NUMBERSUSA EDUCATION & RESEARCH FOUNDATION

For Lower Immigration Levels - Because Numbers Count

Arlington, VA   |  www.numbersusa.org

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 a high degree of individual liberty, mobility, environmental quality, worker fairness and fiscal responsibility.

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

NumbersUSA is currently addressing two primary widespread problems in the United States: (1) Despite recent good news on the official unemployment rate, the labor participation rates for the working-age U.S. population remain near record lows. These individuals and communities are left behind in today's economy in part because employers decline to form creative and aggressive recruitment channels to identify, engage and train from this idle potential workforce, preferring foreign labor channels. (2) The numerical level of population growth -- driven almost entirely by federal immigration policies -- continues to force massive destruction of farmlands and natural habitats to provide housing, transportation, workplaces, education, waste management and much more for the tens of millions of additional residents.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

U.S. Population Growth, Rural Land Loss and the American Quality of Life

Research and public education about U.S. population growth, projections for the future, the role of immigration policy, and implications, particularly on farmland, natural habitat, separate identities of local communities and the quality of life of American individuals and communities and on the country's eco-systems. Interactive web-based tools, publications, videos, internet presentations are available to the public, used by more than 9 million online participants in all 50 states and all 3,141 counties, including educational uses in colleges, civic and religious organizations and news media. Staff educates the public through appearances at academic conferences, university classes, civic events and on national, regional and local TV, radio, social media, newspapers, blogs, journals.

Population(s) Served

Analysis of federal and state immigration legislation with particular focus on numerical impact of proposed legislation (on both legal and illegal immigration levels). Educating the public, students, public officials, news media and non-government organizations on findings of research

Population(s) Served

Public education on the role of U.S. 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 and messaging, focusing on the plight of unemployed and underemployed Americans; and writings and papers on the topic made available to more than 9 million online participants and the public via press releases, emails, social media, website postings, presentations to university and civic organization audiences.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

NumbersUSA Education and Research Foundation seeks to provide a civil forum for Americans of all political and ethnic backgrounds to learn about, consider, discuss, and evaluate, a single issue – the numeric level of U.S. immigration. We promote a rate of immigration that would allow present and future generations of Americans to enjoy a stabilizing U.S. population and a high degree of individual liberty, mobility, environmental quality, worker fairness, and fiscal responsibility. In order to achieve our purpose, we have two foundational goals:
• Examine numerical levels of annual legal and illegal immigration.
• Educate the public about the effects of current levels of immigration as well as the immigration-related recommendations from two national commissions: the U.S. Commission on Immigration Reform and the President's Council on Sustainable Development.

To accomplish our goal, we employ the following strategies.
• Our staff analyzes federal and state immigration legislation with particular focus on the numeric impact of proposed legislation.
• We track Federal enforcement of immigration law and implementation of new laws.
• We create and maintain a system of online, educational, interactive tools that are used by opinion leaders, policymakers and the public to gain information about U.S. immigration policy and its consequences.
• Throughout the year, our staff addresses universities, civic organizations, religious groups, environmental meetings, and other groups and events to discuss U.S. immigration policy.
• Our staff educates the public through regular appearances on national, regional and local TV, radio, webcasts, newspapers, blogs, and journals.
• We make all of our educational tools available to the public at no charge – either via our website or by mailing reports, studies, and DVDs to those who request hard copies.

• We have more than 30 individuals working for us, a majority of whom have years of experience with federal immigration policy. Our staff includes: two lawyers trained in writing and interpreting immigration law; 10 computer programmers trained to create online educational tools; three individuals with 10+ years in non-profit bookkeeping and administration; as well as a dozen or so policy staff skilled at writing, researching, and communicating.
• We have more than 9 million opt-in, online participants in all 50 states, who receive our educational messages and often distribute to their own networks, thus greatly expanding the range of our educational efforts.
• We have a network of specialists (environmental consultants, statisticians, researchers, editors) whom we contract to assist on our research and writing projects.

• Over the course of our 16-year history, we have become well-established as the most credible source on Capitol Hill for information about immigration legislation. Our Legislative Team is in close contact with scores of Congressional offices on a daily basis, responding to their requests for information about immigration legislation and the impacts of proposed legislation.
• We have become the nation's largest immigration grassroots organization with over 9 million online, opt-in participants who use our educational tools on a regular basis.
• We have established a truly non-partisan organization, offering a forum for people of all political parties to participate in civil discourse about the consequences one federal policy: immigration.
• We have created a host of online educational tools (including reports, studies, interactive charts, and videos) to allow the public access to up-to-date information on U.S. immigration policy and its impacts.
• We continue to develop and expand our programs at the state and local level, offering information and educational tools that the public can use to gain information and understanding about state and local policies that impact immigration levels.
