A group of anti-immigration True Finn members published over the weekend their recipe to correct Finland’s “wayward” immigration policy. As I wrote on June 20, their new immigration policy stance will not surprise anyone since the True Finns’ anti-immigration stance is well known.
The use of the term maahanmuuttokriittinen, or immigration critic, reveals what some journalists think about immigration to or in Finland. It can very well reveal that the journalist may hold the same opinions of anti-immigration groups.
The anti-immigration True Finns will make public their official stand on immigration on Saturday, July 24. Should we now hold our collective breaths?
A recent poll commissioned by YLE shows that the anti-immigration True Finns Party would gain 10.1% of the votes if an election were held today. It is the first time that 10% of respondents have given their voting preference to the True Finns.
