Now Biden Regime Lashes Out at Musk
Now Biden Regime Lashes Out at MuskFollow @KnightsTempOrg
It's not just Donald Trump who's being persecuted for political reasons by the increasingly insecure Biden regime. On the same day that Donald Trump became the first ever President to have a police mugshot released, the Democrat elite accused Elon Musk's rocket and satellite company SpaceX of discriminating against asylum seekers and refugees in its hiring practices.
In a lawfare and financial attack clearly motivated by political intolerance, the Justice Department is suing the company for backpay for people who were denied jobs.
'The lawsuit alleges that, from at least September 2018 to May 2022, SpaceX routinely discouraged asylees and refugees from applying and refused to hire or consider them, because of their citizenship status, in violation of the Immigration and Nationality Act,' the Justice Department said in a statement.
The Justice Department also pointed to online posts from the company's billionaire owner Musk as examples of 'discriminatory public statements.'
On June 16, 2020, Musk, who then had approximately 36 million followers on X, a social media platform formerly known as Twitter, posted: 'U.S. law requires at least a green card to be hired at SpaceX, as rockets are advanced weapons technology.'
SpaceX did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the lawsuit.
'Our investigation found that SpaceX failed to fairly consider or hire asylees and refugees because of their citizenship status and imposed what amounted to a ban on their hire regardless of their qualification, in violation of federal law,' said U.S. Assistant Attorney General Kristen Clarke of the Justice Department's civil rights division.
Clarke also said SpaceX recruiters and high-level officials 'actively discouraged' asylum seekers and refugees from seeking work opportunities at the company.
The United States seeks fair consideration and back pay for asylum seekers and refugees who were deterred or denied employment at SpaceX due to the alleged discrimination, the Justice Department said.
The lawsuit also seeks civil penalties in an amount to be determined by court and policy changes to ensure SpaceX complies with the federal non-discrimination mandate going forward.
Republicans of all hues should by now understand that the Democrats are no longer half of a balanced political system, but are now shamelessly imposing a One Party State, with the intention of demonising and destroying any and all genuine opposition to their leftist tyranny. The complete destruction of the 1st and 2nd Amendments are just part of their anti-American agenda.
