NumbersUSA Role

NumbersUSA is a nonprofit advocacy group seeking to balance immigration numbers and create a better, more secure America. The organization advocate for less immigration to the United States each year. Its primary goal is to create a fair and more prosperous society with opportunities for immigrants who want to come to America. The organization work on several levels, including state-specific legislative initiatives, education campaigns in schools and colleges, and grassroots advocacy. It has bipartisan support in this effort.

NumbersUSA was founded in 1996 by Roy Beck, a journalist who remains its president. Roy graduated from the University of Missouri and worked as a journalist in various newspapers.

A major concern of the institution is balancing the number of new immigrants with the size of the United States. The organization’s goal is to have no net increase in immigration annually and provides educational programs, legislative initiatives, and other means to achieve this goal.

Why Numbers USA Supports Immigration Reform

They’re an offshoot of the FAIRO or the “Federation of American Immigration Reform Organizations”; which was founded in 1982 to represent the interests of citizens who believed in individual freedom and opposed mass-unlimited immigration.

Firstly, the organization supports immigration reform. It argues that the United States needs to recognize the need to bring in foreign workers. This necessity of having a growing economy is another reason cited by the organization. According to the organization, many states and cities are currently struggling with unemployment and overstretched public resources, as this factor may push them towards greater dependency on immigrants.

Furthermore, the institution believes that illegal immigration should not be stopped completely since it does not threaten national security or American jobs. The organization favors legislation that will cater to the needs of both immigrants and native citizens.

NumbersUSA believes that the United States should have a more strategic approach in dealing with immigration instead of focusing on one aspect alone. It aims to have an efficient and legal immigration system and sensible limits on the number of immigrants allowed into the country each year. To prevent illegal immigration, the organization supports punishing employers who hire illegal workers and establishing a clear path for guest workers to enter the country legally.
