Pretty rough if your granny gets persecuted by the Nazis, gets declared stateless, enters the country with a declaration of being stateless and then someone says Hungary wants to claim her kids.
I’m a lot more concerned with Sam Dastyari with his Chinese connections, with political donations, particularly foreign donations and with pollies becoming lobbyists in areas they previously had an influence over.

In my opinion, you should either be born into citizenship or seek to acquire that citizenship through descent to breach the law. The constitution was written before all these other laws like the NZ laws and we shouldn’t need a referendum to sort it out.
Might also be handy if any party forced a stat dec from a candidate saying they’ve checked their status, with a chrcklist of things to tick off. We’re not going to get a referendum passed to change the constitution.
