We house in New Zealand's prisons far too many foreign nationals. At 90K a year, this money should be spent on New Zealanders regardless of their criminal status.
Any serious offending should have the foreign national striped of their right of abode/residency and on occasions citizenship and removed to their country of origin.
Removing the individual in this instance will be paramount to punishing them and should the Authorities in the receiving nation feel obliged to impose sanction them upon arrival, so be it.
This policy would go some way to alleviating our current muster crisis and provide notable savings to the government and New Zealand.
