During an interview with BBC, Gates said America has "the capacity" to do the same as Germany and Sweden, two countries he said ought "to be congratulated" for opening the doors wide to migrants.
Gates made the comments while speaking at the World Economic Forum in Switzerland.
"The total number of refugees is not a world record," he said, saying the issue had become more focused on politics rather than the human element.
