Apparently, there are companies that coach other companies on how to conduct interviews that make the applicants look incapable of doing the jobs. They can then claim no one in the US is available and able to do these jobs, and that the US Congress should increase the number of visas that can be granted.

It pains me to hear that Cisco is wrapped up in this. I've always wanted to work at Cisco, and have generally respected their work and contribution to the Internet community over the years. So if they're just trying to make the people they're interviewing look unqualified, I'll feel the same way about them as I do about all the other companies that are engaged in these shenanigans.
