As an organizer from Nashville searched for housing and services for about 50 Egyptian men and their families who want to move to Shelbyville to be close to their new jobs at Tyson Foods, the county mayor said that the food giant should hire Bedford County residents first.
But personnel at the state employment office say they must accept job applications from everyone who shows up, no matter where they are from.

Concerns have once again risen in Shelbyville about immigrants and refugees coming to Bedford County to apply for jobs at the Tyson Foods poultry plant.

Law enforcement were called out early Monday to quell a disturbance at the state unemployment office downtown after about 150 people, including a large number of refugees and others brought from Nashville by various charitable organizations, began cutting in line for the coveted jobs.


Shelbyville Times-Gazette: Story: Tyson urged to hire Shelbyville residents before immigrants, refugees

It will be interesting to see how long it will take before Shelbyville explodes.

If this continues to occur throughout the US, it's going to get really ugly, really fast.

Obviously, these so-called "charitable" organizations do not subscribe to the tenet of "charity begins at home." Are there ANY organizations left in this country that advocate for U.S. citizens? Or, have they all succumbed to greed, and the deep pockets of the pro-illegal masters.

Start with the church and the way to anyone that wants to.
