A 20th Century Immigration System Harms Both India and United States

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in News And Media

Millions of professionals from India have immigrated to every part of the world. These highly-skilled individuals have worked hard to make meaningful contributions to their countries of residence and have therefore become “successful Pravasi Bharatiya”! However, the term “successful” is subjective. Especially in the case of United States of America, the success of Indian immigrants […]

Let’s Stop Discriminating Against Immigrants From Populous Nations

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in News And Media, Uncategorized

Immigrants from India waiting to receive residency in the United States may die before they receive their green cards. The line is disproportionately long for Indians because the law discriminates against immigrants from populous countries, skewing the immigration flow to the benefit of immigrants from countries with fewer people.
