NumbersUSA is a nonpartisan organization that campaigns for the protection of American workers and an end to immigrant job competition. The group’s website defines itself as “a non-political, non-profit, non-sectarian public policy research organization” with the purpose of “keeping immigration levels at a level where America will remain culturally diverse and free from excessive numbers of immigrants who will compete for jobs.”
To achieve this, the organization has employed various means of political activism, including online and print advertising, lobbying for policy change, and grassroots campaigning. It is a member of the Keep Immigration Under Control Coalition.
Since 2005, NumbersUSA has attracted support from conservatives and liberals in reducing immigration levels. On February 25, 2013, the organization received a 2013 Presidential Citizenship Award from FAIR (Federation for American Immigration Reform). U.S. Representative Steve King (R-IA) presented this award to Roy Beck during the 7th Annual Conservative Legislative Action Conference in Washington DC. Rep. Steven King said during the event, “NumbersUSA’s programs should be studied and copied by every conservative organization.”
On immigration, NumbersUSA advocates for lower immigration levels and keeping immigration under control. The group supports ending the issuance of green cards to foreign workers and their families in the U.S. for reasons other than employment and family relationships with citizens or legal immigrants. It also supports reducing illegal immigration by prosecuting employers who hire illegal immigrants and strengthening border security against unlawful entry by persons from other countries.
In addition to advocating for reduced immigration on economic grounds (i.e., job competition), NumbersUSA cites several other reasons to maintain low levels of immigration. The organization maintains that the environmental impact of immigration (e.g., carbon emissions; overuse of resources) will hurt the U.S. It also says that increased immigration could lead to increased domestic terrorism linked to religious extremism, an increase in healthcare costs, and national security issues related to a lack of border enforcement and high numbers of illegal aliens already in the U.S. If you want to learn more, visit this page.
