If you watch the news, you’ve probably heard about the refugee crisis in Europe (or the “migrant crisis” as some are referring to it). Hundreds of thousands asylum seekers from the Middle East and Africa are flooding across the borders. As of July, European countries had received over 437,000 Asylum applications for the year. In 2014 just over 840,000 applications were received.
So why is this happening? Where are migrants/refugees coming from? Why are there so many of them?
The corporate media and the political establishment on both the left and the right will answer those questions with a combination of half truths and outright lies. This shouldn’t be surprising. It is in their interest to cover up the role they played in creating the crisis.
