The European Commission has declared that the crisis resulting from the massive influx of migrants is all but over, blaming continued concern about immigration on fake news. RT quizzed Europeans on how they view the claim. Frans Timmermans, the European Commission’s first vice-president announced that while “structural problems” still exist, “Europe is no longer experiencing the migration crisis we lived in 2015.” But people on the streets of European cities told RT they were less certain that the storm had passed. “I don’t think it’s over, and I don’t think it will be over for a while. We took a lot of people in. Only a few have work, only a few are in training or education. I think they should be integrated into society better,” said one Berliner approached for comment. “They’re still coming to us, to Europe,” another insisted. Residents of Paris and Naples expressed similar skepticism when asked how they felt about Timmermans’ statement. Watch the full report below.
