More than 2017, this year 9000 Indians were arrested for entering the US illegally, on Friday CBP informed. By paying smuggling rings, between $25,000-$50,000 per person, there is a growth in the number of Indians crossing the US-Mexico border to enter the US illegally. They are also claiming asylum for persecution, a CBP spokesperson said. The Indian Embassy in Washington has not commented on the issue yet.
