Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Environment, International, International Migration & Refugee Issues

Mission: Numbersusa education & research foundation provides a civil forum for americans of all political and ethnic backgrounds to focus on a single issue, the numerical level of u. S. Immigration. We educate opinion leaders, policymakers and the public on immigration legislation, policies and their consequences. We favor reductions in immigration numbers toward traditional levels that would allow present and future generations of americans to enjoy a stabilizing u. S. Population and high degree of individual liberty, mobility, environmental quality, worker fairness and fiscal responsibility.

Programs: Labor-force competition, unemployment, wage depression and income inequality: public education on the role of immigration policy in depressing wages, decreasing workforce participation, worsening working conditions, widening economic disparity and reducing educational quality, particularly for the most vulnerable american workers and children. Also education on the role of immigration -- both legal and illegal -- in depressing technical and managerial innovations. Educational efforts include tv, radio, internet and print media interviews focusing on the plight of unemployed and underemployed americans; and writings and papers on the topic made available to 3 million online participants and the public via press releases, emails, website postings, presentations at universities and civic organizations.

research and education on immigration legislation and enforcement: analysis of federal and state immigration legislation with particular focus on numerical impact of proposed legislation (on both legal and illegal immigration levels).

Results are made available to 3 million online participants and the public through the mass media, email, press releases, lectures, postings on websites.

Population growth, projections for the future, and implications, particularly on the quality of life of american individuals and communities and on the country's eco-systems.

I joined NumbersUSA many years ago when, as a liberal, I was looking for an organization that reflected my concerns about the effect of our high rate of immigration on population increase and on low wages and high unemployment among blue collar and particularly black Americans without attacking or demeaning immigrants. I read a fine interview with Roy Beck in the New York Times and immediately joined. NumbersUSA explicitly condemns hostile views of immigrants and focuses its attention entirely on immigration policy. If you have followed Roy Beck's blogs on the NumbersUSA website you know that he has a lifelong commitment to civil rights and a particular concern for the economic well being of the most vulnerable Americans. As a former environmental journalist he is also concerned about the population increase being driven by immigration. NumbersUSA, as its website says, in concerned with the immigration rate, not who the immigrants are or where they come from. I'm an Old Left, Bernie Sanders liberal who voted for Barack Obama in 2008, and according to the New York Times, so did Roy Beck (Davis, 2014). NumbersUSA is the best source on the web for real immigration news (no, they don't print stuff about crimes by illegal immigrants, but they do report on bills introduced in Congress). NumbersUSA is a responsible and honest voice in an important national debate.

Good review; But why do these people have to make over $200,00 a year to be doing something that should be a public service, i.e., volunteer!
