A survey of more than 8,000 respondents assesses the consequences of values “frames,” or the context in which information is presented, for immigration policies and attitudes. The survey, conducted by FrameWorks Institute and supported by the MacArthur Foundation, analyzes how three different, persuasive immigration narratives can help advocates and others involved in the debate overcome the vitriol and rhetoric in which the conversation is currently entrenched. The report is part of a series of studies designed to document how people think about immigration and proposed reforms and how advocates and experts can best reframe the discussion toward productive dialogue.
