Govt turning some migrants away at the border

From Morning Report, 6:16 am on 30 August 2023

The government has started turning migrants away at the border when they have visas tied to dodgy employers.

Ten people have been stopped at the New Zealand border in the last two weeks, while 193 others have been told not to travel to Aotearoa.

It comes after several reports of migrants living in cramped conditions with little or none of the work promised by employers.

Employment advocate May Moncur spoke to Ingrid Hipkiss.
