Interpreters and New Zealand
It appears that sentiment toward aiding interpreters that served foreign military organizations in Afghanistan may be waning. Many nations have very restrictive regulations on how many (if any) former Afghan interpreters can enter their countries. The United States Department of State was notorious for their fool-hardy decisions in the past. It would appear that New Zealand is having some internal political disputes on this issue as well.
