Do you think that someone had painted a pretty picture of Europe for immigrants?

Hi! Let's tackle a delicate issue of immigrants today... I know this is a very controversial topic to discuss these days. On the one hand, there are people who made a very difficult decision to flee their countries because of war and persecution - and I think mostly of Christians here... On the other hand, however, there are people who seize the opportunity of leaving their country because they'd been painted a pretty picture of what a great life it is to live in Europe for there are high social benefits and lots of other things they can get without doing anything... I guess this is the right context to talk about the idiom I'd prepared for today, that is...

which in Polish can be translated as 'przedstawić obraz czegoś w (sielankowy) sposób'... Idiom ten jest o tyle fajny, że można 'namalować' obraz czegoś na różne sposoby... Mój przykład zawiera na przykład słówko 'pretty'... ale można przecież przedsatwić komuś obraz sytuacji, który jest ponury...

What do you think of those waves of immigrants flooding Europe?
