In a blog post published on Thursday, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) said Finland’s top migration figures are “a little low.”
“In light of recent events in Finland, the U,S., and other countries, we have determined that the numbers are too low,” DHS spokesman Matthew Olsen said in a statement.
“We will work with the Finnish government to address this situation.”
The DHS noted that while Finland is an “outstanding destination for skilled and experienced workers,” the country has a “small number of skilled immigrants, a relatively small number of permanent residents, and no permanent residents of a legal status.”
It added that the “low numbers of skilled workers and their temporary residents indicate that the country’s labor market is not currently strong enough to sustain economic growth.”
In January, President Donald Trump signed an executive order barring citizens of seven majority-Muslim countries from entering the United States.
That order has been blocked by a federal judge.
