It is the mission of US to educate the public about the need for common sense immigration policies and reform, the need to protect and conserve our natural resources, the need to consider the impact of population growth on the environment, and the need to promote and preserve English as the common unifying language of the United States.

The mission of educating the public is conducted by US through publication of a 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 mission topics.

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.
