The unknown immigrants

While this week, the United States is discussing giving residence to 11 millions of illegal immigrants, a similar amnesty is unthinkable in Norway.


[the paperless] There are several reasons why it is a matter of time before hard-working "Edward" and his family, which you can read about on the previous pages, are thrown out of Norway. The Storting agrees that such as Edward, wife and children of 1 and 3 years should not stay in the kingdom.

The irregular immigrants meet in a different way in Norway than in amnesty countries such as Spain, Italy, Greece and Belgium.

Or as in the United States. The recent US debate has shown that there is great support for the proposal to grant amnesty to over 11 millions of illegal immigrants in practice. The US Senate is scheduled to knock through its resolution by Monday. In this way, millions of Latin American immigrants will be eligible for residence in the United States. Although they have sneaked into the country illegally.

It will not be a pure "blank amnesty", as the United States did in practice. . .
