Black Immigrants in the United States

Posted on Thu, Dec 27, 2012 at 9:57 am

Black immigrants currently make up about 8% of the foreign born population in the United States, numbering 3 million people. However, as one of the smaller immigrant groups compared to Asians and Latinos, they don't figure prominently in conversations about immigration reform. This group is extremely diverse, coming from Africa, the Caribbean, Europe, and Canada, with most arriving as legal permanent residents based on their family ties and 30% coming as refugees from Africa. The Migration Policy Institute recently published a book called Young Children of Black Immigrants in America: Changing Flows, Changing Faces to focus on this often overlooked immigrant population.

Who`s fault is that then saying that the iginmramts have better works ethnic and skills ? Should give us more Training schemes then.What are they trying to say here that Brits don't want a job but the Europeans do ? If they keep making all the companies close down then there be no jobs for anyone here in the UK never mind for Europeans people . All our big companies have been sold abroad .Stop selling US out & make instead of taking jobs.If we were You we`d` be sacked by now.
