The Immigration Crisis

Most summers, Europe has some sort of "immigration crisis." Slow news time otherwise and for various reasons there are more people attempting to arrive (legally, undocumented, attempting to receive refugee status, etc.) during that time. Even in the more left-leaning press it tends to be portrayed in more nativist terms, as the "crisis" is about countries being overrun by The Others.

There is a crisis. It's people dying in the attempt.
