    On a recent visit to the federal prison in Victorville, U.S. Rep. Mark Takano was caught by surprise. Of the hundreds of immigrants detained there, he learned, possibly 40% had traveled from India seeking asylum.



    The Riverside Democrat had expected to see a high concentration of Central American detainees, many of them fathers who had been separated from their children.



    A growing number of California detainees are Indians crossing through Mexico to seek asylum

    You don't think it is ? :confused:

    And if it is asylum that they're looking to get away from their "oppressors" in India, and they're coming here through Mexico, why not just stay in Mexico ? Or someplace much closer to India than the US ?

    It is simple, we have more room here. India is over crowded.

    Indians in America are a wonderful community ... instead of making them come through the back door, we should be bringing them here with First Class tickets.
