NumbersUSA is a non-profit, non-partisan research and educational organization dedicated to educating the public on immigration issues. We provide factual information about current events relating to immigration through policy analysis & advocacy. They reduce immigration into the United States by promoting policies that make our country stronger, safer and more prosperous for American citizens and legal immigrants.
The Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) is an independent, non-partisan, non-profit research organization founded in 1985. It conducts research and public policy analysis on issues related to U.S. immigration policy. NumbersUSA also promotes the view that the United States should adopt a system of guest worker programs to allow employers to hire foreign workers temporarily while U.S. workers are looking for jobs.
Immigrants are coming to America because they want opportunity for their families and themselves. They come here legally and illegally but we should welcome them all as fellow Americans. There are now about 11 million illegal aliens living in the United States. This population has increased by almost 50 percent since 2000. If current trends continue, there will be 20 million illegal aliens living in this country by 2050.
This does not include the additional costs associated with providing social services such as health care, welfare, law enforcement, education, roads, etc., which must be borne by U.S. taxpayers. In addition, the strain placed upon state and local resources due to the presence of large numbers of illegal aliens places an unfair burden on U.S. taxpayers and residents. NumbersUSA believe that such programs would help alleviate unemployment among U.S. workers.
This means that if current levels of illegal immigration continued, within two decades, there would be approximately twice as many foreign nationals living in the United States as live in Canada. Illegal immigration costs the nation billions of dollars each year. The cost of educating these individuals who have crossed our borders without permission is at least $10 billion annually.
