First it was the New York Times this morning and now it appears that USA Today is in on the action. In this case, I really am glad the mainstream media reporters are a bunch of sheep.
“Prayer leads to work disputes” in USA Today doesn’t add a whole lot of new information from what we have been telling you for a month or so now, but check out the photo of one of the Somalis planning to file a complaint.
Abdi Mohamed, 28, came to the USA as a refugee from Somalia a year ago. For most of his eight months at the Grand Island plant, his boss let him slip away for seven minutes at sunset to pray in the locker room, allowing him to balance his job cutting beef with a tenet of Islam.
“Anytime I’m not (praying), I’m damaging my relationship with God,” he says through a translator.
Mohamed, who lost his job Sept. 19, says he plans to file a discrimination complaint. “We are refugees to this country,” he says, “and now we are made to be refugees within America.”
That is one mean looking dude on the right. The complaint filer must be the one on the left. If anyone has a little investigation time, I bet the one on the right (the mean dude) is one of the community organizers. Could it be mouthpiece Graen Isse?
By the way, hurry on over to USA Today where a lot of hot comments are flying around on this story. Once before when USA Today did something controversial about refugees the comments were very quickly yanked.
For new readers there are a couple of posts you need to check out. The first is our research on how many Somalis have been admitted to the US by the State Department here. And, the other is that as a result of DNA testing that showed that 80% of East Africans (including Somalis) trying to enter the US through the family reunification part of refugee resettlement were committing fraud, the program is presently suspended.
