NumbersUSA is a non-profit organization founded by Roy Beck in 1996, which advocates for reducing the size of U.S. and world populations of humans to improve resource sharing and environmental quality while helping both humans and other species flourish.
It is a leading member of the national network of groups fighting for a reduction in immigration by influencing the United States Congress to support immigration reduction and stop the inflow of persons into the country who require costly services and tend to compete with U.S. citizens for jobs. These include illegal aliens, persons here legally for extended periods, asylum seekers, refugees, and other temporary visitors.
NumbersUSA’s methods include educating the public about the consequences of immigration increases and lobbying members of Congress to support immigration reduction. The organization receives funding from various sources, including some grassroots donations and foundations.
The organization maintains a website with local chapters, which lobbies Congressional members and supporters. It also has published books and publications on immigration reduction.
The organization’s website is largely an interactive forum where visitors can post messages and use news articles distributed by email, with the site’s owner providing information about its activities. The website has several articles providing evidence for the effect of immigration on wages, the environment, and other issues, including the impact on population growth.
NumbersUSA’s efforts to balance immigration numbers have gained recognition in the media. The columns on the organization’s website are generally authored by Roy Beck or the organization’s staff writers. They advocate for reducing immigration into the United States, citing economic or environmental reasons for cutting down on migration flows. Roy Beck, NumbersUSA founder, and other staff writers have authored articles in politics and economics magazines and newspapers.
NumbersUSA supports immigration reduction through lobbying Congress and has lobbied many members of the U.S. Congress to support immigration reduction. NumbersUSA was a key player in changing the U.S. strategy for controlling illegal immigration, moving from border control to supporting legislation eliminating virtually all visa categories for temporary visitors and increasing border security measures.
NumbersUSA has been sparking education on other platforms, including Facebook and Instagram, and Twitter. The organization has been honored with various awards and accolades.
