NumbersUSA, “NO” To Immigrant Bashing
Since its inception in 1996, NumbersUSA has been at the forefront of urging Americans to refrain from anger in the event of an increase in foreigners in the U.S. In addition, the CEO and President of Numbers USA has spoken about this matter for over a quarter-century of speeches.
This has been all over the country and recorded in videos viewed by millions of people. Roy adds that citizens should be angry at the government officials responsible for making these policies and not towards the immigrants. By having a civil discussion, NumbersUSA commits itself toward an immigration policy that contributes to society at large.
Through its civil forums: NumbersUSA Action and NumbersUSA Education and Research Foundation, it enlightens the public, leaders, and policymakers on dangers posed by high immigration numbers on environmental, economic, and American Quality of Life.
Roy Beck adds that the approach for this subject arises from a book from the re-known publisher W.W Norton & Co (New York, 1996). The book with the title: The Case against Immigration: The Moral, Economic, and Social & Environmental Reasons for Reducing Immigration Back to Traditional Levels. In the book, Roy talks about how the problems getting witnessed in the U.S arise from the number of foreigners in the country rather than who the immigrants are.
However, critics have been trying to reflect NumbersUSA as an organization that treats people as numbers rather than humans. In his defense, the CEO and President added that it’s the numbers that generate problems rather than the characteristics and characters of immigrants. The government offers equal opportunities to legal immigrants in the job market, allowing them to join the national economy.
Stereotyping people born in a foreign country as having a low vision, Roy adds. Reducing the number of immigrants entering the U.S will benefit foreign-born immigrants more than the U.S- born immigrants. They tend to work where there is a competition of job opportunities by the new wave of immigrants. It is why most of the members of Numbers USA are spouses and parents of immigrants.
