According to an opinion poll on immigration conducted by Ifop, in partnership with the Jean Jaures Foundation and the American Jewish Committee, 52 per cent of French men and women believe that France welcomes “too many foreigners”.

A further 27 per cent believe that France welcomes “enough”, meaning that a total of 79 per cent of the country’s citizens believe that France should not welcome any more immigrants.

The poll, which was published in the weekly Journal du Dimanche, also revealed that 64 per cent of respondents agreed with the statement: “our country already has many foreigners and welcoming additional immigrants would be undesirable”.
