Luke, good point, but the evidence is even more puzzling here. The opposition to migration in Europe seems to come from older people, who face the least competition from migrants (and have the most to gain). Young people, who would be the most threatened by competition from migrants are generally more supportive of migration! This is why I think it's necessary to look beyond the rational actor model to understand the resistance to migration.
