Summary Box: US investigates India's Infosys

THE NEWS: The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is investigating Infosys for visa "errors," adding to the Indian outsourcing company's legal woes over U.S. visa irregularities.

OTHER PROBLEMS: Infosys is fighting separate allegations in U.S. courts that it misused short-term visitor visas to send low-cost workers to the U.S.

THE CONTEXT: Visas are a growing source of friction between the U.S. and India, which counts on fast-growing services exports to prop up growth. Infosys and other Indian software services exporters send tens of thousands of workers to the U.S. each year to work with clients on site.
