From Morning Report, 8:15 am on 1 November 2018

Immigration Minister Iain Lees-Galloway has been forced into reviewing his decision to grant residency to Jan Antolik, also known as Karel Sroubek. The National Party is calling for the Minister's head. But why was nothing done when Antolik was charged while National was in government? Guyon Espiner talks to National leader Simon Bridges.
