6 of the 7 American Nobel laureates for 2016 are immigrants. #PositivelyImmigration
The 2016 presidential election has shone a very negative light on U.S. immigration. The U.S. immigration system certainly has its' share of flaws and is due for some serious reform. For example, in regards to the administrative process, 2016 Nobel prize winner in physics and Princeton University professor, Duncan Haldane, described the U.S. immigration system as a "bureaucratic nightmare."
But it is short-sighted to suggest that the U.S. immigration policy does not have a positive effect on our country and way of life. The fact is, America still attracts the best and the brightest from around the world. The U.S. immigration system is set up to favor skilled labor and higher education (particularly the sciences). This has led to a lot of the innovative scientific innovations that have taken place in this country over the past century.
As further evidence of the positive impact of immigrants in the U.S., this year 6 of the 7 Nobel Prize winners were born outside the United States (Bob Dylan, the Nobel Prize winner in literature, was the 1 domestic-born winner). Read more here.
