Progress Party Says No to Refugees

Tommy Bjellås proposed to refuse the refugees in Eigersund during the Health and Human Services Committee meeting on Tuesday night. He got support from his party member Kjell Fredriksen. The majority of the committee believes that the municipality should say yes to accept 20 refugees in 2011.

Olaug Nordeide (Høyre- Conservative Party) also suggested that the municipality should say no to unaccompanied minor refugees. The Conservatives and Progress Party voted for, but it was not enough to get a majority.

The municipal council will make the final decision on the proposal. When the question was handled in culture and upbringing Committee, FRP had said yes to refugees.
