MPs appeal to stop deportation of two lakh Indians in America

36 MPs letter to Home Security Department

Washington: Prominent US lawmakers have called on the Biden administration to take steps to stop the deportation of more than two million young Indians. These two lakh youth are mostly children of H-1B visa holders.

36 lawmakers, led by prominent US lawmaker Deborah Ross and Indian-American lawmaker Dr. Bera, have written to Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayox. The letter requested that these Indian youth, who have spent their childhood and adolescence in the United States, settle in the United States as dependents. This young man is known as a document dreamer.

The letter urges youths facing extradition to stay in the United States. Trump canceled the DAC program launched by Obama to prevent deportation to the United States as a minor. In the US, children still dependent on their parents’ visas are young and their parents have been waiting for green cards for years.
