to the thousands of migrants and refugees that federal refugee contractor World Relief and the Nashville Chamber of Commerce say are entitled to realize their American Dream.
The problem they say (here and here), is that the refugees and economic migrants (who Obama has allowed to pass for refugees), who have degrees that could qualify for white collar jobs, aren’t “connected” and therefore, can’t find the jobs that are being passed around in the good ole’ boys networks.
Well guess what? The average college educated Tennessean can’t get those jobs either.
Insiders like Dr. Subhi Ali and Sen. Lamar Alexander secured jobs for their children Samar Ali and Will Alexander with Tennessee’s Department of Economic and Community Development (ECD). These insiders know that ECD is really Haslam’s publicly funded, political payback employment firm!
Samar Ali’s father called up the ECD Commissioner and asked that “he look at Samar’s resume” and lo and behold, she became an Assistant Commissioner at ECD! At the same time ECD hired Lamar Alexander’s campaign director Alice Rolli. To avoid any appearance of nepotism though, Leslee Alexander had to wait until her brother Will left ECD before she could get the job as ECD’s International Director.
If the Haslam elitists can have special rules, so can the special clients that federal refugee contractor World Relief calls “citizens-in-waiting.” No driving taxis or working at the Tysons chicken plant for the highbrow refugees. First we were told that importing the uneducated Somalis to do the jobs that Americans won’t do fulfilled the humanitarian goal of providing corporate globalists with cheap labor.
Now the Nashville Chamber of Commerce says that Tennessee businesses are better off, even morally enviable, if they discriminate against white Americans, particularly Tennessee homegrown workers, if it helps the newly arrived refugee who has a degree.
Companies like Chipotle have committed to preferential hiring of refugees. They are in a partnership with one of the largest federal refugee resettlement contractors, the International Rescue Committee (IRC). Chipotle is a designated “preferred employment partner” just like Nashville is a “preferred resettlement site.”
So when politicians like state Rep. Tim Wirgau says “we got more people who don’t look for jobs because we keep handing them money,” or the political challengers who parrot “more jobs for Tennessee” are they okay with filling those jobs with refugees?
Make no mistake about it, Obama’s refugee contractors and the Nashville Chamber of Commerce want your children’s jobs, the ones your children need so they can start paying off their college loans. Were your children aware that the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) was hiring?
Recently arrived Kurdish refugee Shenwar Hussein took only five months to land his job with TDOT.
And while Haslam is pumping out “Tennessee Promise” and “Tennessee Reconnect” graduates, he and his cronies are enthusiastically importing competition for the jobs that he says is the way the citizens of Tennessee will prosper and prop up the state economically.
Why doesn’t TIRRC cough up some jobs?
TIRRC (TN Immigrant & Refugee Rights Coalition) wants more refugees to come to Tennessee and join the illegal immigrants for whom they want amnesty or what they euphemistically call “family reunification.”
TIRRC is in a great position to hand over staff jobs to newly arrived refugees and immigrants with higher education degrees. They have lots of Soros money and a new infusion of cash from the JM Kaplan Fund (the family of Welch’s grape juice).
With over one million dollars in annual revenue several years in a row, TIRRC has enough money to pay two directors and fourteen full-time staff. They have lobbyists and a Policy Coordinator. Imagine if they add a refugee with an elitist Ivy League degree – now that would make policymakers and apologists swoon.
Metro “Inclucivics” – white men out, racial quotas in!
The Metro Human Relations Commission is using “Inclucivics” to socially engineer the composition of the city’s workforce from the police department to the schools and every department and agency in between. It’s like affirmative action on steroids.
Nashville mayor Megan Barry says “it doesn’t matter how you got here” so a little detail like being in the country illegally shouldn’t stand in her way of ensuring that all Hispanics are proportionally represented in Metro jobs. Once Mayor Barry implements the municipal ID program for illegal immigrants that she endorsed during her campaign, it will be a short step to changing Metro’s hiring practices. After all, to be fully effective, “Inclucivics” shouldn’t discriminate against illegal immigrant lawbreakers.
The mayor is also an enthusiastic supporter of refugee resettlement and representation from Islamist communities. After all, it helps facilitate Metro’s mandate that race and ethnicity are the most important characteristics for any job applicant.
It’s ironic that the phony progressives in Metro, who could have elected Howard Gentry as the first black mayor, opted instead for electing a white woman.
The professional left and the corporate globalist right are ideologically aligned against the economic interests of Tennessee’s citizens. It’s certainly one way to usher in “the New South.”
