Minnesota Governor Boasts About Refugee Resettlement, Consequences be Damned

Published

on

The Democrat governor of Minnesota, Tim Walz, is a notorious refugee resettlement booster.

Diana Mary Sitek of American Thinker wrote a piece detailing Walz’s grandstanding against President Donald Trump’s executive order allowing localities to shape their own refugee policies.

Walz boasted, “The inn is not full in Minnesota.”

To justify this program, Walz claims that refugees bring benefits to the state. However, he forgot to mention Somali welfare fraud and Somali unemployment, which was triple that of Minnesota’s unemployment rate.

Sitek also notes that local Somalis prefer Sharia law, thus making them harder to integrate into Western society.

She believes that Somali refugees should go back to their countries, but the political class and interest groups pushing mass migration are impeding that. Churches are funded for “settling” the refugees.

Such refugee inflows have grown bureaucracy profoundly, as governments have to cater to these migrants who have low skills and aptitudes conducive towards assimilation. None of this comes free, as taxpayers have to fork over considerable money to resettle these refugees and provide them with public services.

Sitek highlights how former Minnesota governor Mark Dayton told the fourth- and fifth-generation residents of St. Cloud to “find another state if you don’t want Muslim refugees.”

Mass migration is becoming the #1 issue heading into the 2020 elections, especially among GOP voters.

GOP candidates will have to position themselves more firmly and categorically reject refugee resettlement programs if they want to expand their electoral base and remain electorally relevant in the future.

Starbucks Barista FIRED After Refusing to Wear “Pride” T-Shirt for Religious Reasons, According to Lawsuit

She is a Christian and was apparently told by her manager that she didn’t have to wear it.

A former Starbucks barista is filing an unlawful discrimination lawsuit against the coffee giant, claiming they fired her for refusing to wear a “Pride” t-shirt that violated her Christian religious convictions.

Betsy Fresse started working as a barista in December 2015. After transferring to a Glen Ridge, New Jersey, store in early 2019, managers apparently “assured” her that her Christian faith wouldn’t be an issue.

Then in June 2019, she noticed a box of Pride shirts on a desk and asked if they’d make her wear one. Her store manager said she wouldn’t have to, but two months later she found herself out of a job after being terminated by a district manager.

A notice of separation claims that Fresse was fired for violating Starbucks’ “core values.” It specifically mentions an incident where she said her colleagues “need Jesus” when given the “Pride” shirt.

Starbucks maintains that “no part of our dress code requires partners to wear any approved items that they have not personally selected” and that Fresse’s claims are “without merit,” in a comment to the New York Post.

So Starbucks denies that she was fired for not wearing the shirt, yet their notice of separation appears to claim that they fired her for something she said about Jesus. Not a good look either way.

Fresse is seeking backpay, punitive damages, money to cover the cost of an attorney, and a permanent injunction that prevents Starbucks from “failing to accommodate […] sincerely held religious beliefs.”

Starbucks has long been a major player in the world of Woke Capital. Back in February Big League Politics reported on how the British branch of Starbucks was raising money for a pro-transgender lobbying group:

The U.K. branch of Starbucks is raising money to push for the chemical castration and surgical mutilation of children.

Nathanael Blake at The Federalist reported that the multinational titan is selling special mermaid-shaped cookies to help the pro-transgender lobbying group Mermaids. Curiously, the group’s founder took her underage son to Thailand to undergo a castration procedure.

Blake correctly observed “That Starbucks is supporting this group illustrates how thoroughly radicals have conquered both the LGBT movement and corporate culture.”

He also called attention to how “In a few years the fight has shifted from government recognition of same-sex relationships as legal marriages to mastectomies, sterilization, and castration for children.”

Here’s hoping that Betsy Fresse is successful in her lawsuit.
