Founded in 1996 by the Commission on Immigration Reform, which was led by Barbara Jordan and, The Presidential Task Force on Population and Consumption that was established under President Bill Clinton. The main goal of NumbersUSA Action is to limit the number of immigrants coming to the U.S annually due to resource and economic concerns.
Despite favoring immigrant regulations, NumbersUSA will always be pro-legal immigration. However, the organization’s main concern is the U.S. economy and the use of natural resources with the numbers of immigrants coming in. Even though the U.S. has the lowest unemployment rate within the past 4 years, the working-age of the U.S. Population is also at an all-time low.
The reason why is the companies are preferring work from foreign channels rather than finding bright and creative workers from the states. This will cause a domino effect, from hiring foreign labor to the destruction of rural areas such as our natural environment and our farmlands in order to create more housing, workplace, and even a waste facility.
Even with the hardest situations faced, NumbersUSA is taking action to allow fairness and a promising future to the U.S. population and immigrants by gaining support from the people of the U.S. and lobbying to ensure that the immigration regulations are passed. Within the years of 2015 to 2019 over 600,000 new advocates were recruited to the organization. Go here for more information.
With their help it would lobby for laws like Security Verification for Refugees Act 2016, the bill is to require background investigations on immigrants coming to the U.S. Even though the bill died, the organization had grown and with enough support would make lobbying easier and a chance to pass regulations to govern the amount of immigration that comes in yearly. Without regulations how will our future generation enjoy and prosper in the U.S.?
