Thanks. But that seems to be different data. I'm pretty sure that this counts naturalized citizens while that doesn't.

2017 will definitely show an increase in people coming from terror-exporting countries like Syria, Somalia, Algeria, etc.

TinklePork I don't think there is any violence in Algeria right now. Even if people do leave for better job opportunities or living conditions, the number won't increase by much; right now many people immigrate, not emigrate, to France because it has historically been a France colony and educated people speak French.

Those places are territories of France, so they probably don't count.

Figured the last one I was missing was in Africa, but I was stuck on entirely the wrong part of the continent.
