How NumbersUSA Helps Americans Address Their Grievances

 

If you think that immigration is negatively impacting your community, you’re not alone. NumbersUSA is a non-profit organization founded in 1996, which bills itself as the voice of immigration reform. Its mission is to protect and advance America’s existing immigration policies that “protect U.S. jobs, wages, and benefits; preserve national security; protect the legal rights of U.S. workers; allow immigrants to integrate into society without compromising who we are as a nation.”

Since its inception, NumbersUSA has grown exponentially into an advocacy powerhouse with over three million members. Its immigration reform effectiveness hinges on three campaign strategies:

Educate Your Elected Officials and Government Agencies on the Negative Impact of Immigration to American Society, Including:

The impact of high levels of immigration to the erosion of America’s economic competitiveness, resulting in lower wages and a larger poverty rate than the U.S.’s neighbors.

The negative impact of high levels of immigration to increased crime rates.

The negative impact of high levels of immigration to increased cost of services and higher taxes on U.S. citizens as net immigration grows from current levels.

Turn Uninformed Americans into Political Advocates for Immigration Reform, by:

Educating Americans about the economic and social impacts of high immigration rates.

Engaging uninformed Americans in the issues surrounding immigration by: explaining their concerns, holding community forums, and sharing their views with elected officials.

Encouraging Americans to become advocates for immigration reform by providing a platform to have their voices heard.

Educating Americans about the political process and how they can be part of advocacy efforts, through cliff notes on how it works.

Hold Elected Officials Accountable for Their Actions, Including:

Forms for Americans to hold their elected officials accountable for their actions on immigration

Promise that elected officials will not be able to ignore our concerns

Hold elected officials accountable for their actions by actively communicating with them

Promote upcoming elections so that Congress has one more chance to ensure immigration reform will pass

To accomplish these goals, NumbersUSA maintains a presence through several channels, including state-based chapters, national conferences, special events and legislative activities. The organization also has published books which provide information on the issues surrounding immigration in America and how they impact U.S.
