Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi


WASHINGTON, DC – According to the latest US census figures, Indian Americans who now comprise over four million people and makeup 1.3 percent of the total US population are an increasingly vital part of the cultural and economic success of the country.

Illinois Rep Raja Krishnamoorthi said: This community, like many other communities before them, is increasingly assimilating, increasingly establishing its financial and professional success. So naturally, it looks to determine how it can also give back to the communities in which it resides.”

The politician also added: “Today, in the US, almost 80 percent of Indian Americans have a college degree, possess the highest per capita income of any community, have a major presence in highly competitive fields, including computer science and finance and almost 10 percent of American doctors are of Indian descent.”
