4000 illegal immigrants to be expelled from Norway

Norway Post repsorts that Justice Minister Knut Storberget says the Norwegian Government will this year expel more than 4000 persons who are staying in Norway illegally.

This is 1000 higher than the number sent out of the country last year.

The Justice Minister (photo) says it is necessary to transport illegal immigrants out of the country more quickly, in order to stem the record influx of asylum seekers to Norway. “It just shows how important and correct it is to tighten the policy governing who will be permitted to stay,” Storberget says.

The National Police and the 27 Police Districts in Norway are responsible for a range of tasks in the field of immigration, both in asylum cases and in other cases. Important tasks are the receipt and processing of some residence cases, registration and identity checks in asylum cases, border control and work against illegal immigration and illegal residence.

The Police also handle the deportation of asylum seekers who have had their applications rejected, and other illegal aliens, writes the Directorate of Immigration (UDI) on its website

The Police are placed under the Ministry of Justice and the Police (JD).
