Indians in US
It appears that words and deeds of newly elected US President Donald Trump have induced racist Americans to attack immigrants in that country and those serving their nation with H1-B visas.
There are also reports that border security officers and other immigration officials have been conducting long and unwarranted inquiries with even legal immigrants, with an intention to harass them. It is alleged that all of this is happening with tacit support of the new government.
It is time that Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who boasts of having a good relationship with Trump, took up the case of the Indian immigrants and other professionals and sought protection for their lives from such racist hooligans. It is also advisable that Indians in the US take utmost care and avoid any altercation with anyone, particularly in public places and various leisure joints. These are bad times in the US.
