    Fastest growing illegals from are from India

    The FASTEST GROWING SOURCE (of Illegals in the USA) is INDIA!

    A recent federal analysis of unauthorized immigration reveals that the most rapidly growing source of illegal aliens in the US is India - the same country whose engineers and programmers are sending American workers to the unemployment lines!

    Illegal Indians represent a 125 percent jump since 2000, the largest percentage increase of any nation with more than 100,000 illegal immigrants in the United States.

    Illegal emigres defy the image
    FASTEST GROWING SOURCE? IT'S INDIA
    By Mike Swift
    Mercury News

    The Bay Area has a piece of the nation's fastest growing group of illegal immigrants. But don't assume you know who they are.

    Turning stereotypes on their head, a recent federal analysis of unauthorized immigration says the most rapidly growing source of illegal immigration is India - the same country whose engineers and programmers help power Google and other Silicon Valley companies, whose doctors heal the Bay Area's sick, and whose entrepreneurs and venture capitalists have become a force on both sides of the international date line.



    The U.S. Department of Homeland Security estimates that there are 270,000 unauthorized Indian natives in the United States - a 125 percent jump since 2000, the largest percentage increase of any nation with more than 100,000 illegal immigrants in the United States.


    The number of undocumented Indians is dwarfed by the estimated 6.6 million illegal residents from Mexico, according to the estimates from homeland security's Office of Immigration Statistics. Yet, considering the high level of education of many Indians, immigration experts say the federal report hints at a new phenomenon: a high-skilled undocumented workforce to go along with the nation's sizable numbers of low-skilled illegal workers.


    If trends continue, within three years India would trail only Mexico, El Salvador and Guatemala as a source of illegal immigration. Another national immigration expert, Jeffrey S. Passel of the Pew Hispanic Center, estimates that the number of illegal Indians is even higher, at 400,000 people.


    Virtually all entered the United States legally but violated the terms of their visas, say experts who study the nation's much maligned immigration system.


    "How do you get in? You come across the border, or you arrive here with a visa," said Lindsay Lowell, policy director for the Institute for the Study of International Migration at Georgetown University. "Indians aren't going to be walking across the border like Mexicans."



    Indians are among the most affluent ethnic groups in the United States, with a median household income that is 62 percent higher than the figure for all U.S. households.


    Santa Clara County has the largest Indian-born population, and Alameda County ranks fifth, among the nation's 3,141 counties, according to 2006 census data. But there is no way to know what share of Bay Area Indian immigrants are illegal.


    The Census Bureau does not ask people about their immigration status, and the Office of Immigration Statistics report did not provide state or local estimates. Of the 2.5 million people of Indian ancestry living in the United States, about 1 million are not U.S. citizens.


    Federal officials calculated the number of illegal immigrants by using census estimates of the total number of immigrants from individual countries, compiling the total number of legal immigrants using federal immigration and naturalization records, and then subtracting the number of legal residents from the total immigrant population to determine the number of undocumented people.


    It is certainly a minority of the local Indian community, however, and probably a very small one. Half the people of Indian ancestry living in Santa Clara County are already U.S. citizens, either by birth or naturalization, according to census data. Thousands of others are legal permanent residents, or they are here legally on student, tourist or work visas.


    Asked about the number of illegal Indians in Silicon Valley, Banjit Singh, an Indian-born taxi driver waiting for a fare at Mineta San Jose International Airport, said, "Here, there is a little bit. But you go to another city or state, like L.A. or New York, there are many illegal people." Drivers need to show proof of citizenship or legal immigration status to get a taxi certificate.

    When is America going to wake up? Thanks to our insane immigration policies, America is slowly turning into an overpopulated, second world country.

    Oh gee......but as one pro-illegal poster recently logged on to "inform" all of us, the IAs from India are far superior to even the Latino IAs this country supposedly can't live without, and are even bigger "victims" of human traffickers than Latinos too.

    My God.....how we have ever survived without all of these people for so long, is beyond me

    HOW CAN THE U.S. MISS OVER 1 MILLION ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS FROM INDIA? Silly me. Its because people in charge of our security dont care who comes in. Whether its illegal aliens from Latin America, India, China, and wherever, U.S. LAWMAKERS KEEP PUTTING OUT THE WELCOME MAT OR IGNORE THE FACT THAT THEY ARE HERE.

    Good question BB!!!

    I know that it never ceases to amaze me that the very same agencies charged with the responsibility of knowing how many people are here, never seem to know.

    Tell me......if we didn't know anything per our job responsibilities, how long would we have our jobs?

    And this crap of the the Census Bureau NOT inquiring about immigration status needs to end.

    What is UP with this not asking nonsense because it will frighten illegal aliens into not answering their door or talking to the Census takers? WHO cares!!!

    Not only do most of them not open their door and talk to the takers anyway, but the obvious is overlooked in that being illegally here does NOT entitle them to be counted for purposes of being represented within our governmental process.

    Geez.......it's all so SIMPLE, why doesn't anyone in DC get it?

    No wonder every gas station in my neighborhood is owned by Indians.

    Over on immigrationvoice.org, I've seen many, many people post messages that they had fallen out of status for one reason or another, and what should they do? Only ONCE have I seen the answer be, pack your bags and go home. You won't believe how many loopholes there are to a temporary guestworker visa.
