Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
On second thought, I'm uncertain which migrant 'caravan' plummeting in US headline frequency (attributable to the 2018 US mid-term election) most interests you.

US press had plenty opinions about EU migrant CRISIS until Labor Day which was a pretty good foil for law 'n' order in the USA. Invasion by 'boat' had a certain prurient appeal to the impregnable Atlantic Ocean, and 'boat people' memories, not to mention the Immigration Act of  1965 are equally distant. Democratic Party functionaries are still around tho'.

I suspect, a bunch of refugees from conflict zones across Central America took umbrage and organized their 'media' game.

Now, the federales have installed razor wire. That's kind of Hungary, wouldn't you agree? Not new, not old, not attributable either to a US mid-term election.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
