NumbersUSA Promotes Fair Immigration Reform
Founded in 1996 by Roy Beck, NumbersUSA is pro-immigration advocacy group with more than five million members located in all of the congressional districts. Their goal is to lower the number of immigrants coming into the US by half to ease the country’s economic needs and fleeting natural resources.
By replacing chain-immigration, the visa lottery and employment based on working jobs that US citizens can work with new policies can the immigration crisis be slowed. Only by replacing open door policies with new ones that are fair and beneficial to the American people can the growing number of immigrants coming to the country be curved.
Instead of chain-immigration, NumbersUSA suggest only allowing foreign spouse and their minor children that are married to a US citizen to be allowed to go through the immigration process. People looking to move to the US for work must have skills in the national interest. Temporary visas can be issued when there is a shortage of workers instead of a permanent one.
Initiating an open visit policy for studying, touring and visiting relatives would help eliminate illegal immigration. These long-term visits would be tracked so jobs could not be obtained and tax benefits would not be paid. It would also notify proper authorities if there is a visa violation.
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.
Since 2015, NumbersUSA has lobbied for over 30 bills in congress including the Secure the Border First Act and Justice for Victims of trafficking Act in 2015. In 2016 they worked on the Enforce the Law for Sanctuary Cites Act, Security Verification for Refugees Act and the Repeal Executive Amnesty Act. Recently they were apart of stopping the For the People Act that intended to make it harder for groups like NumbersUSA to participate in citizen advocacy. Click here to learn more about NumbersUSA.
