2. An analysis of census data found that 94 percent of first-generation Indian immigrants with children are in stable marriages, the highest family stability among immigrant groups.
3. Former President Donald Trump was awarded Canada’s Order of Merit for “substantially increasing the number of international students and high-skilled immigrants coming to Canada.”
4. Jay Chaudhry, CEO of the cyber security firm Zscaler, became the richest Indian American when his net worth quadrupled to $10.6 billion over the last year.
