All Of America's Science Nobel Prize Winners Are Immigrants




The year's Nobel Prize winner line up will surely disappoint US Republican nominee Donald Trump, who believes that immigrants to the US are those with "lots of problems."


All 6 of America's Nobel Prize 2016 recipients in the field of science were immigrants.

The 2016 Nobel Prize in Physics: for "theoretical discoveries of topological phase transitions and topological phases of matter"

F. Duncan M. Haldane (Princeton University)

J. Michael Kosterlitz  (Brown University)

David J. Thouless  (the University of Washington in Seattle)
The 3 were born in the UK.

Haldane, an immigrant from Britain told The Hill that America attracted talent because of the nation's research-friendly funding system. He still called the immigration process "a bureaucratic nightmare for many people."
2016 Nobel Prize in Chemistry: "for the design and synthesis of molecular machines."

Sir J. Fraser Stoddart (Scottish born, Northwestern University)

"I think the United States is what it is today largely because of open borders," he said.
Economic Sciences: "for their contributions to contract theory."
Oliver Hart (Harvard University): Born in the UK

Bengt Holmström (MIT) : born in Finland


This is not a fluke occurrence


According to Stuart Anderson, of the National Foundation for American Policy, immigrants have won 40% of the 78 Nobels won by Americans in chemistry, medicine and physics since 2000.  They come from Japan, Canada, Turkey, Austria, China, Israel, South Africa and Germany.

In a 2014 academic paper, Anderson wrote: "The passage of the [US] Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, which eliminated the discriminatory national origin quotas and opened the door to Asian immigrants, and the Immigration Act of 1990, which increased employment-based green card numbers, were key factors in enhancing the ability of America to assimilate talented individuals from around the world into our culture and economy.
