Washington sources have stated that Sealing a historic breakthrough for Indian-Americans, five were sworn in on Tuesday as members of the US Congress one of them is Kamala Harris, becoming the first to become a Senator.


It was stated that Ami Bera, who was the only Indian-American in the 435 member House of Representatives and re-elected in the November elections, was joined by the four others, increasing the Indian-American contingent to five members in the Congress. All five are Democrats and three of them Harris, Bera and Representative Ro Khanna are from California. The other two Representatives are Raja Krishnamoorthi from Illinois and Pramila Jayapal from Washington State.

Harris, whose mother was from Chennai and father from Jamaica, has a dual identity as both an Indian-American and an African-American. Vice President Joseph Biden administered her oath of office which she swore on a Bible copy held by her husband Doug Emhoff.
