Q: What does choke-point in this paragraph mean?
A: The number of them alone is not relevant. If the refugees are "Choking" the economy. As in using up all the resources, taking up housing space and lowering the value of the neighborhood than yes.

In this context though, I think it means a physical squeeze. Like if you're travelling in a car or boat and you have to go through a tunnel where there is very little room between you're vehicle and the walls where you have to move very slowly or calmly to prevent scraping the walls.
Q: What does “had to have” in attached paragraph mean?

Q: What does "less politically difficult to address" in the paragraph mean?
A: If something is politically difficult, it means that it is hard to get voter or general public or government support for it. "Less politically difficult to address" means "easier to handle the problem because there will be voter or general public or government support for a solution." I cannot tell exactly what the context is here, but I am assuming the great imbalance in the spending will make people (voters, general public, the government) more willing to even out the spending to solve the problem.

The beginning of a new invention, which was determined by motion and then called the film, needs to be traced back to the 19th century when the outstanding British photographer Eadweard Muybridge starts doing experiments with subsequent photographs to study animal movements – images of a galloping horse. One of the most influential people in developing of cinematography were Louis and Auguste Lumière. They virtually made a breakthrough by combining the functions of camera and projector into one machine hence the first film ‘La Sortie des usines Lumiere’ (Workers Leaving the Lumiere Factory) was shown in 1895. Unfortunately, they claimed that the Cinematography is idea without future; however Thomas A. Edison thought differently. He created films Ruth Dennis doing a skirt dance outsides and then in 1896 people were able to admire his first exhibition of his new version of a Kinetoscope, called the Vitascope. They were watching the Leigh sisters dancing with their umbrella in New York City. Consequently, at the beginning of 20th century cinema immensely started to develop primarily in New York. But also, in the suburbs of Los Angeles, Harvey Henderson Wilcox founded a new studio system the Hollywood. The studio which has been a huge production and has had a big impact on film productions, cinemas, fashions, and cultures.
