From Morning Report, 8:46 am on 27 November 2017

A Sri Lankan family facing deportation are being backed by a local MP and Queenstown locals as they lobby the Government in a last-minute bid to stay. The family moved to New Zealand eight years ago, but after the mother, Dinesha, was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis her visa was cancelled. Yesterday, hundreds marched through Queenstown to support them.
