42 Indians detained in New Jersey, US

In the recent past, the immigration laws of American are being strictly implemented by their officials and as a result, 42 Indians who gained illegal visa have been detained in New Mexico on Friday. This isn't the first time American officials detained Indians who entered their country illegally. Earlier this month, 52 other Indians were detained at federal prison in Oregon.

Regarding this matter, Indian Embassy has released an official statement saying "we are in contact with both detention centres and we are continuously monitoring the situation." A consular from embassy has paid a visit to Oregon detention centre and he's scheduled to visit another detention centre in New Jersey.

Reportedly, the children of those parents who're kept at detention centres were also separated. Stern actions like this are being implemented by US following President Donald Trump's very controversial 'zero-tolerance' immigration policy. Most of the people who're detained belong to the state of Punjab.
