    Kenyans In Top Five of African Immigrants To US
    About 87,000 Kenyans now live in the United States as immigrants, a Washington-based research institute calculates.

    That's less than the figures offered by some members of the Kenyan community in the US, who have made estimates of 200,000 or higher.

    But the number of Kenyans is more than four times the total of immigrants to the US from either Uganda (21,000) or Tanzania (18,000), according to a study last month by the non-governmental Migration Policy Institute.

    [h=3]mmigrants To US[/h]
    About 87,000 Kenyans now live in the United States as immigrants, a Washington-based research institute calculates.

    That’s less than the figures offered by some members of the Kenyan community in the US, who have made estimates of 200,000 or higher.

    But the number of Kenyans is more than four times the total of immigrants to the US from either Uganda (21,000) or Tanzania (18,000), according to a study last month by the non-governmental Migration Policy Institute.


    Kenya ranks fifth as an African country of origin for immigrants to the United States, accounting for nearly 6 per cent of the 1.5 million Africans living in the US as of 2009.

    That number does not include students who hold valid visas. But it does include immigrants who lack legal authorisation to be in the United States.

    Kristen McCabe, author of the institute’s study on African immigration, says she is confident that the estimate of 87,000 Kenyans comes close to the actual number now in the US, legally and illegally.

    Ms McCabe’s calculations are based on the US government’s 2010 census, which, she says, reflects “a lot of outreach to promote participation, regardless of legal status.”
    According to a study earlier this year by the Migration Policy Institute, 21 per cent of black African immigrants in the US are “unauthorised,” compared with 30 per cent of all the immigrants now in the US.

    Of the 7,421 Kenyan immigrants who came to the United States last year, 44 per cent were admitted because they already had family members in the US. About 31 per cent came as a result of winning the green-card lottery, while 19 per cent entered because they had been given refugee or asylum status. Six per cent were sponsored by employers or gained entry for other reasons, according to the study published last month.

    Nigeria is identified as the source of the largest number of Africans in the US at 210,000. Ethiopia, with 148,000 immigrants, ranks as the leading country of origin in East Africa.

    Migration to the United States from Africa is increasing rapidly, the institute points out. In 1980, there were 200,000 non-student Africans in the US — one-seventh the total today. Only about 2,000 Kenyans were living in the US 30 years ago. Africans still account for only about 4 per cent of all immigrants living in the US.

    Kama hii ripoti ya kusikitisha kuhusu watani wetu wanaoongoza kukimbilia USA na kufanya madudu:

    In Summary
    • Oluoch jumped bail in 2007 and escaped to Kenya amid claims of abusing man, 90



    A Kenyan wanted in the US for assault has been arrested, four years after jumping bail.


    Ms Anastacia Oluoch, 58, has been on the run since July 31, 2007, when she was bailed by a Baltimore court for abusing a 90-year-old American.

    Trial magistrate Lucy Nyambura heard that Ms Oluoch is wanted for trial in Baltimore for assault, reckless endangerment and abuse of a vulnerable adult.


    State counsel Victor Mule opposed her application for bail, saying she could not be trusted to turn up for the hearing.

    The officer said the suspect was only in court to be informed of the reason for her arrest pending extradition to the US.


    But her lawyer Gilbert Mungu said he would oppose the extradition.


    Ms Oluoch allegedly committed the crime when she was employed to take care of Mr John Taylor in Baltimore, US. Mr Taylor was living with his daughter.

    It's a good thing for any developing country to have a large number of citizens in diaspora

    Ndoto ya Nyerere kwamba Africa ni moja na dunia ni kijiji na Imani ya TANU kwamba binadamu ana uhuru wa kwenda popote ili mradi havunji sheria inaunga mkono suala la diaspora. Suala zima la maendeleo binafsi na hatimaye ya nchi yanaelezewa na jinsi wazawa wanaoishi nje ya nchi zao wanavyoweza kuwainua ndugu na jamaa zao na hatimae taifa kwa kutuma fedha,vifaa na zana nyinginezo kuwekeza kwenye nchi zao.
    Tunayo mifano ya watu wa nchi mbalimbali walioshindwa kuwekeza kwao aidha kwenye familia na ndugu zao jinsi waliyoaibika baada ya kufa pale waliporudishwa makwao na wasidikizaji wakapigwa na mshangao juu ya hali waliyoikuta wakilinganisha na matanuzi ya marehemu huko ughaibuni.
    Waliojisetiri waliamua kuzikwa hukohuko ugenini.
    Tutafakari na kuchukua changamoto la kujitafutia maendeleo binafsi (kama yapo ) na pia kuwainua jamaa na ndugu zetu ambao hatimaye watasukuma maendeleo ya nchi..
    Mawazo mbadala kwamba waliohama nchi wanakimbia hali ngumu pia yanazungumzika..Nani atakeyeona mvua ya mawe unakuja akabaki mbugani.. Yumkini mchungaji mwaminifu atatafuta pa kuepuka gharika. DAIMA MBELE!!!
