You don't have to drive long on U.S. highways until you see one: a motel sign loudly boasting the premises are "American-owned." And you don't have to stay in many motels to know that in the past 25 years, budget accommodations have become a major growth sector for immigrants from South Asia. A large proportion of America's budget hotels are now run by people born in and around In...
