Other countries with strong majority opposition to non-EU migrants were Italy and Finland at 56 percent, France at 53 percent as well as Poland, Denmark and the Netherlands all at 52 percent.

In the survey, 19 member states recorded negative views on this topic of non-EU migration out of the 28 total member states.

At the same time, most countries had a much more positive view of migration from other EU countries, but in this category, Czechs still had the most negative opinion about migration, with 52 percent saying they had a negative view EU migrants coming to their country.
