The Norwegian government has announced it will be stripping the refugee status from some 1,600 Somalians and sending them back to Somalia, according to reports.

The Norwegian government noted that Somalia now has a more stable government and refugees residing in the country no longer need protection from the Norwegian state.

Despite this, liberal pro-asylum seeker groups have lashed out at the decision accusing the government of breaking international asylum rules, namely the Norwegian Organization for Asylum Seekers (NOAS).

They argue that the conditions in Somali have not changed enough to justify the removal of the migrant's refugee status.

“The Somali state can not offer effective protection,” said senior advisor to NOAS André Møkkelgjerd.

The organization is also challenging the government's decision to remove the refugee status of one Somali in court.

According to Breitbart: Norwegian State Secretary Torkil Åmland commented on the opposition to the move saying, “The fact that some organizations disagree with the strict asylum and immigration policy that this government is leading is not the same as breaking the rules.”

“The whole basis of the refugee convention is that there are only people with real protection needs that are entitled to stay. Neither the Constitution nor our international obligations mean that a foreign national is entitled to a particular type of permit in Norway,” Åmland added.

The labour minister has raised alarm bells after a report has revealed that migrants account for half of the welfare beneficiaries in Norway.

Migrants in Norway have become a strain on the country’s generous welfare system with individuals from migrant backgrounds making up half of the welfare recipients in the country.

A report from the Ragnar Frisch Centre for Economic Research released last year also revealed that the longer migrants were in Norway, the more likely they were to be dependent on state handouts and less likely to be employed.

Despite the Norwegian people overwhelmingly resisting mass migration in previous opinion polls, the European Union has pushed for the country, which is not a full member of the bloc, to take in more migrants from Africa.
