Years ago in America, there was a kind of understanding that NYC, LA, Miami and a few other places absorbed the "diversity" and the rest of the country got to function normally. Over time, though, the tide rose to the point where schools in Oklahoma City needed Urdu translators and there were honor killings in Wichita. That's when everybody started to pay more attention to who was coming into the country.
The same is happening in Europe. It's no longer just places like London, Paris, Amsterdam and Berlin that are, um, "world cities". People in places all over the continent are now faced with significant populations of unemployable, often hostile and very foreign people with their hands out. As in America, the drip, drip, drip of the past several decades has reached a critical mass. It's no longer a problem for distant big cities that most people had contempt for anyway, it's right outside the door.
