How does a country maximize benefits and minimize harm? These are the questions that any immigration policy must answer. First and foremost, we promote a civil forum to consider these questions. We are moderates, conservatives & liberals working together to empower voters to achieve a sensible immigration policy.
See our approach to balancing the needs of different stakeholders, including the general public, the vulnerable, the business community, families, the hundreds of millions around the world who hope to immigrate, and the billions who never will.
“We decry hostility and discrimination towards immigrants as antithetical to the traditions and interests of the country. At the same time, we disagree with those who would label efforts to control immigration as being inherently anti-immigrant. Rather, it is both a right and a responsibility of a democratic society to manage immigration so that it serves the national interest.”
Rep. Barbara Jordan
Chair, U.S. Commission on Immigration ReformRead More

The Most Important Action
The most important action any voter can take to achieve a sensible immigration policy is to contact their members of Congress. NumbersUSA makes it easy with our free selection of action opportunities. Get started and we’ll customize an Action Board for you.
This is how we achieve sensible policy: together. NumbersUSA builds bridges, leverages the tools of democracy, and studies the diverse impacts of federal immigration policy.
Federal immigration policy drives most U.S. population growth which affects every aspect of the country’s natural and human environment – including habitat loss, extinction, congestion, and other quality-of-life losses. NumbersUSA is the premier education and research organization on immigration’s role in population growth and its impacts.The Sustainability Initiative
Immigration policy is set by Congress and implemented by the Executive Branch. Yet, the impact of immigration occurs in every state. States are granted authority to address immigration as long as it does not go against Federal law. The use of E-Verify and several other common immigration related issues are being debated and addressed at the state level. NumbersUSA is making your voice heard in your state.The States Initiative
Immigration is about people and how they interact with and impact each other. NumbersUSA wants to works with all groups who are looking for sensible immigration policy to accomplish better immigration.
Immigration has, at different points in history, been abused as a tool of economic injustice, particularly for multi-generational Black Americans. The longer the hiring line is, the greater the challenge for groups who have historically been at the back of the line. The Hiring Line initiative empowers voters to achieve an economically just immigration policy.The Hiring Line Initiative
NumbersUSA, with over 8 million supporters, is the nation’s leader focused on achieving better immigration policy. Yet, reforming America’s immigration system so that it operates for the benefit of the American people necessitates many groups working together toward a Shared Vision of sensible immigration.
