Huddled Masses: Public Opinion and the 1965 U.S. Immigration Act

The Roper Center at Cornell University has produced a report concerning public opinion about the 1965 U.S. Immigration Act which shifted the criteria for admission of immigrants from a system of country quotas to the prioritization of family reunification and occupational skills.   This report is timely considering the ongoing controversies surrounding the Syrian refugee crisis, terrorism, and the decision by many American state governors to refuse to accept Syrian immigrants.

This report can be found in the iPoll Databank,  the most comprehensive, up-to-date resource for US public opinion poll data. iPOLL is also the best finding aid to locate US national opinion poll questions rich in a particular subject, with direct links into the catalog of datasets and survey questionnaires.
