Sorry about this miniature graph, but if you click on it, it will be legibly large.

Anyway, it`s from a Pew Center polling of people in 47 countries on whether "We should further restrict and control immigration." (See p. 29 of the PDF.) Those favoring more restrictions on immigration are the salmon colored bars, those disagreeing are the blue bars. The restrictionists win in 44 of 47 countries, only losing two East Asian countries that haven`t really tried immigration yet, Japan and South Korea, and in the Palestinian Territories (I don`t know exactly how the Palestinians interpreted that question—perhaps they read it as restricting their right to immigrate into Israel and reclaim grandpa`s house in Haifa.)
