Furthermore he said that he wanted to limit the number of foreigners in school classes. Immigrants who did not want to integrate, should be expelled, Strache said.
It was necessary to have preparation classes to learn the German language otherwise it would not be possible to follow regular lessons, he claimed.
Strache also said that the FPÖ had been proposing such measures for years, such as those which the independent expert for the panel on integration had suggested on Monday.
The FPÖ had called for a limit of foreign pupils of 30 percent in each classroom in the 1990's, Strache added.
However, it was important to discuss measures for the education sector "seriously and objectively", Strache said.
Nevertheless he criticised Foreign and Integration Minister Sebastian Kurz of the conservative Austrian People's Party (ÖVP) saying he was not really determined to change something.
Kurz's proposal to promote more measures for immigrants from EU countries was "obfuscation" according to Strache.
There were no problems to overcome language barriers for people from the same cultural area, whereas problems still remain with immigrants from Turkey, he said.
