Better immigration is possible

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.

Take Action and let Speaker Johnson and your Representatives know that you oppose H-2 expansions.

Congressional Testimony

“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 Reform

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.

Addressing Immigration Growth’s Impact on Environment

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
Taking It to the States

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 work with all groups who are looking for sensible immigration policy to accomplish better immigration.

Working to Redress Historical Wrongs

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
Expanding Relationships to Share Vision of Better Immigration

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. Learn more about how the Alliances Initiative forges the way for such collaboration even among “strange bedfellows”.
