In Garland, two dozen teachers are still in limbo. Recruited from other countries, they’re on the verge of losing their jobs and being deported when their H1-B visas expire. They're not alone. School systems and teachers across the country – and just down the highway in Dallas – are dealing with similar visa problems.

Infosys, an international tech company with offices in Plano, is paying a record $34 million to settle claims of visa fraud and abuse.

Federal agents in North Texas led the investigation.

In 2011, a whistleblower brought possible visa fraud complaints to the attention of investigators regarding Infosys' Plano location, which is responsible for handling the company's immigration practices and procedures.
