At present, the majority of the migrants who have had their asylum applications rejected and are considered a flight risk are kept at the Trandum detention centre.
The facility has been widely criticised as it was claimed it was “worse than jail”.
In October last year, Immigration Minister Sylvi Listhaug forced to address the claims was accused of failing the migrants housed at the closed centre.
Hitting back, she said it was the asylum-seekers' own actions that had landed them at Trandum, in Oslo, by either being a flight risk if their application was denied or for withholding information from the authorities.
The whole point of placing families and others with denied asylum at Trandum is so they don’t disappear,” Ms Listhaug said.
“Trandum is an important tool to maintain a strict, but fair immigration policy. I did not cause the families’ situation. It is their own responsibility.
“There is even a support apparatus which helps migrants who have had their asylum applicants denied to get money for a voluntary return. Despite this, some chose to not adhere to this and so they are forcibly deported.”
It comes as the Norwegian government’s vow to crackdown on illegal immigrants resulted in a record number of deportations in 2016 as more than 7,000 migrants were returned to their home countries.
State Secretary Fabian Stang said: “This is a figure that shows that there have been many who do not have a legitimate claim to asylum who have stayed here and failed to leave the country, and that’s why it is necessary for the police to do the work they have done throughout the year.”
