The opposition party Dawn has launched a petition calling for the tightening of EU immigration policy. Dawn’s chairman Tomio Okamura told reporters on Tuesday that his party would not tolerate illegal immigration and it would like to introduce strict quotas for legal migrants. "The Czech Republic does not need unadaptable foreigners or religious fanatics, they need us, they want to sponge off our system," Okamura said, adding that there are millions of the unemployed people in Europe whom their governments should help instead of supporting foreigners. Dawn members are collecting signatures all over the Czech Republic.
