Which Group Wanted to Stop Immigration?

One of the most powerful groups in the fight against immigration is NumbersUSA, according to Southern Poverty Law Center. Other very active and vocal groups include American Immigration Control Foundation, Federation for American Immigration Reform and ProjectUSA.

The leader of NumbersUSA, Roy Beck, was profiled in The Atlantic by Molly Ball, and his opinions were made loud and clear. He insists his group is working for an environmentally stable America, not a racist one. NumbersUSA, while not overtly racist in its actions, is closely affiliated with other less mainstream groups such as the Federation for American Immigration Reform, according to Ms. Ball. The SPLC has labeled FAIR as a hate group for its actions and opinions.
