Taking in refugees is somewhat controversial, but a new survey says 4 in 5 people across the globe are open to letting refugees in.
The Amnesty International study says out of 27 countries, the most welcoming were China, Germany and the U.K. That's based on citizens in those nations saying they'd let refugees stay with them or in their neighborhood.
The U.S. ranked in the middle, with Americans saying they were open to letting refugees in their cities or towns.
