NumbersUSA is an advocacy agency whose primary purpose is to ensure a controlled number of immigrants entering the US. The agency provides a forum for Americans from all political and ethnic backgrounds to focus on the numerical issue of American immigrants.
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.
NumbersUSA educates policymakers, opinion leaders, including the public, on immigration policies and their consequences. As the largest grassroots organization working toward immigrant reduction, its members persuade officials to support their policies which protect the American citizens, especially the vulnerable ones, to ensure they do not lose their rights due to overpopulation.
The organization argues that those immigrating to the US are replacing the citizens in the workforce, leaving them jobless. As the number of immigrants increases, the natives’ lifestyle depreciates due to insufficient resources and economic constraints. NumbersUSA states that those with special needs are likely to suffer most. Its defense arguments revolve around two factors, inadequate natural resources to support the population and economic needs. Since its establishment, the organization has made an obligation to ensure immigration numbers are as low as possible.
NumbersUSA advocates for continued permanent immigration, which covers spouses and adopted children, protects the nuclear family, and particular needs for refugees with no intention of returning to their native countries to get resident rights in the United States of America. Another group, the organization, backs its permanent immigration with exceptional skills beneficial to the nation.
However, it disputes the immigration of extended family or work visas to individuals with essential skills that the natives can deliver. It aims to ensure illegal immigration is eliminated and replaced with a visit visa, allowing people to visit and study for a given period. The organization is working on an electronic verification system to ensure jobs and citizen rights are not given to illegal immigrants or visitors. Click here for more information.
