NumbersUSA is an organization that advocates for immigration policies that favor American citizens. The organization has been seeking for the immigration numbers to return to normal towards the historical levels. It was founded in 1996 by Roy Beck after findings from two congregational communities; the US commission on immigration reform and President Clinton’s task force on population and consumption. The US Commission found that the high number of immigrants in the country has a lot of drawbacks for US citizens. NumberUSA has been active since 1995 and has more than 1.3 million members as of 2018. It’s been a powerful voice for immigration restrictions policies in America, advocating for lower levels of legal immigration.
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 has recently advocated for eliminating DACA, which provides work permits to undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children. The group’s website says it does not want to deport these immigrants but wants them to leave voluntarily. It advocates for a stable population which would be achieved by reducing the admission of illegal immigrants. The organization is also against illegal immigration because it strains natural resources and quality of life for those already in the United States.
NumbersUSA believes that the way to achieve its goal is by limiting immigrants and refugees. This would be achieved through a fence along or near most of the border and an end to birthright citizenship so that only children born in this country on legal visas could be citizens. The idea behind the organization is to limit immigration and population growth to restore the national identity and “rootedness” and make America great again. The group believes that by increasing the territory it can control, it would be able to preserve American culture. NumbersUSA also seeks to limit immigration to reduce the need for public assistance, which will increase tax revenue and create a more stable economy. Click here for more information.
