The reason behind Indians seeking asylum in the U.S. can be “unemployment or intolerance or both in India”, Satnam Singh Chahal, executive director of North American Punjabi Association (NAPA), said in a statement. As many as 22,371 Indians have sought asylum in America since 2014, according to the information obtained by the NAPA through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
