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.
