African Immigrants to the United States Are More Highly Educated Than Any Other Migrant and Native-born Ethnic Group in the Country
While the African Union Commission awaits an apology from United States’ President Donald Trump, following his reference to Africa as a `sh*thole’ his fellow conservatives have stepped forward to defend him. According to USA Today, Conservative have said in a January 12 editorial that ‘Trump was largely right, despite his poor choice of words, "Sub-Saharan nations, and perhaps Haiti — really are basket-cases" and the "lottery is one of our worst immigration programs.”
And to the racist connotation in Trumps alleged statement regarding preference for immigrants from countries like Norway, Conservative groups in the editorial argued that what Trump was "almost certainly trying to get at is that the United States would be ‘better off with immigrants with higher skills"
Perhaps nobody had told Trump and his conservative colleagues that African immigrants to the United States are more highly educated than any other migrant and native-born ethnic group including white Americans in the United States. African migrants are also more likely to be college educated than any other immigrant group. `Some 48.9 percent of all African immigrants hold a college diploma. This is slightly more than the percentage of Asian immigrants to the U.S., nearly double the rate of native-born white Americans, and nearly four times the rate of native-born African Americans.’
Once again, Africa is deliberately, negatively and falsely being represented to justify exploitative and marginalizing polices to exclude the continent and its peoples.
President Trump has come under severe global criticism for his dismissal of Haiti, El Salvador and African nations as “sh*thole countries” whose inhabitants should not be granted U.S. immigration status. While Mr. Trump has denied the allegation, the United Nations has condemned his statement as racist while the AUC is demanding for an apology.
