Immigration has long had a profound effect on the American identity. Asian Indians constitute one of the many immigrant groups in the country. However, unlike many other ethnic groups, their experience is largely unchronicled and thus goes unexplored in schools. Through this issue of Jano, teens will become familiar with the history of Asian Indian immigration in the U.S., in all its phases, starting in the late 19th century, extending to the passage of the 1965 Luce-Celler Immigration and Naturalization Act, and reaching up to the present day. Teens will come to understand the social, economic and political factors that have affected Indian immigration to the U.S. at various points in the past 115 years. This issue focuses on the particular experience of Asian Indians and in so doing sheds light on the nation’s broader immigrant heritage.
