The fears have NOT been ignored, rather, the pro-immigration standpoint has been completely ignored in mainstream media. Voicing that opinion leads not only to being called 'naive', or 'traitor', but also to physical threats. The problem is the rise of the extreme right, but that is not a problem that you are allowed to point out in much of europe, including the Netherlands where I live. I had a refugee center in my street. I did not notice a difference when it opened, and did not notice a difference when it closed.
