Switzerland: Switzerland to deport immigrants with heavy crime record

Swiss voters have narrowly passed a controversial new law that will see foreigners deported if they're convicted of serious crimes. The vote has caused outrage among human rights movements, while the country's justice minister called it an expression of insecurity. Far-right and anti-immigration sentiment has been growing rapidly in Switzerland. A year ago Swiss voters passed another controversial law banning the construction of minarets over mosques.
