NumbersUSA, by its founder Roy Beck, promotes policies and principles that will rapidly decline the number of immigrants coming to the United States. As expressed in its mission statement, the organization’s primary objective is to achieve “a net reduction in the number of immigrants allowed into the United States.” To that end, NumbersUSA advocates for a reduction in both legal and illegal immigration and policies and programs that will help achieve that objective.
- Education Background
Roy Beck began his career in education in 1979 as a teacher in New York City’s public schools. He became the head of the New York City Council for Educational Policy and then a member of the New York State Commission on Quality Education (NYSE). In 1985, he left the teaching profession to become director of research for The Manhattan Institute, a think tank devoted to providing conservative solutions to social problems. Roy Beck served as staff director for several congressional committees and commissions, including the House Subcommittee on Labor Standards. Roy Beck is also the author of several books and articles related to education policy.
- Immigration Background
Roy Beck was born in Brooklyn, New York. While working at The Manhattan Institute, he became interested in immigration issues. He was involved with “Project USA” – a project that aimed to promote American-born children’s interest in American history and civics through field trips to Ellis Island and other sites related to immigration policy. He also wrote a chapter on immigration policy for the book The Case for Immigration Reform during this time.
NumbersUSA advocates for a reduction in both legal and illegal immigration and policies and programs that will help achieve that objective. To accomplish this goal, NumbersUSA has created several programs and campaigns to educate the public about the adverse effects of immigration on the United States. The organization also works to educate members of Congress about the importance of immigration reduction to make sure that they are informed and can vote in favor of policies favorable to the organization’s goals.
