Top 10 African Countries With Highest Number of Citizens Deported From the U.S.

President Donald Trump has made clear his stance to deport all undocumented immigrants from the United States and Africans have suffered the most since he assumed office.

A year after Trump took office, the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) reported a drop in the total number of deportations from 240,255 in 2016 to 226,119 in 2017. However, it is a different story for African immigrants.

The number of Africans sent back home has more than doubled from the previous year. Among the top 10 African countries on ICE’s list, deportations were as high as 140%. 756 people from these countries were deported in 2016 and the number jumped to 1815 people in 2017.

The top African country is the 13th on the ICE global list of removals by country or citizenship. The top country globally is Mexico followed by Guatemala and Honduras.
