 April 2021

While the trans Tasman bubble has been good news for many.. group of migrants took to the steps of Parliament today - calling on the government to allow their families into the country.

Many have had requests for border exemptions turned down on numerous occasions - with one person rejected 16 times.

The government says it's because the borders closed - despite allowing sports teams and performers like the Wiggles in.

Harry Lock was at the protest.
