Can you say, “More extreme than Donald Trump’s temporary immigration ban”? If you can, you would be describing the situation in ten European nations that would like to stop all future immigration (as in permanently) from all mainly Muslim countries.
A poll on the subject conducted by Chatham House, a London-based think tank, before the U.S. president signed his much-in-the-news executive order demanding a 90-day moratorium on visas to residents of seven Muslim-majority countries, found:
- a ban on immigration from all Muslim-majority countries was supported by 71% of people in Poland, 65% in Austria, 53% in Germany, 51% in Italy, and and 47% in the UK.
- In no country did more than 32% disagree with such a ban.
