Norway: 54 percent want no more immigrants
by Nicolai Sennels
A majority of Norwegians wants to close the borders to immigrants:
Of the respondents, 53.7 percent stated that the sentence "We should not let more immigrants into Norway" fits very or fairly well with their own opinion. In 2005, when the survey was conducted for the first time, 45.8 percent said the same thing. At the same time, 48.7 percent said that immigrants integration is poor or very poor, an increase of 12 percentage points since 2005. Eight out of ten respondents believe that immigrants should prove their Norwegian language skills through a language test before they are allowed to become Norwegian citizens. The survey also shows that opposition to the wearing of the 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.
