Finns Opposed to More Immigration

A survey commissioned by the newspaper Helsingin Sanomat found that the majority of Finns do not want more foreigners in the country.

About 60 percent of interviewees considered the current number of immigrants suitable, while 16 percent said there were too many foreign-born nationals in Finland.

One in five of those interviewed supported an increase in immigration.

The overwhelming majority, however, agreed that immigrants should not live apart from the rest of Finnish society in their own enclaves.

Finland's Gallup interviewed 1,000 Finns for the survey in November.
