Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Let's go two steps further in your prediction. After the backlash you expect and the attempt to "close the door" that would follow, what reaction do you expect to the inevitable failure to stop the migration wave?

Myself, being pessimistic, I won't exclude apocalyptic scenarios. On the other hand, I can also see another kind of backlash: all these "not racist" "Germany can't take all refugees in the world" people getting a dose of reality, and falling silent not because they lost their concerns or suddenly began to like foreigners but because they recognise forces greater than they can control.
