Most of Europeans want a ban be put in place against immigrants from Muslim-majority counties, according to a poll.
The poll revealed that nearly 55 percent of people across 10 European countries wanted to stop all future immigration from mainly Muslim countries.
The poll was conducted before US President Donald Trump issued an executive order banning citizens of 7 Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States.
Majorities in all but two of the ten countries surveyed opposed immigration from mainly Muslim countries.
The polling showed that 20 percent disagreed with the ban and 25 percent said they did not know.
The immigration ban was supported by 71 percent of people in Poland, 65 per cent in Austria, 53 per cent in Germany, 51 per cent in Italy, and 47 percent in the UK.
This comes days after protesters gathered outside the US Consulate in Toronto to denounce Trump’s Muslim ban.
Thousands of protesters, holding placards, marched against Islamophobia and the US President Donald Trump on Saturday in downtown Toronto.
The rally was called a Day of Action Against Islamophobia and White Supremacy. The speakers at the event demanded the Canadian government immediately denounce Trump’s travel ban.
