Who We Are

FAIR, the Federation for American Immigration Reform is a non-profit, non-partisan organization of concerned individuals who believe that our immigration laws must be reformed to better serve the needs of current and future generations.

With a support base that includes nearly 50 private foundations and over 1.3 million diverse members and supporters, FAIR is free of party loyalties and special interest connections.

For more than 35 years, FAIR has been leading the call for immigration reform by offering and advocating solutions that help reduce the harmful impact of uncontrolled immigration on national security, jobs, education, health care, and our environment.

Our Mission

In all that we do, our goal is to educate and increase public awareness of immigration issues, present solutions, hold our leaders accountable for answers, and ensure the public's voice is heard.

FAIR seeks to reduce overall immigration to a level that is more manageable and which more closely reflects past policy. Reducing legal immigration from well over one million presently, to 300,000 a year over a sustained period will allow America to more sensibly manage its growth, address its environmental needs, and maintain a high quality of life.

To make that happen, we work for policies that put the interests of American citizens ahead of big business and special interests demands.

What We Believe

America has reached a point where perpetual growth cannot realistically continue within limited space. FAIR believes that without common sense limitations on immigration and the resulting population growth, virtually every social cause is a lost cause.

We understand that immigration policy involves sensitive and emotional issues, and we believe in respecting the basic human rights and the dignity of all involved. We also believe that immigration policies should not be based on favoritism toward, or discrimination against any person on the basis of race, creed, color, religion, gender or nationality.
