From what I know of immigration the only people rejected and sent back to Europe were the diseased and those so disabled they could not work and care for themselves. That is unless they came with healthy family members who would care for them. No one asked about their financial or educational situation. All four of my grandparents were poor and brought little more than a few suitcases of clothing and small personal items. They had very little money. Only one could read and write in her native language. None spoke English.
I'm not for open borders as you know. People should be background-checked. But rejecting people because they're poor and uneducated somehow doesn't strike me as being right or moral.
