Undocumented, Black, and Unseen


Yes, as Denea Joseph for Immigration Impact  reminds us, there are undocumented black immigrants:

"I am one of approximately 619,000 undocumented, Black immigrants living in the United States. My immigration story began at seven years old, when I came to the United States from Belize without my mother, father, or siblings. The latter is a common narrative for DACA recipients like me. But the former challenges a popular misconception: that immigration is solely a Latinx issue.

I introduce myself in this way to tell you that Black immigrants do exist."
