Washington — Members of the Indian community in the US have been alarmed by a video posted on an anti-immigration website, which shows Indian families relaxing in an Ohio park, while a man taking the video accuses them of stealing American jobs, the media reported.

The video is titled “Welcome to Columbus Ohio Suburbs — Let’s Take a Walk to Indian Park” and was posed on SaveAmericanITJobs.com. The website is run by 66-year-old computer programmer Steve Pushor, reported BuzzFeed News.

The video has a running commentary showing men, women and children playing and relaxing in a public park.

The description of the video reads “Ohio’s suburban park is occupied by rich Indians”.

“These Indians have to be clocking in at $$$150 – 200K plus in salary to live in this area. The clothes they are wearing, the cars in the parking lot, the expensive baby strollers, ALL pointed to BIG $$,” the narrator said in the video, adding the Americans found it difficult to get IT Jobs.

“The number of people from foreign countries blows my mind out here. You see this whole area is all Indian, amazing. It’s an amazing number of jobs have been taken away from Americans. The Indian crowd has ravished the Midwest. It’s a takeover,” the man said.

Pushor told Buzzfeed News that the immigrant visa-holders are a threat to the IT jobs.

“What we’re trying to point out is people in Ohio, IT workers and other professional people, have lost their jobs to foreign guest workers. That’s what our point is,” he said.

The video has many Indian families worried. It comes after Hyderabad techie Srinivas Kuchibhotla was shot dead last month at a bar in Kansas city.

Many people have reacted to the video, some calling it an attempt at starting a racial discord.

“As a citizen of this great nation I find this video against the fundamental American values of diversity and equality of all races,” commented a user with a profile name Stem Mentor.

“As an American, I apologize for this man’s behaviour!,” commented another user.

During the entire video, the narrator has used words like “insane”, “hell” and “mad” looking at footage of Indians in the post.

  1. America’s greatness is that it’s a country of opportunity. Anybody who is willing to work hard, follow the laws and pursue a life of perseverance and honesty will be rewarded with success. That’s why so many came to this great land. That’s what made the immigrants from Europe came earliers days become rich and prosperous, now the Asians and Africans are coming, the process is same. Nobody is stealing anybody’s job. You need to be qualified and educated enough to handle the job, you will get it and prosper!
