Thank you for selecting as your virtual location to connect with the Asian Indian community in North America. The Indian American Leadership Council (IALC) was formed in the early 90's to promote civic awareness and protect the civil rights of Indian American residents. The IALC seeks to provide a unified voice for Indian Americans in the main stream decision making process along with fostering more dynamic relationships between the world’s largest and oldest democracies--India and the United States. 

Since 1996, the IALC has been actively developing narratives for better US-India partnership through people-to-people diplomacy at the grassroots. We believe Indian American voters and taxpayers must play a major role in fostering Indo-US relations and become a powerful


Indians: Largest Asian Group in Maryland

The 2010 Census Bureau report reveals that Asian Indians are now the largest Asian group in Maryland totaling 79,051 residents. In population count, they have surpassed other Asian groups--Chinese (64,487), Koreans (48,592) and Filipinos (43,923). Most Asian Indians live in Montgomery, Howard, Baltimore and Frederick counties. Montgomery County is the most populated county in Maryland, with 971,777 residents, followed by Prince George's county (863,420), and Baltimore County (805,029). Maryland has a population of 5,773,552. Between 2000 and 2010, Maryland's population gained 477,066 persons, an increase of 9%. Hispanics make up 8% of state population. The White population is 54.7% down from 62% while Blacks are 29% of the State's population.

Indian Americans Win:A Senate and Five Congressional Seats

Indian Americans made history in American politics, with one becoming the first to be elected to the senate and four others winning seats in the House of Representative. Kamala Harris became Senator from California, Pramila Jayapal from Washington, Raja Krishnamoorthi from Ilinois and Ro Khanna fro California will join Ami Bera, who was re-elected from California, in the House of Representatives. Tulsi Gabbard, who is a Hindu, not of Indian descdent, was re-elected to the House from Hawaii. Earlier in 2010, Nikki Haley of South Carolina became the second Indian American elected as a state governor, three years after Bobby Jindal of Louisiana became the first. 


Asian Indians: Now 1% of US Population

People of Indian origin are projected to be one percent of America's population of 308.7 million. Indians (2,843,391) are now the largest Asian subgroup in 25 states in America, making them the main drivers in population growth of Asian Americans, according to an analysis of US Census 2010. Indian Americans have attained political clout: during heavily contested Democratic and Republican primaries, they often emerge as swing voters. California had the most Indian American residents at 528,176, and New York was second at 313,620. There are 292,256 Asian Indians in New Jersey, 3.3 percent of the state's total population. After the top three states with the largest numbers of Indian Americans are Texas, 245,981; Illinois, 188,328; Florida, 128,735; Virginia, 103,916; Pennsylvania, 103,026; Georgia, 96,116; Maryland, 79,051; Massachusetts, 77,177; Michigan, 77,132; Ohio, 64,187; Washington, 61,124; and North Carolina, 57,400.

Presidential Politics: Indian Americans are mostly Democrats but a large number of them voted for Republican Donald Trump in this election. A visible portion of Indian Americans broke away to vote for Mr. Trump. Almost all of them had voted for Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012. Trump voters think that it is their patriotic duty towards India. “India and America, the largest and the oldest democracies face the same threat of terrorism from Islamic fundamentalism."
