Unemployment and an Uncertain Future

“In 2011, Black immigrants had the highest unemployment rate — 12.5 percent — of any foreign-born group in the United States. Proposed immigration reforms such as reductions in family-based admissions and elimination of the diversity visa lottery could affect the flow of black immigrants to the United States, cutting off all legal means of entry into the country,” writes the Center for American Progress.
