I was once asked over 10 years ago at a Counter-Jihad convention in Denmark:
How do the Finns do it? How do they have such a low Muslim population in their country while countries all around it are teeming with them?
That’s changing fast, and it’s not just Muslim demographics that are expanding, but other groups as well. Complete open borders is the goal of EU immigration policies, and it’s going to lead to greater demographic dislocation as more ethnic Finns leave for other areas not taken over by today’s policies.
According to the Helsinki City Council, nearly 100,000 foreign-born people were living in Helsinki at the beginning of 2018.
The figure is 15.5 percent of the city’s total population. A foreign national means a person whose parents are born abroad.
18 percent of all with foreign-born backgrounds were born in Finland or belonged to a second-generation foreign-born background. The information can be found on the website of the Helsinki City Council on foreigners’ ulkomaalaistaustaisethelsingissa.fi .
Last year, the number of non-Finnish foreign students grew by 5020 people, or 5.3 per cent. Growth has been downward in the last five years, but still about two-thirds of the population’s population growth comes from those with foreign backgrounds.
At the beginning of 2018 almost half of the country’s population with foreign backgrounds lived in the metropolitan area, with the region accounting for about one fifth of Finland’s total population.
The most common with foreign background in the country were the former Soviet Union (excluding Estonia) (17,836), Estonia (12,792), Somalia (10,203), Iraq (5,335) and China (3,310). During the year 2017, the number of Asian-based students in Helsinki increased the most.
