Recently the Norwegian government announced that Somalis will be deported, but now it seems there are plans to replace them with other asylum seekers.
While the Eastern European EU member states are fighting hard against EU's redistribution program for asylum seekers who have come to Italy and Greece, the Parliament last year adopted a proposal that Norway would voluntarily accept 1,500 of the 120,000 people covered by the EU's distribution plan during 2016 and 2017.
This week, the first of them are flown from Italy to Norway, more precisely to the reception center in Råde in Østfold, reports NRK.
UDI's Elisabeth Qvam, confirms that the first 20 of a total of 1,500 asylum seekers will be flown to Norway from Italy this week.
Those who are flown in now are Eritreans.
Where EU member states attempt to pour sand in the gears to avoid a precedent that can be applied to a much larger demographic wave than 120,000 people, non-EU member Norway is among the most generous per capita.
Now it is up to the Norwegian authorities to decide on the asylum applications:
Italian authorities have sent the documents of relevant asylum seekers. UDI considers these from the individual's criteria. Some of those who come may already have family in Norway.
- It's not so that we send people from Immigration (to Italy) and select them, says Qvam.
In a situation where the flow of migrants has been high on the agenda, and where the Norwegian ship Siem Pilot (pictured) operates like a ferry for asylum seekers between Libya and Italy - and thus assisting human smugglers, one might think this would bring about a certain media interest beyond NRK's local coverage.
But the NTB announcement about the matter that went out Tuesday morning, is only published in a few newspapers.
It is as if the politically correct journalism wants to put a lid on the subject of asylum seekers now that the irregular influx via land is reduced. And therefore the new regular influx of asylum seekers, who are flown in, is going to continue for a long time without any media coverage. The long term consequences will eventually come, however, as Norway's wealth is estimated to run out in just 27 years, when the gigantic Oil Fund, given today's spending, goes empty.
