Migrant Crisis in Europe Latest News June 2016

The migrant crisis has fast become one of the most important issues in European politics. More than 1 million migrants came ashore last year, straining the Schengen free movement area to breaking point, with many countries erecting walls and applying border countrols in order to have some semblance of control.

The migrant crisis was initially focused on Italy with desperate migrants fleeing poverty and war in Africa, Syria and Iraq. However after german chancellor Angela Merkel announced that migrants could obtain refuge in Germany the flood gates opened, with thousands arriving daily on the Greek Islands from Turkey, a much shorter and safer journey than the one from Libya to Italy.

With the recent deal between Turkey and the EU migrant arrivals in Greece have been largely curtailed, however as many predicted this has lead to a new surge of arrivals in Italy, with 15,000 migrants arriving in just one week at the end of April.

Latest Polls Donald Trump Hillary Clinton June 7 2016

The latest polling data shows that the race between the two likely contenders in the 2016 presidential election race has become somewhat tighter compared to just a few weeks ago.

Controversial businessman Donald Trump, whose candidacy was branded a "joke" and "publicity stunt" by many commentators is now being taken seriously by his opponents after he crushed his adversaries in the Republican Primaries, installing himself as the party`s presumptive nominee.

On the democrat side, Clinton has pretty much tied up the nomination, largely due to her greater popularity with the superdelegates compared to her rival Bernie Sanders. Barring some last moment massive switch of allegiance of the superdelegates, then we are looking at a Trump-Clinton showdown.

According to the latest average of polls on the site RealClearPolitics Hillary Clinton leads Trump by 1.5 points, 43.8%-42.3%. Compare this to April where the former First Lady and Secretary of State was enjoying a ten point lead.
