From the NYT:
Despite the claims of far-right leaders, the number of undocumented migrants arriving each year is back to pre-crisis levels — and has been for some time.

And then to prove its point, the NYT splashes this comparison shot:
Look at that! So, what’s the problem, you far-right extremists?
Underneath the photos, the NYT runs the caption:
Refugee families camped in central Budapest, Hungary, in 2015. The same location was nearly empty this month.
In other words, by 2018 in Hungary, Orban, the NYT-hated leader of Hungary, has mostly solved the Merkel-caused crisis that Orban was complaining about Merkel causing in 2015.
So why are Europeans these days voting more for crazed extremists like the crisis-solving Orban than for respected moderates like the crisis-causing Merkel?
It’s a puzzlement.
