Why do African immigrants do better in the US than African Americans? I'm trying to find sources for income/educational attainment of immigrants *when they come over*, but am only finding sources of *what they have today*.

Immigrants are often absurdly ambitious. A bit of self-selection there. I served with a Ugandan-American dude in the army (who was my closest friend while I was in) named Lwasa who was one of the most ambitious people I have ever met. Sorry that I lost touch with him.
Anyway, that ambition and the lack of suffering from systemic racism since birth means that these African immigrants are often extremely successful.
