The immigration policies of the United States are callous. Someone must sponsor you or file an immigrant petition for you. Wait until the petition is approved and a visa is available in your category. Then apply for a Green Card from within the U.S. You will still need to get a medical examination, go to an interview, and wait for a decision on your application.

A green card has numerous benefits, the most important of which is that it permits the holder to live and work permanently in the United States and, after a certain period, to become a citizen of the United States. If you are married to a U.S. citizen, you can petition for citizenship after three years or five years if you are not.

Black Immigrant in the United States

The deep-rooted histories of Black people and communities in the United States. The Black immigrant experience in the United States is shaped by where people come from and what they experience when they arrive. The transatlantic slave trade brought the first enslaved Black people to the United States in 1619. It continued for nearly two hundred years, resulting in the population of enslaved people in the U.S. reaching almost 4 million people in 1860. The history of the slave trade still touches the lived experiences of Black Americans to this day.

At the same time, Black people face unique challenges compared to other immigrants, born from anti-Black discrimination and racial prejudice, which can be layered on top of their experience as immigrants. By understanding these challenges, we can begin to examine the realities Black immigrants face while also highlighting the ways Black immigrants contribute to the changing fabric of American society.

For this report, a Black immigrant is defined as any person born outside the United States to non-U.S. citizen parents and who identifies as Black or African American alone or in combination with another race or race in the American Community Survey (A.C.S.). Public data sources include data collected from 2013 through 2022.
