Numbers USA highlights their members getting snowed by politicians, failing to stop amnesty - 09/02/13

Numbers USA and I both want to scuttle comprehensive immigration reform, aka amnesty. Where we disagree is on the best way to do that. My main plan to stop amnesty is Question Authority. Under that plan, experienced people would engage politicians in debate with the goal of showing how those politicians mislead and promote bad policies. The questioners would be chosen based on their ability to...

Amnesty fans cheer GOP, Teaparty mostly ignoring immigration to oppose Obamacare (NumbersUSA, Tea Party "Patriots") - 08/20/13

... probably from FAIR. Continuing: ...Numbers USA, an anti-reform group, did post a "toolkit" prior to the recess outlining what constituents could do to voice their displeasure with reform -- including talking points for town hall meetings. All of that was happening while pro-immigration groups held well-attended rallies, such as one last week in McCarthy's district with more than 1,500 people in...

NumbersUSA, Steve King, Teaparty Patriots assist amnesty with weak immigration rally - 08/13/13

Yesterday, Numbers USA, Steve King, and the Tea Parties "Patriots" held an immigration rally in Richmond, Virginia that ended up helping those who favor an amnesty for illegal aliens.

Steve King said something questionable yet again, helping amnesty supporters....

The best way to help NumbersUSA stop amnesty (immigration, House, FAXes) - 07/14/13

Back in 2007, members of Numbers USA helped block amnesty by sending a million or so FAXes to Congress. Unfortunately, times have changed. In 2013, amnesty supporters are stronger than they were in 2007, and amnesty opponents are weaker. Those who might otherwise oppose amnesty are distracted by other, far less important issues and there are other concerns. If the tactics of NumbersUSA were...

... Republicans] are accusing those groups - Numbers USA, the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), and the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) – of masquerading as conservative.

Very likely Rep. Trey Gowdy will help push immigration amnesty - 01/08/13

... supposedly giving an A- rating by Numbers USA based on two years as a Congressman. How exactly that happened isn't clear: he's clearly an amnesty supporter. Per the article, he's supposedly opposed the Justice Department suits against Arizona and Alabama and Obama's DACA amnesty. However, on the minus side there's everything else and lots of it: 1. His call for "humanity" covers up that he's...

A minor example of why illegal immigration continues and why amnesty is being considered - 12/04/12

... ), a hit piece on Roy Beck of Numbers USA. Beck responds here. NumbersUSA does great work and I'm endlessly grateful that they're around. However, Beck's response isn't exactly how I'd do things. His response is good as far as it goes, but he's fighting a losing battle and from a defensive position: more people outside his group will see Timm's piece than Beck's response, and his response will...

*Any* form of DREAM Act would not serve the national interest - 06/11/12

... DREAM Act proposal, Roy Beck of Numbers USA says (link): "Our point has always been that a carefully crafted loophole-filled DREAM Act could be possible if it included a trigger of mandatory e-verify and an end to chain migration." Beck means the loopholes would be filled, but what would happen with any DREAM Act ("DA") is that it would be filled with loopholes now or later. The first bill might...

Lamar Smith might be weak on immigration (GOP DREAM Act?) - 12/24/10

... deal with that." * Roy Beck of Numbers USA: "We think there are a lot of issues in the Internet world that people get really excited about, and in many ways, it is a side show,” Beck said, referring specifically to cutting off benefits for illegal immigrants. “It is not as important as one thing, which is taking away the jobs. So if Lamar Smith is going to focus on keeping illegal aliens out of...

Isabel MacDonald admits Lou Dobbs didn't hire illegal aliens (The Nation) - 10/07/10

... "reporter" she is. And, Roy Beck of Numbers USA has this to say (link): I had a few quick minutes to read it before going on the radio show to comment. But it immediately looked to me like the alleged illegal workers had been hired by a company with which Dobbs had contracted. That is, they had not been hired by Dobbs himself. This was basically confirmed on the radio show when Macdonald said it...

... an interview with Roy Beck of Numbers USA, channeled the bugbear of the far-left, Karl Rove, supporting a race-based labor system. In the interview, Dave Niewert supported an anti-American system where Mexican workers would do the tough, dirty jobs while Americans would - paraphrasing - sit on their verandas watching them work, just like the hacienda system popular in countries to the south....

"Fiscal conservatives" ignore (or support) massive and illegal immigration, despite the costs - 02/12/10

From Numbers USA (link): For those of you whose primary political interest is stopping the growth of government or even shrinking it, you have to contend with national leaders who say they agree with you but who refuse to deal with immigration. They say immigration is a "social" issue that isn't related to government spending and deficit issues. They couldn't be more wrong... ...Even stranger is...

Hundreds of thousands more foreign citizens got work permits than any stimulus jobs "created or saved" - 10/30/09

The Obama administration claims (link) that the stimulus plan "saved or created" about 650,000 jobs. Meanwhile, since the plan was enacted, 1,125,000 foreign workers have gotten work permits to work in the U.S. (whether green cards or temporary).
