Minister Lees-Galloway and Minister Robertson: Make Community Sponsorship permanent
Right now, we have the opportunity to build a more inclusive and welcoming Aotearoa. The Government is making a crucial decision on whether to make the Community Sponsorship of Refugees programme permanent.
There is a small window of time to influence this decision.
The will is here – people and organisations are putting their hands up to sponsor newcomers. Kiwis want to show the world what a compassionate and caring country we are by welcoming more refugees into our communities. This is the Government’s chance to enable everyday heroes to do something amazing by simply giving them the chance.
Call on the Ministers of Immigration and Finance to make Community Sponsorship of Refugees permanent.
