NO IMMIGRANT BASHING:
Nothing about working on this issue should be construed as advocating hostile actions or feelings toward immigrant Americans. The policy issue is about choosing the right numerical level for future immigration. (See our philosophy and stance on this at: http://www.numbersusa.com/about/nobashing.html).

OUR GOAL:
NumbersUSA’s goal is to reduce annual legal and illegal immigration to more traditional numerical levels by carrying out the immigration-reduction recommendations from two national commissions of the 1990s: the bi-partisan U.S. Commission on Immigration Reform and the the President's Council on Sustainable Development.

Please keep in mind that your goals do not have to be the same as our goals to use the NumbersUSA action tools. You may pick and choose those immigration-reduction actions that fit your own wishes.

WHO WE ARE:
NumbersUSA Education and Research Foundation is a non-profit, non-partisan immigration-reduction organization. We conduct research on the impacts of high numerical levels of immigration and educate the public, opinion leaders, and policy makers on the results of those and other studies. Undergirding our work are beliefs in environmental sustainability, economic justice, the rule of law and individual liberty, and opposition to federal immigration policies that threaten these values by forcing massive U.S. population growth.

If you have any questions about NumbersUSA or would otherwise like to communicate with us, please send an e-mail to info@numbersusa.com.

We answer all e-mails.

Survey Questions, Answers and Results

QUESTION: Congress has set federal immigration policy to bring more than 1.2 million foreign workers and their families into the country next year. What best describes what you think should happen next year?

ANSWER: REDUCE IMMIGRATION

bullet27%---Curtail immigration -- by perhaps up to half -- during high unemployment.
bullet23%---Limit immigration to spouses, children and workers who take jobs that no American is available for.
bullet34%---Immigration should be cut as close to zero as possible.

ANSWER: KEEP IMMIGRATION HIGH

bullet16%---The policy is good; immigrant workers bring fresh ideas, create new job
  QUESTION: Congress is considering additional bills to create new guest foreign worker programs to respond to what proponents call a serious labor shortage in the U.S. What kind of guest worker program do you support?

ANSWER: NONE OR LIMITED

bullet42% -- Limit number who rotate only after thorough search for American workers fails.
bullet39% -- We don't need foreign guest workers; we have a labor surplus, not a shortage.

ANSWER: YES

bullet9% -- Allow all foreign workers who can find jobs; let them become U.S. citizens.
bullet10% -- Bring as many as needed by employers who say no Americans available; rotate home.
QUESTION: Congress is considering granting amnesty and permanent residency to 1-10 million illegal immigrants currently working and living in the U.S. What should be done about these foreign workers who lack authorization to be here?

ANSWER: NO

bullet48% -- Deport them.

bullet22% -- A close friend or neighbor is one.

ANSWER: NOT CLOSE

bullet38% -- Nobody I really know is having trouble finding a job.
QUESTION: How important is it for the federal government to adopt policies that would make it more likely for those 18 million Americans to find a job?
