    Abstract

    Immigration scholars have found that the highly educated and political liberals are considerably less likely to support restrictionist immigration policies than other groups. I ask whether the influence of social desirability pressures in the survey interview is responsible for this finding. Copyright (c) 2010 by the Southwestern Social Science Association.
