Around a week after some 100 students who were heading for US varsities were deported from the US, another 20 student from Telangana state were stopped at Chicago airport by immigration officials and are being sent back to India.
Responding to the situation the External Affairs Ministry issued a notice to aspiring US bound students to postpone their travel until the issue is resolved, but the students went ahead with their travel plans.
A report was also released by the FBI, warning the government about the large number of students entering the US not for the studies, but to work at part time jobs, which made the scrutiny at the immigration counter stricter. In fact many students from the Telugu states lacked basic skills when answering official questions at immigration.
The Telugu Association of North America is trying to resolve the problems of the students in the US, and has even offered to provide support regarding any immigration problems.
