We have seen immense attack to the U.S. Immigration System by the current Administration over the last four years, and these attacks became more vigorous in the last 3-4 months. Although we can all agree that the U.S. immigration laws are overdue for reform, it is fortunate that the current administration was not able to change any existing laws and make it even harder for immigrants. The current administration was very aware that they would not get any support from Congress, so they attempted to use options not requiring any Congressional approval to make changes to existing processes.
Public service is innate to Indian American culture. Most Indian Americans are active in public service via their community service and through active participation in various nonprofit and charity organizations.

Indian Americans have been forebearers of innovation in the fields of health care, technology and education. Hence a natural progression can be seen now in the landscape of the elected body.
