I've asked myself that many times...

"...Is not this evidence, given the repeated nature of the company's infractions, sufficient for either the Department of Labor to put Infosys on the debarred list or for the Department of Homeland Security [DHS] to take similar action?"

The answer is unambiguously yes. And the form that action should take is criminal prosecution, both of the corporation as a legal entity, as well as all those Infosys officials individually who are discovered to have participated in this scheme. I can think of at least two federal felony violations that are relevant:

Aiding and Abetting, and Conspiracy to Commit, Visa Fraud. 18 U.S.C. Section 1546 provides in pertinent part that:

Whoever knowingly makes under oath, or ... knowingly subscribes as true, any false statement with respect to a material fact in any application, affidavit, or other document required by the immigration laws. ... Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned ... 10 years (in the case of the first or second such offense, if the offense was not committed to facilitate such an act of international terrorism or a drug trafficking crime).

While this would seem to apply only to the worker-applicant who was advised to lie, two other provisions of the federal criminal code make clear that the company and its officials are also culpable. 18 U.S.C. Section 2 and 18 U.S.C. Section 371, punish anyone who "aids, abets, counsels, commands, induces or procures" commission of a crime, as well as "two or more persons [who] conspire either to commit any offense against the United States, or to defraud the United States."

Conspiracy to Bring in and Harbor Aliens. This provision of law, found at 8 U.S.C. Section 1324 provides, at subsections (a)(1)(A)(iv) and (v), that:

(A) Any person who ... (iv) encourages or induces an alien to come to, enter, or reside in the United States, knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that such coming to, entry, or residence is or will be in violation of law; or (v) ... (I) engages in any conspiracy to commit any of the preceding acts, or (II) aids or abets the commission of any of the preceding acts,shall be punished as provided in subparagraph (B).

(B) A person who violates subparagraph (A) shall, for each alien in respect to whom such a violation occurs...in which the offense was done for the purpose of commercial advantage or private financial gain, be fined under title 18, imprisoned not more than 10 years, or both. (Emphasis added.)

These federal criminal statutes certainly encompass the situation as it seems to have unfolded in the New York attorney general's lawsuit. What's more, because of that lawsuit, a great deal of the spadework usually required of an investigator has already been done. Such matters fall squarely into the purview of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), a division within Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), which itself is a component of DHS.

India Incs are all basically organized crime syndicates. Which is what my new website aims to expose. It is probably only the fact that India has nuclear weapons aimed at the US which allows any of this to continue at all. And the fact that OUR corporations want access to their markets to sell to.

They are also in violation of at least:




18 U.S. Code § 1546 seems to be the real humdinger, tho. India Inc's hiring US PR firms to pump the PR lies into the media that Americans can't be found alone is a fraudulent conspiracy and misuse of visas. WE NEED ENFORCEMEMT NOW. WE NEED INDIA INCS RAIDED! DHS RAID THE INDIA INCS!

We will create a new Hindi speaking upper class in America.
We will breed the Hispanics with the Blacks to create a Spanish speaking mulatto working class.

Your white children will go to school and will have mandatory Hindi or Spanish language classes.

How does that future sound, white man?

India test cheating stirs outrage — then people start dying


Anand Rai is the only doctor working for the health department here in the central state of Madhya Pradesh who gets a bodyguard. But he's also the only one who's gotten death threats for blowing the whistle on a school-cheating scandal with a growing body count.

"We will create a new Hindi speaking upper class in America."

HAHAHA! And just how will you do that? Without white American industry you are all toilet cleaners. If you enslave those creating your jobs where will you get your middle class paychecks from maderchods? The Indian way of thinking is so delusional you cannot even see that it can never work. Parasites all die eventually because they always kill their host. If you do that in America how will you live? You will die of starvation too. Dummies.

Indians in the US will collapse under their own nickle-sniffing weight. Without white American industry, Indians cannot even survive in the US. And outside the two coasts most Americans will not even hire Indians. So enjoy it while you can looters!

Some employee needs to wear a hidden camera and record some footage of the blatant discrimination practiced in these companies. Time to give them a taste of their own medicine.

"Indians in the US will collapse under their own nickle-sniffing weight.".

Nickel-sniffing is right. What is it with these people, Indians? We know about their highly skilled white collar crime techniques. Their claim of being highly skilled is true when it comes to running organized crime rackets, but certainly does not apply to their hapless, half-ass attempts to do technical work.

But there's also their petty crime. They take anything they can get for free, especially if it is a grey area of the law, that is, not exactly a misdemeanor. Example:

This week I was at Costco. A middle-aged Indian couple with a middle school aged child
were in the produce section, with the woman wearing her colorful robe. They had a
carton of blueberries in the bottom of their shopping cart. They opened a second carton, and while looking around nervously to see if anyone would accost them, they picked blueberries from the second carton and ate them. Then they put the second carton back on the table and walked away. So another customer will buy an underweight carton just so Indians could eat a few blueberries for free.

And you notice it wasn't bananas. No, they knew that blueberries are EXPENSIVE, and here's a chance to eat some for FREE.

It was stunning. It was like witnessing a dog at a backyard BBQ steal a hamburger from a tray when the family isn't looking. The dog knows it is wrong, has been scolded before for just getting near the food, but thinks it can get away with it.

This is the kind of petty, animal manners and ethics Indians bring here. And these two might be sitting in the cube next to an American IT professional, pretending that they fit in culturally. I would bet that at least the male is masquerading as a IT professional and maybe the female as well. Unbelievable.

I suppose their eating the food without paying could be categorized as petty larceny. But I doubt if the store would prosecute since the Indians might deny they did it, and take their story to the sympathetic liberal media for broadcast on the 6 o'clock news:

'Vijay and Pajaba say they are being accused of a crime because they are Indian. Your Channel 6 I-team investigative report up next'.
