In this episode of India's World focuses on how to deal with the issues of emigration and the government has been mulling bringing changes to the Emigration Act,1983. Nine Indian fishermen undertook the perilous sea journey from Yemen to flee from their sponsor and arrived in Kerala on Friday. The Coast Guard rescued the fishermen who fled Yemen in a fishing vessel after being harassed by their sponsor in the Middle East nation. The sponsor had not paid them and was reluctant in providing them with basic amenities like food and shelter. Last month, around 150 Indians were deported from the US for either flouting visa rules or illegally entering the United States. In a similar incident in October, nearly 300 Indians were deported from Mexico for trying to enter the US illegally. Close to around 10000 Indians are deported from around the world every year. To try and address this problem.
