The Green Party have welcomed the Government’s decision to increase the refugee quota to 1500 annually, meaning more families, women and children fleeing war and persecution will have a safe place to call home.
Green Co-leader Marama Davidson, said:

“We are a kind, compassionate and safe country. New Zealanders want to help and we can.
