As the fate of Indian students duped by a 'sham' American university in California hangs in the balance, recent reports have suggested that close to 100 Indian students have been radio tagged by the American police.
According to reports, the students have been 'tagged' as the US authorities don't want them to go into hiding. Reports added that the students were very upset over this move, which was enforced to reportedly help the police to keep a tab on the students.
"The passports of the students have been impounded and the navigation device has been fitted on their leg so the authorities can know where the student is at any point in time. So they will know if the student leaves the Bay area." Ashok Kolla, the Students' chairperson of the Telugu Association of North America told NDTV.

i'm not sure why there is so much surprise about this.
electronic monitoring of people in the u. s. is a pretty common thing, especially folks on house arrest, or on probation.

Why are we worried about a few Indians going to school but we do absolutely nothing about the 20 million or so Mexican illegals here, many who are abusing our system and bankrupting our country? Why don't they start tagging them. I'm sure there's someone in our gov that's heavily vested in ankle bracelets. I don't get it
