Highlights About NumbersUSA

NumbersUSA is a non-profitable advocacy group based in Arlington, Virginia, focusing on restraining the number of immigrants entering the United States every year.

Background

Through its civil forums: NumbersUSA Action and NumbersUSA Education and Research Foundation, it enlightens the public, leaders, and policymakers on dangers posed by high immigration numbers on environmental, economic, and American Quality of Life.

NumbersUSA was established as an advocacy group by Roy Beck to limit the immigration number in the United States every year. The group came up as a result of two national commission arguments in 1996. The first Immigration Reform Commission was led by Advocate Barbara Jordan and sought to reduce the number of immigrants allowed to the U.S. by 500000. The other Immigration Reform Commission was established by President Bill Clinton and sought to minimize immigration numbers by more than the U.S. Immigration Reform Commission. Their arguments were based on limited natural resources and economic needs.

Mission

NumbersUSA is a nationwide immigration-reduction organization. It has over five million participants in all congressional districts. The organization members work together to persuade public representatives to back up immigration policies that protect all Americans, including the vulnerable, from losing their quality of life, freedom, access to nature, and wages as a result of high numbers of immigration that enlarge the United States population, government cost, and workforce.
