More Than Half Norwegians Want to End Muslim Immigration
More and more Norwegians are dissatisfied with the integration policy, and 53.7 percent of respondents in a survey will close the borders to immigrants.
More and more people are skeptical about immigration to Norway, the Integration Barometer 2010 , which TNS Gallup conducted for Integration and Diversity (IMDi), writes Aftenposten. Of the respondents 53.7 per cent said that the statement “We should not let more immigrants in Norway “fits very or fairly well with their own opinion. In 2005, when the survey was conducted for the first time, 45.8 percent of respondents said the same thing. While 48.7 per cent believe that the integration is fairly or very poor, there is an increase of 12 percent since 2005.
No to the police hijab Eight out of ten respondents believe that immigrants should demonstrate their Norwegian language skills through a language test before they are allowed to become Norwegian citizens. Otherwise, the survey shows that opposition to the use of hijab among women in police uniform is massive in Norway. Over 80 percent of respondents said no to this, and 3.3 percent are “very negative” to the hijab on the police.
As for Children, Equality and Social Inclusion most Norwegians believe that the study from the Directorate is not telling the whole story. - It is important to take people’s views seriously, but it is also important to emphasize that all documentation, research and statistics show that the integration is progressing, says political advisor Line Gaare Paulsen. - Norway is a tolerant society Akhenaten De Leon, leader of the Organization against Public Discrimination, says to Aftenposten that it is appropriate to question whether Norway is able to protect those who come to the country in a good way. - I am not surprised that so many are skeptical. Norway has undergone major upheaval in recent years. It has mainly gone well and I think Norway is basically a tolerant society. To me it seems natural that the Norwegians asked whether the society can tolerate the same trend, said De Leon. - Unlimited immigration is nevertheless not an end in itself. We must be sure that we have the capacity to protect those who come, he continued.
