Jalandhar, July 24, 2020 (Yes Punjab News)

Nearly 33593 Indian Nationals who are detained in different Jails of United States are under removal of proceedings. This was disclosed here by Satnam Singh Chahal Executive Director North American Punjabi Association (NAPA) in a press release issued here today.

Satnam Singh ChahalChahal said that this is a matter of great concern for the Indian Community and embarrassment for the government of India that such a large number of Indian Nationals are being deported from United States. Briefing about a Freedom of Information Act request filed by North American Punjabi Association (NAPA) in July 2019, Immigration and Custom Enforcement noted that, as of Oct. 19, 2019, 3,017 Indian nationals were in ICE detention centers across the country: 2,933 were males, while 84 were females.

Similarly, at that time ICE has identified 156 Indian males in detention as convicted criminals, and noted that 86 have pending criminal charges. Six Indian women in ICE custody were deemed convicted criminals, while one had pending criminal charges.

Chahal further said those 33593 Indian Nationals under deportation procedures are detained in USA Jails are waiting their deportation in Adams County Detention Center (121),Jackson Parish Correctional Center (38),Karnes County Residential Center( 41).Lasalle Correction Center Olla (40),Winn Correctional Institute (66) and other numbers of Indian Nationals detained in other Jails are less than twenty inmates in each Jail

This is still not clear that these detainees belong to which state in India but it is said that most of them are from Punjab where illegal human smuggling is becoming a hub. This is more than unfortunate neither the states nor the Union Government is serious to overcome this buissness of illegal human smuggling.

It may be recalled that more than fifteen Punjabi youths are missing since several years due to this illegal human smuggling added Chahal.
