Deaths of Indian family at US-Canada border put visa sales under scrutiny
The Guardian: "The news of Patel’s death has been greeted by a nervousness that the booming local business of facilitating visas to the US and Canada is now under international scrutiny. Agents, who charge vast sums, help people obtain visitor visas or student visas at dubious institutions in Canada, which they then illegally overstay. For those wishing to enter the US, the usual route is to go via Mexico or Canada and illegally cross the land border."
The solution is increasing the penalties for visa fraud, securing the border, and the Indian government mobilizing the underutilized amongst its potential labor force.
