    Hi friends,

    Following is a forwaded message I received from one of my old classmate about Some Indian Facts of America

    1790 The first known Indian immigrant entered the United States as a maritime worker.

    1917 The Barred Zone Act passes in Congress through two-thirds majority. Indians, are barred from immigrating to the U.S.

    1923 The US Supreme Court rules that people from India (at the time, British India) are aliens ineligible for citizenship in United States

    TODAY:
    - Asian Indian population in the United States grew from almost 1,678,000 in 2000 to 2,319,000 in 2005
    - A growth rate of 38%, the highest for any Asian American community
    - Americans are the third largest Asian American ethnic group
    - Indian Americans have the highest educational qualifications of all national origin groups in the United States
