Know The Truth About Indian Immigrants Crossing U.S. Borders

WFY BUREAU: In the previous year, there were approximately 97,000 encounters with Indian migrants in the United States, a roughly fivefold increase from the same time in 2019 to 2020, when there were nearly 20,000.

A record number of undocumented Indian immigrants are entering the country on foot, according to data released by Customs and Border Protection. The migration trend that had been increasing gradually has abruptly taken a startling turn.

Between October 2022 and September of the fiscal year 2023, the United States detained, expelled, or denied admission to 96,917 Indians without proper documentation. It represents a fivefold increase over the same time from 2019 to 2020, when there were only 19,883.

Immigration experts believe numerous reasons are at work, including an overall increase in worldwide migration since the epidemic, oppression of minority populations in India, smugglers’ employment of increasingly sophisticated and in-demand methods of transporting individuals to America, and severe visa backlogs.

The number of illegal Indians in the United States has increased since borders reopened following COVID, with 30,662 encountered in fiscal year 2021 and 63,927 in fiscal year 2022.

Of the roughly 97,000 interactions this year, 30,010 occurred at the Canadian border and 41,770 at the southern border.

Many said that the Southern border has recently evolved into a hub for migrants seeking to enter the United States as soon as possible from all around the globe.

Some others questioned why someone would wait in India for a visitor’s visa when they could go to the southern border more quickly in this manner.
