This isn't a news anymore. Indians have been working in the States for quite a time now, this wouldn't be an exaggeration that the Information & Technology in US is resting on the shoulders of Asians (specially Indian and Chinese). All the known firms in US have outsourced a good chunk of their work to Indian firms however the same has not been taken well by the authorities; reason being they look at Asians as the people who are a threat to their employment opportunities.
Truth is yet to prevail about the allegation of violating the VISA norms by two major Indian firms TCS and Infosys, and we hope that they come clean on this.

"The Department of Labor has opened an investigation into two India-based outsourcing companies for possible violations of rules for visas for foreign technology workers under contracts they held with an electric utility, Southern California Edison. The power company recently laid off more than 500 technology workers. Many said they were made to train replacements who were immigrants on temporary visas, known as H-1B, brought in by the Indian firms, Tata Consultancy Services and Infosys. Senators Richard Durbin of Illinois, a Democrat, and Jeff Sessions of Alabama, a Republican, announced the investigation after they were notified by the department." Quote - NYTIMES
