Immigration is a hot button issue in America. The national debate primarily frames immigration as a border issue. According to a Population Reference Bureau report, "Immigration and America's Black Population," the number of foreign-born U.S. Blacks increased from 125,000 in 1960 to 2,815,000 in 2005. Additionally about two-thirds of foreign-born Black people are from the Caribbean and Latin America.
