"US Targets More Than 200 Indians For Deportation"

According to India's foreign minister, the Trump administration recently informed India that it is targeting for deportation more than 270 Indian nationals living in the United States illegally.

 

 

During a question period in the upper house of India's Parliament on Thursday, Sushma Swaraj said that the government of India has asked for further  information on the 271-name list from the United States before allowing their deportation.

 

She said, "Until we verify the nationalities of these people, how do we believe the claims in the list?" 

 

She added, "We have asked the U.S. government for more information and told them that we will give an emergency certificate for their deportation only after establishing their Indian nationalities."
