A South Asian community group has found that the population of Indian-origin people in America grew by 38 per cent in seven years. South Asian Americans Leading Together (SAALT) also found that there are at least 630,000 Indians who are undocumented, a 72 per cent increase since 2010. Nearly 250,000 Indians overstayed their visa in 2016.
Even the Nepalese community grew the most, at a rate of 206.6 per cent since 2010, followed by Indian (38 per cent), Bhutanese (38 per cent), Pakistani (33 per cent), Bangladeshi (26 per cent) and Sri Lankan populations (15 per cent).
Currently, there are at least 4,300 active South Asian Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients. As of August 2018, there are approximately 2,550 active Indian DACA recipients. The demographic snapshot is based primarily on Census 2010 and the 2017 American Community Survey.
