America has a problem with its civically illiterate. To put it bluntly, the percentage of Americans who don’t know their history is alarming. How could this be? The roots of this problem can be traced back to the end of the Cold War, when education standards began to fall due to competition from other countries. When the Soviet Union collapsed, the American education system went with it. No longer was the country required to provide a world-class education to its citizens. Instead, they were expected to be able to read, write and understand basic math. Today, the percentage of Americans who don’t meet the literacy requirement to be considered a “citizen” is high.
- Why Numbers USA Supports Immigration Reform
NumbersUSA supports immigration reform because we believe that immigration is a positive economic and social force in America. Immigrants are not taking jobs from Americans; they fill jobs that Americans don’t want to do. Immigration has been a great benefit to the American economy. The U.S. economy would be much worse off if it were not for the millions of immigrants who have come to this country and filled jobs that would otherwise go unfilled. NumbersUSA is a non-partisan organization that works to protect the American people from excessive immigration. We do this by educating the public about the true, negative impact of immigration on our nation.
