New CVVM poll registers growing unease over foreigners

The number of Czechs who see foreigners as a threat to their way of life has gone up according to a new poll conducted by the CVVM agency. According to the poll, some 78 percent of respondents felt that not everyone should be allowed to stay just because they expressed an interest; some three-quarters replied that foreigners should be allowed to reside in the Czech Republic only under certain conditions. Four percent replied that foreign nationals should be allowed to resettle in the country without restrictions.
