Results of French population survey showed French grievance with helping migrants

According to the regular poles, France is one of the most anti-immigrant countries in Western Europe. A new poll shows 72 percent of French believe that the government provides too much aid to migrants, and the same percentage think they cause danger.

61 percent of respondents believe that immigrants are a cultural threat, according to the research by French consumer and public opinion firm Toluna. French news portal Fdesouche reports that 56 percent even think that migrants are a threat to the social fabric.

“Degraded opinion of the French on immigrants: too much help from the state 72%, cause security issues 72%, cultural threat 61%, social threat 56%. But 66% recognize that they are often victims of discrimination”.  Paul Cébille (@Ellibec) August 31, 2023.

The research also shows that 14 percent of French citizens support unconditionally acceptance of migrants, while 24 percent, mostly voters of the National Rally and the Republicans, refuse to accept migrants in their country.

“Only 14% of French people would like foreigners to be welcomed without any conditions and 24% would like welcome no foreigners at all (majority of RN and R)”. Paul Cébille (@Ellibec) August 31, 2023.

The polling fits with a broad, decades-long trend of the French public rejecting mass immigration. Another poll this year found that 64 percent of French are against non-European immigration.

However, this tendency may eventually change very soon as the indigenous French population is continuously moving, in which case the “new French” may tip the polls in favor of more immigration, as they have a strong incentive to bring family members and fellow countrymen and women into France.

So-called the “Great Replacement” is happening in France’s major cities, but it is also now in the countryside, where native Europeans are being replaced by non-Europeans at a rapid pace.

“This is in fact a fragmentation and yes, this risk does exist and in any case, I think the demographic change of Europe is extremely spectacular. The historical peoples in certain municipalities and regions are becoming a minority,” said influential French philosopher Alain Finkielkraut while discussing the Great Replacement on the Europe 1 channel in 2022. “A whole part of French people now live not in the suburbs, but beyond the suburbs, because they are no longer the cultural reference they used to be, because all the butchers are, for example, Halal”.
