Description: 

Normally open borders began restricting access, a strong military presence became visible in train stations, and the issue of asylum-seekers became a major focus of public attention. This has not only resulted in electoral gains by far right-wing anti-immigration parties in recent elections, but one of the more disturbing aspects of the dramatic and disruptive decision by the British electorate to leave the European Union was how much of it was apparently rooted in anti-immigrant sentiment.
