78% in Europe fear Muslim migration, want tighter borders

With the rife security issues experienced across Europe due to mass Muslim migration, a poll conducted across all 28 nations in the European Union (EU) revealed that 78 percent of EU citizens see the influx as a problem and desire tighter control of Europe’s external borders.

Most of the 1,000 respondents to the Századvég Foundation’s Project 28 survey conducted in February indicated that they fear the problems incurred by Europe’s illegal immigration for several of reasons.

“Residents of the EU continue to believe that migration has a significant impact: the majority (62 percent) of people believe that immigration increases crime and the threat of terrorism, while changing European culture and posing a huge burden on receiving countries,” Project 28 reported from its poll. “The perception of migration has also changed, with more and more people (now 54 percent) believing that the majority of migrants come to Europe for economic reasons and state benefits.”
