CISCO laying off to hire Illegals?

In 2013, Cisco, along with other big-business interests, wrote to Congress that "failure to act is not an option" on amnesty legislation even though the Congressional Budget Office determined that the bill in question would lower the wages of American workers. In addition, numerous scholars and studies have debunked the notion that there is a shortage of American high-tech workers, but high-tech companies like Microsoft, Cisco, and Facebook want more guest-worker visas to import more foreign workers.

NOW - A year after insisting that Congress must pass comprehensive amnesty legislation, Cisco announced Wednesday that it would lay off another 6,000 workers, about 8% of its workforce.
According to BizJournals, Cisco has previously announced that "it would lay off 4,000 workers in 2013; 1,300 in 2012; 6,500 in 2011; and 2,000 in 2009." The new layoffs will occur in 2015.
