The pendulum swing of the campaign debate on immigration issues has largely centered on either denouncing undocumented Latino immigrants or getting their eligible family members to take to the polls on Election Day. It seems unsurprising that the conversation heavily focuses on Latinos — after all, 59 percent of the 11.3 million undocumented population are from Mexico.
But there are also 400,000 undocumented black immigrants living in the United States who have largely been left out of the debate over immigration reform. These immigrants make up just a small fraction of the more than three million black immigrants who come mostly from the Caribbean or Northern and sub-Saharan Africa.

They probably like being under the radar, with little to no attention about their situation.

It's nice that they can fly under the radar. But this is another good example of just how out of control illegal immigration has become.

If they're so lonely, why don't they go back home?

Nice country, this America--where illegal aliens only have to worry about how lonely they are.

It's true. I can't think of a single benefit illegals DON'T get. FREE. I mean, free to them. Courtesy of the American taxpayer.

Never heard any African or other African descended recent American speak about any lonely experience of those who are illegal. Most of the ethnic groups tend to stick together. Not surprised that ths article was written by someone of a different background. Although as someone who is Asian and remains through DACA, this may reflects her experience too...

It seems as if being an illegal alien or illegal immigrant has acquired a special club meaning. Many people depend on illegal immigration due to political expediency.

Also it is mighty interesting how these illegal immigrant demand certain rights or privileges or not to deport them, yet in the countries that they come from, they have even stricter immigration laws and do worse and more harmful things to illegal immigrants in their respective nations of origins.

It is pure hypocrisy.

As for Dominicans not being considered black for La Raza or other groups, that is probably a matter of political expediency and (in)convenience.
