    NumbersUSA Urges Iowans to Consider Immigration — Give Cruz, Santorum, Trump Top Rati

    NumbersUSA Urges Iowans to Consider Immigration — Give Cruz, Santorum, Trump Top Ratings

    Numbers USA is reminding voters where the presidential candidates stand on immigration ahead of next week’s Iowa caucuses.

    The immigration reduction group has rated all the candidates — both Republicans and Democrats — on a scale of F- through A+ according to where they stand on immigration issues like amnesty, immigration reduction, birthright citizenship, interior enforcement, and E-Verify.

    “Regardless of whom you support, I hope you will be sure to attend one of the caucuses and keep immigration issues in the middle of the discussions,” NumbersUSA president Roy Beck wrote in an email to 40,000 Iowa NumbersUSA network members.

    The group’s most recent, regularly updated ratings have Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rick Santorum with “A”s, the best rating of all 14 candidates.

    Donald Trump is a close third with an “A-“.

    The rankings drop precipitously after Cruz, Santorum and Trump. Chis Christie has the next best rating with a “C+”. Ben Carson and Mike Huckabee both had “C” ratings. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and Jeb Bush received “C-“s.

    The remainder of the GOP presidential field were in the “D” range. Carly Fiorina got a “D+”. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and John Kasich both received “Ds.”

    All the Democratic candidates for president were in the “F”s. While Hillary Clinton received an “F,” both Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Martin O’Malley received “F-“s.

    NumbersUSA stresses that while it grades the candidates it does not endorse.

    Instead the group’s scorecard considers 10 immigration issues and allows the user to focus on any or all of the key matters, specifically: “Mandate E-Verify-plus, punish business violators,” “Prevent illegal border entries & surges,” “Implement Interior Enforcement,” “Finish entry-exit system to track visa overstays,” “End automatic birthright citizenship,” “Oppose work permits for illegal immigrants,” “Support overall reduction in annual immigration,” “End chain migration,” “Reduce unfair work-visa competition,” and “End visa lottery.”

    Beck, in his message to voters, urged that they consider the entirety of the immigration issue.

    “There is a tendency for people to focus almost entirely on amnesty issues,” Beck wrote. “But we feel there are nine other very important immigration policies that are having — and will continue to have — a huge impact on our quality of life in America. I hope you will take a look at all 10 issues and the ratings on those.”

    “Thanks for all you can do to push politicians to give us a controlled immigration policy in the national interest,” Beck concluded.

    Has anyone figured out why Rick Santorum isn't getting any traction?
