The death of an Indian man who fell while attempting to scale a Texas border wall has brought attention to illegal immigration from India to US (United States), which has seen a sudden increase along the border with Mexico in the last two months.
According to data provided by the American government, the number of Indians caught by the US Border Patrol crossing the Mexican border in October and November was 4,297, up from 1,426 the previous year and 16,236 for the entire fiscal year that ended in September.
Since last year, the total number of Indians detained by US authorities on the border and elsewhere has more than doubled.
According to data from Customs and Border Protection (CBP), US authorities found 63,927 Indians who had entered the country illegally during the 2021-22 fiscal year that ended in September. This is a 109% increase from the 30,662 Indians they found during the previous fiscal year.
In just the last two months, a total of 13,655 illegal immigration from India to US were caught compared to 6,865 during those two months in 2021, the data showed.
According to the agency, there were only 19,883 Indians illegally present in the United States who were apprehended by the CBP during the fiscal year 2019-20.
Since President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris were elected, they have been tasked with halting the flow of migrants from Latin America. Indians are just one segment of the phenomenon of illegal migration to the United States.
Despite Harris’ assertion that the border is “secure,” US authorities recorded 2.77 million encounters with individuals of various nationalities illegally in the US during the fiscal year that ended in September, an increase of 41% from the 1.96 million encounters recorded during the prior period.
There were only 646,822 encounters in 2019-20. Even though it vehemently opposed it on Tuesday, the Supreme Court granted a reprieve to the Biden administration, which had been struggling to deal with the influx of illegal immigrants at the southern border.
Biden had kept set up a standard founded as a wellbeing measure due to the Coronavirus pandemic by his ancestor Donald Trump to return Latin Americans from most nations to Mexico when they are gotten however denied it in May under tension from his Progressive faction’s left.
In opposition, Republican state officials filed a lawsuit, and the Supreme Court delayed the revocation until February to prevent the anticipated rush to the border.
Because Mexico will not take back Indians or people from outside Latin America, Title 42 is not applied.
Those who entered the country legally but overstayed their visas, making their presence in the country illegal, are not included in the data, and the illegal migration numbers only include those who were caught by the CBP. Several others would have successfully evaded authorities.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) reports that the number of Indians suspected of overstaying their visas increased from 13,203 the year before to 14,389 in the most recent fiscal year for which data are available.
In the past two months, 84 Indians have been apprehended on the northern border with Canada, where a family of four Indians was discovered frozen to death in January about a dozen meters from the US border.
There were 237 Indians captured there during the US fiscal year that ended in September, compared to 42 and 129 the previous year.
The majority of people caught by US authorities are released with a notice to appear in front of an immigration judge and little or no follow-up, and only a few are held.
It was not possible to obtain a breakdown of the CBP’s treatment of those caught by nationality.
34,230 Indian asylum cases were pending before Immigration courts last month, according to information from the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC), a Syracuse University database.
Fear of religious or political persecution, domestic violence, and threats based on sexual orientation are all valid grounds for asylum requests, but applicants must demonstrate this to a judge.
As of the most recent fiscal year for which data are available from the Homeland Security Department, the number of Indians granted asylum was 1,337, down from 2,256 the year before.
The Department reports that 1,302 Indians were granted asylum between 2017 and 2018. There was no breakdown of the reasons for granting asylum. The Punjabi-speaking population, which could be from India, Pakistan, or somewhere else, was 21,961 at the time of TRAC’s breakdown.
There were 6,770 people who spoke Hindi, 6,315 people who spoke Bengali, who could have come from India, Bangladesh, or another country, and 376 people who spoke Tamil, who could have come from India, Sri Lanka, or another country.
On January 19, Jagdishkumar Patel, 39, his 37-year-old wife Vaishaliben, their 11-year-old daughter Vihangi, and their 3-year-old son Dharmik were discovered frozen to death on the border with Canada.
