Who We Are

The US Immigration Reform Political Action Committee (USIRPAC) is independent and non-partisan. It is the oldest continually active political committee in the nation fighting to secure our nation’s borders and reduce immigration to the traditional levels our nation can absorb without unduly harming the interests and livelihood of American workers.

USIRPAC President Mary Lou Tanton is the wife of Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) founder and former board member John Tanton. She is a co-founder and past president of Scenic Michigan, and Vice-Chairman of US Inc., a Michigan-based educational organization that works on immigration, assimilation, conservation, and language issues.

USIRPAC board member KC McAlpin is a former Executive Director of ProEnglish, a national organization that advocates for making English the official language and former Deputy Director of FAIR. He has testified to Congress as an expert on immigration and language policy issues, and is currently President of US Inc.

USIRPAC Manager Tim Dionisopoulos cut his teeth as a reporter covering waste, fraud,  bias, and abuse in higher education for college news website Campus Reform, a project of the Leadership Institute.  He currently works in marketing and communications in the Washington DC area and has extensive experience as a writer, editor, and public speaker.

USIRPAC board member Ian Smith is an attorney and an investigative associate with the Immigration Reform Law Institute in Washington D.C. Formerly Mr. Smith pursued a career in international banking and finance in Hong Kong and Southeast Asia.

USIRPAC board member Jack Oliver is currently president of Floridians for a Sustainable Population, and the legislative director for  Floridians for Immigration Enforcement.

What Others Say About Us

“The US Immigration Reform Political Action Committee (USIRPAC) is one of the most effective organizations I know that fights for immigration control and reform by taking a direct role in the political process… Please give as generously as possible when USIRPAC requests your support…”

— Former Congressman Tom Tancredo

“Over the years, the U.S. Immigration Reform PAC has compiled an enviable record of success electing strong candidates to office… George Soros and his special interest allies are eager to roll back the progress we’ve made and keep the welcome mat down for mass immigration. We cannot let that happen. … The outcome of the battle over immigration policy and the future of our country could depend on your help today.”

— Rep. Steve King
