Well, it's a measure against the islamisation of the west. They are being over-run by Muslims, I guess. And now the government "is taking the legitimate worries of the population" seriously. I don't believe that it will make more of the racists vote mainstream "conservative", but obviously the entire EPP spectrum thinks that. And accepts throwing human rights under the bus.
