NORWAY -- Police forcibly returned 8078 immigrants in 2016, more than ever before. Immigration Minister Sylvi Listhaug is cheering. This has spared the government of hundreds of millions.
Just by Gardermoen airport the "asylum prison" Trandum is located, enclosed in barbed wire and guarded by police officers. There are more security guards than usual this day, as immigration minister Sylvi Listhaug is paying a visit.
And she is very happy.
Never before has Norway forcibly deported as many as in 2016. Police Immigration Service (PU) deported 8078 foreigners who were not allowed to stay in Norway last year. The job is ordered by the government.
- It is about fighting crime and safeguarding the population. Those who are staying illegally in Norway, we will find them and we will send them back to the country they belong to, says Listhaug to NRK.
However, the police were unable to reach Sylvi Listhaug goal of 9,000 forced returns, which Chief of Police Immigration said already a month before the final figures were ready.
