St. Gallen became the second Swiss region to ban burqa-like face coverings in public Sunday, highlighting rising tensions over integrating Islamic immigrants in Europe.

A referendum on the ban saw a 36 percent turnout of St. Gallen’s voters, two-thirds of whom approved of the ban. The region is the second in Switzerland after Ticino to ban Islamic face coverings. Ticino approved a burqa ban in 2013, which went into effect in 2016.

The article goes on to state the following:

Basil Oberholzer, a St. Gallen parliament member from the Green Party, said that it is unclear how those who violate the new ban will be penalized, and that whether or not someone violating the ban poses a threat to public safety will be left to the judgement of police on the scene. Oberholzer opposed the ban, but acknowledged that it was the will of the people.
