11 Jan US does not worry about connections or status while booking a person for the violation of law.
Devayani issue fired spat between india and US goes on to the reporting to Indian diplomat. The maid in fact was underpaid as per us standards. In general the maids of Indian origin fly off the Amma cage to take refuge in a white man who is looking for a wife of Asian origin- secure path for citizenship. The episode showed up in Indian media due to the Devayani ‘s status and the spat that followed.
Ultimately the issue will go into thin air.
The bottom line is that the enforcement officers in the US does not worry about connections or status while booking a person for the violation of law.
India is different where colour connections and dress and gold ornaments around the neck and fingers make law enforcer to quiver.
In fact the gold illegally landing in the Kerala airports are repeatedly announced in the news, but we are never told about the later courses of the catch or who it was flown into illegally.
This will continue to happen till Aam admi forces its way into the legislative process.
Enjoy the week end
