Media Ignores Crisis Of Indian Illegal Immigrants
By Jennifer G. Hickey

As the media floods the airwaves with coverage of Central American migrants, they have all but ignored a major development along the Southern border – the massive increase in illegal aliens coming from India. While Indians still comprise the largest population of H-1B visa holders, they now represent the fastest-growing illegal immigrant group in the nation. According to data from Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearing House (TRAC), in the current fiscal year, 3,752 Indian nationals were arrested by Border Patrol agents – a figure that already surpassed the total number arrested in FY2017 (2,055) and FY2016 (3,398).
