3x as likely
immigrants living in the U.S. were three times as likely as those born in the U.S. to have not completed high school

Source: Pew Research Center
Additional Information: Twenty-seven percent of immigrants age 25 and older in the United States have not completed high school. By comparison, 9 percent of people those ages born in the United States have not completed high school. But immigrants are as likely as U.S.-born residents to have a bachelor's degree or more.
