Swiss People's Party
The Swiss People's Party is a right-wing populist and conservative political party in Switzerland. They won their first election in 2003, and since then, have come under fire for their anti-immigration stances and perceived racism. They are largely responsible for numerous referendums that were blatantly anti-immigrant, and they have worked to curtail immigration in Switzerland. Most notable of these referendums are a ban on minarets on mosques and immigration quotas.
While they insist that they are merely "anti-mass immigration", many have noted that it can and should be considered racist.
