US Inc. (US) was founded by John H. Tanton in 1981 to educate the public about the need for common sense immigration reform, the need to protect and conserve our natural resources, the impact of population on the environment, and the need to promote and preserve English as the common, unifying language of the United States.
US’s primary focus is on the battle of ideas that it conducts through its quarterly journal The Social Contract, by underwriting scholarly research, and by publishing books, pamphlets, and articles that challenge conventional wisdom and promote long term thinking on these subjects. But US also undertakes a variety of projects that advocate for policies and/or promote goals consistent with its mission and tax-exempt purposes.
U.S. Commission on Immigration Reform Recommendations
On the immigration issue, US endorses the recommendations of the U.S. Commission on Immigration Reform, appointed by President Bill Clinton and Congress, which was chaired by the distinguished former Congresswoman and black civil rights leader, Barbara Jordan (“The Jordan Commission”). In accordance with the Jordan Commission recommendations, US supports reforms to enhance the enforcement of our immigration laws and lower the overall level of immigration, while strongly opposing the use of racial or ethnic criteria in the allocation of immigrant visas.
