In the spring of 2018, the Pew Research Center conducted a survey of 12 economically advanced countries which included the United States. They found that most Americans supported and would encourage the immigration of high-skilled people into our country. The survey found that 78% of U.S. adults supported high skilled immigration, which approximates the other countries in the survey. The survey also found that the United States had the largest number of college-educated immigrants in the world, with three times the number of immigrants ages 25 and older with a post-secondary diploma or college degree.
Please review the Pew Research Center’s Survey Results, “Majority of U.S. Public Supports High-Skilled Immigration” for more details.
