They are here for the free stuff.
The same could’ve been said of the Irish, Italians and Jews in the 19th and 20th Centuries. Let’s at least give them a chance.
Here for the free stuff? Indians in the US are more productive than average Americans.
I am a naturalized American citizen born & raised in India. When I arrived here as a foreign student, I liked democrats better than republicans. Eventually it dawned on me that democrats were keeping me from moving up through middle class. Every time I received a pay raise, my tax bracket also received a raise! After acquiring citizenship, I have voted republican ever since. So it took over a decade for my transformation. Most people from India have been here for less than 20 years. If many are pro-Obama, it is probably a knee jerk reaction to vote for another minority block person.
As people mature and become prosperous, most will become more conservative. Those Indians who are here just to exploit benefits from government will continue to support democrats. But as a group, Indians are doing very well financially in US so I expect more turning republican and conservative, like myself.
In that respect Indians are not much different than other immigrants. I have to believe FDR was popular among new immigrants. When one is starting out on the bottom rung, it is very easy for one to fall for the rhetoric of democrats that they are for the little guy.
Wong. A lot of Indians DO assimilate. And as matter of fact..... Indians are the only ones who do not have a mafia-like gang. Every other ethnicity have mafia-like gangs.... and violent criminals ones at that. Starting of course with Italians, Russians, Irish, Eastern Europeans, Mexican, Blacks, Asian. Every heard of an Indian criminal gang? If any, Indians get involved only in white collared crimes.
