Some 5,198 foreign citizens were expelled from the country in 2013, an increase of 31 percent since 2012, when 3,958 people were deported.
“It is the highest number we’ve had ever,” Frode Forfang, head of the Directorate of Immigration (UDI), told NRK. “We believe that one reason for the increase is that the police have become more conscious of using deportation as a tool to fight crime.”
Curious - the police have the power to deport someone?
Nigerian citizens topped the list of those expelled for committing crimes, with 232 citizens expelled as a punishment in 2013, followed by Afghan citizens with 136 expelled as a punishment, and 76 Moroccans expelled as a punishment.
Afghan citizens topped the list of those expelled for violating the Immigration Act, with 380 expelled for this reason, followed by Iraqi citizens, 234 were expelled for violating the act.
Good for Norway! I think the UK should consider doing the same.

Norway's Expulsion of Muslim criminals criticized by British journalist
A British journalist writing in the Guardian newspaper has torn into the Norwegians, accusing them of being “fearful of outsiders”, harbouring a “disturbing Islamophobic subculture”, and polluting the world with their oil exports.
“Ask the Danes, and they will tell you that the Norwegians are the most insular and xenophobic of all the Scandinavians,” he writes. “And it is true that since they came into a bit of money in the 1970s the Norwegians have become increasingly Scrooge-like, hoarding their gold, fearful of outsiders.”
(Norwegians aren’t xenophobic, they are Muslimphobic because of the soaring crime and rape rates thanks to Muslim immigrants). See the startling statistics.
The country has yet to come to come to terms with the ethics of being a major oil exporter in an age of global warming, he adds, saying they act like “the dealer who never touches his own supply”, going green domestically, while pumping out oil for the rest of us.
