About Midwest Coalition to Reduce Immigration (MCRI)
Welcome to Midwest Coalition to Reduce Immigration (MCRI). We are a non-partisan, all-volunteer, organization dedicated to educating Americans regarding the long-term consequences of present immigration laws. The evidence is overwhelming that it is in the best interests of present and future Americans to reduce annual immigration from the present unprecedented level of 2 million immigrants (half of them illegal) a year to our historic average of 300,000 a year.
MCRI was founded in 1995 as a non-profit, charitable organization whose goal is to educate the public about the need to reduce immigration to its traditional and sustainable levels.
MCRI Executive Director
Dave Gorak, who spent nearly 30 years as a Chicago print journalist*, has been executive director of the Midwest Coalition to Reduce Immigration since 2001. A Chicago native, he worked for the Chicago Daily News and Crain's Chicago Business (CCB), a weekly business newspaper he helped found in 1978. He has helped carry the immigration reduction message through newspaper columns, letters to the editor and on national radio and television, including the "O'Reilly Factor," PBS' "Chicago Tonight," Chicago Public Radio, WGN Radio, Wisconsin Public Radio and Television, and WMTV (NBC) in Madison, WI.
