CALIFORNIA, U.S. May 29, 2001: All across the United States from coast to coast and from North to South, the story is the same, the Asian Immigrant population has doubled in America since 1990. The following data from the U.S. Census Bureau was released this week and focused specifically on the Asian population in various states. Leading the way, the state of California boasts the highest population of Asian Indians with 314,819. Following in the next four places for Asian Indians to live in are the states of New York, New Jersey, Texas, and Illinois. States such as Wyoming, Montana, and Hawaii have attracted the least amount of East Indian Asian immigrants. Of the total Asian group nationwide, East Indians now predominate in 19 U.S. states and with this increase Indians are now looking for representation in the political arena. Still trailing the Chinese (2,432,585) and the Filipinos (1,850,314) across the land with a total population of 1,678,765, Indians were the fastest growing immigrant population in the last ten years.
