Comment: Infosys Faces Largest Immigration Fine
The Wall Street Journal reports that DHS and State Department are getting ready to hit Infosys, India's second largest software exporter, with the largest ever fine for immigration law violations. "The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday that the fine would be approximately $35 million. The Journal reported that a probe conducted by the Department of Homeland Security and the State Department found that Infosys was able to bring a number of its employees to the U.S. for long-term stays by using B-1 visas as opposed to the more expensive H-1B visas." The announcement from U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Texas on this matter is expected on October 30th.
