Nearly two-thirds of Czechs oppose taking in war refugees: poll
by Jason Hovet
About two out of three Czechs oppose taking in refugees from war zones, according to an opinion poll published on Monday, reflecting growing anti-migrant sentiment in a country that has taken a tough stance on migrants and refugees.
Central European nations have opposed quotas for sharing asylum-seekers among European Union members, and Czech President Milos Zeman is one of many leaders to have used anti-migrant rhetoric.
The latest monthly survey by the Czech Public Opinion Research Center found 65 percent of Czechs were against taking in war refugees, up from 50 percent in September.
