South Asian and Undocumented?

Among the 11 million undocumented people living in this country are South Asians, including those from Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

Many are students who seek to go to college, spend time with friends and family, and pursue their professional interests. In fact, there were approximately 240,000 undocumented Indians in 2011 alone, making India the seventh highest country of origin for undocumented individuals in the United States. If you are undocumented and South Asian, you might be eligible for assistance under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy.
