Many people in the months since the November terrorist attacks in Paris have rushed to blame immigrants for an increasingly dangerous world, but a new study indicates that that assessment of the situation may be a bit off base.

Researchers at Warwick University in Coventry, England, have found that not only does an increase in migration not increase the risk of terrorism in a destination country, it can actually decrease the number of attacks. Overall, the study found that immigrants tend to adopt host country customs and skills, decreasing the likelihood of terrorist attacks.
