Migrants deported using immigration data modelling pilot

From Morning Report, 7:47 am on 6 April 2018

Immigration New Zealand says 'high priority' migrants have been deported as a result of a data modelling pilot, which some have labelled racist. As we reported yesterday, the pilot in use for the past 18 months analyses the age, gender and ethnicity of overstayers to identify groups likely to run up hospital costs or commit crime. Some are calling it racial profiling and want it scrapped. Sally Murphy reports.
