    The Mass Deportation Of Black Immigrants That You Haven’t Heard About


    Last month, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency quietly deported dozens of African immigrants who were trying to seek asylum in the United States.

    Sixty-three men who were unable to secure visas to stay in the country legally on humanitarian relief claims, according to a source within ICE who spoke to ThinkProgress on condition of anonymity. Activists who spoke with deported individuals said they were sent back to Nigeria, Ghana, and Senegal ...

    .......

    Leaving Zambia at the age of four, Mwewa Sumbwe, now 19, has since been unable to return because she lacks the proper legal documentation. The first person outside her family to know about her undocumented status was her high school counselor who guided her through the college application process.

    Brother Clyde, the girl that you posted a picture, MAMBWE SUMBWE, has she been sent back to her country? The article you posted said that she was not able to find correct papers to go back to Africa? So does that mean she is remaining here in The States, or is the US sending her back now?

    This article is shocking. The government does a lot of things as TOP SECRET and that they sometimes report years later. But I can see things, like foreign people in certain places and sometimes wonder if they are here secretly. I feel that the job that I worked and that fired me years ago, was like some type of government set up to allow certain foreigner come here and work and were part of some type of government agreement. I hurt because of what happened to me at that job, because I feel that they replaced me with foreigners. There were many foreigners from the Middle East and Somalia hired like all of a sudden and out of the blue. And then they hired a very racist Hispanic man from Puerto Rico. This company would fire many African Americans that had went to college and were well trained and so, I knew based on what I was seeing that I would eventually fired too.

    My Step-brother is Puerto Rican, but this man was White Hispanic. Nevertheless, Puerto Ricans have a lot of problems with racism within and without their system.

    Thank you Bro Clyde for the clarification.

    I wonder why the system comes to have immigrants over here that are undocumented, is it for their benefit? I read the article and this is news to me!
    Thank you for posting this.

    yvw ... Chevron dove,

    In this case, it didn't serve to her benefit, she's unable to go back home, if you will. Also, it caused her to live a false life with her friends, etc.

    Not so sure if the system had anything to do with her situation. I gleaned that she somehow was over looked for years by the same system you speak of.

    Being An Undocumented Black Immigrant In America Is A ‘Lonely Experience


    ... But there are also 400,000 undocumented black immigrants living in the United States who have largely been left out of the debate over immigration reform. These immigrants make up just a small fraction of the more than three million black immigrants who come mostly from the Caribbean or Northern and sub-Saharan Africa ...

    5 Fast Facts About Black Immigrants in the United States


    Recent weeks have seen a positive shift in the conversation on immigration reform, with prominent voices in both parties pushing for a pathway to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the United States. But although Latinos and Asian Americans figure prominently in the conversation, black immigrants—who comprise 8 percent of the U.S. foreign-born population—are most often left out.

    As we prepare for 2013, here are some key facts about this often-overlooked group.

    1. Black immigrants are a significant group in the United States—more than 3 million people comprising 8 percent of the U.S. foreign-born population. More than half come from the Caribbean, with the rest mostly coming from Northern and sub-Saharan Africa. A small number also come from Europe and Canada. Black immigrants account for more than one-quarter of the black population in New York, Boston, and Miami ...
