Thousands of India illegally entering US

Thousands of India illegally entering USThe Los Angeles Times has called ‘a mysterious and rapidly growing human-smuggling pipeline’ to illegal entry of thousands of Indians through Mexico last year.

Most of these immigrants are young men from poor villages of Punjab or Gujarat states and are fleeing religious and political persecution according to a report from Harlingen on the southern tip of Texas.

From in.news.yahoo.com:

More than 1,600 Indians have been caught since the influx began early last year, while an undetermined number, perhaps thousands, are believed to have sneaked through undetected, according to US border authorities, it said.

Hundreds have been released on their own recognizance or after posting bond, the Times said. ‘They catch buses or go to local Indian-run motels before flying north for the final leg of their months-long journeys.’

The trend has caught the attention of anti-terrorism officials because of the pipeline’s efficiency in delivering to America’s doorstep large numbers of people from a troubled region.

Authorities interview the immigrants, most of whom arrive with no documents, to ensure that people from neighbouring Pakistan or Middle Eastern countries are not slipping through.

But there is no evidence that terrorists are using the smuggling pipeline, FBI and Department of Homeland Security officials were quoted as saying.

Kumar Kibble, deputy director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE was quoted as saying by the Times, says migration is the ‘most significant’ human-smuggling trend being tracked by US authorities.
