Posted on 11/30/2007 2:15:51 PM PST by chicagolady
Emporia, Kansas has a Somali Muslim problem that we have written about. The communitys Somali Muslim population, presently at somewhere between 750 to 1,000 could increase by upwards of 50 percent under a new federally funded intake program to expand the local Tyson Foods meat packing plant in Emporia, a community of less than 30,000. Tyson-the worlds largest processor of beef, pork and poultry headquartered in Arkansas is listed on the NYSE has a current market capitalization of over $4.5 billion.
Tyson got in trouble with both a Federal law suit and employee class action now being heard in an Eastern Tennessee Federal District court when it hired illegal Hispanic immigrants and depressed the wages of its own American work force.
In October 2006, a federal judge granted class-action status to a lawsuit brought by Tyson employees who allege that Tysons practice of hiring illegal immigrants depresses wages 10-30%. The suit further contends that the company violated federal racketeering laws by conspiring with National Council of La Raza and League of United Latin American Countries not to question the employment applications of anyone with a Hispanic surname.
So, Tyson opted to do something legal. It brought in approximately 400 legal Somali Muslim humanitarian refugees to top up its 2000 employee work force in Emporia. It went further and allotted prayer room space and even outfitted bathrooms with wudus, foot washing baths, so that these tough foot soldiers of Islam could prayer to mecca, five times a day. It also brought in sensitivity training specialists into the community from groups like federally funded Spring Institute of Denver, Colorado engaged in inter-cultural and immigrant absorption consulting on behalf of the Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitative Services (KDSRS)

These Muslims from Africa Could be the same kind of Muslims that are calling for the execution of the Briton Teacher in the news today..
Lets see a Mosque in every American city.
Tyson Foods = Arkansas = Klintoon...............
Tyson and clinton have a crooked relationship that goes back for decades. The seem to have gotten to know each other in the drug smuggling business.
I forget the name of the beef packing company that Tyson took over, but this may be it. When they refused a Tyson takeover offer, clinton sent a swarm of federal inspectors into their plants and knocked their stock price down, I think by about a billion dollars. Then Tyson took them over, on the cheap.
I will NEVER buy a Tyson chicken.
Hey, Akhmed, when you’se gets done with the 5:00 pm prayer, I need you over on the pork sausage line, on the double!
You don’t want to know what we deal with in NYC re: Somalis.
Wonder if the Christians got a prayer room and time off to use it....
The tired old argument of immigrants keep cost of food down is exposed as a fraud by actions like this when the cost of the foot baths, prayer room, and time off to pray are considered.
Don’t forget the Huckster connection ...
LOLOL!!!! It’s fun at Christmas when the company gives out “holiday hams”. God bless us every one.
Somali’s shouldn’t even be allowed in this country. Most of them are 8th century savages and they will become a danger to the public. They have absolutely no intention whatsoever of assimilating into our culture. None.
Sounds like work for the prison industries and time to stop these imports.
Where are the humanitarian refugess from hard pressed areas of America? Appalachia, some Indian Reservations, etc
And we thought the Mexicans were bad so we threw them all out, but we got a nice big batch of Somoli Muslims instead. Brilliant, I tell you, simply brilliant..(/sarc)
They’ve taken over the airport in Mpls and they all look alike.
Tyson Foods = Arkansas = Klintoon + Yuckabee
The town or county should impose a fat payroll tax on employers meeting Tyson’s description, say $15.00 an hour.
