The clearly left-leaning Starbucks has once again tried to impress the American people by announcing that they’ll be hiring refugees to operate their stores. Unfortunately for them, it just backfired big time as patrons learned the unexpected and involuntary “extra” they may be getting with their coffee – and it’s downright nasty if not potentially deadly.
As we all know, the CEO of Starbucks announced that they would be hiring 10,000 refugees over the course of the next 5 years. Of course, seeing how over 20,000 refugees have been resettled by the federal government in El Cajon of San Deigo County, California, during the past nine and a half years, what better place to start than there?
In fact, it seems that’s exactly what Starbucks is thinking as they most recently held a hiring event exclusively for refugees. Even though this is clear and illegal discrimination, that isn’t stopping the liberal corporation from trying to follow through on their previously announced intentions.
However, it seems that they should have thought twice before making such an offer as it just blew up in their face. As it turns out, customers have most recently learned about something “extra” they could be getting with their coffee, and people aren’t too happy about it.
According to a medical research study led by Dr. Timothy Rodwell, tuberculosis rates are the highest in the nation near San Diego, thanks to the local refugee population — the same ones Starbucks is looking to hire. Since customers may be exposed to the potentially deadly disease, Geller Report states that people may want to opt for making a cup of coffee at home, you know, in the interest of saving your life.
A 2013 study from a research team led by Dr. Timothy Rodwell, “an associate professor and physician in the Division of Global Health at UCSD [University of California at San Diego]” that “analyzed data from LTBI [latent tuberculosis infection] screening results of 4,280 refugees resettled in San Diego County between January 2010 and October 2012,” noted that “San Diego County, in California, is a leading refugee resettlement site, and it also has one of the highest rates of active TB in the country, with an incidence rate of 8.4 cases per 100 000 people in 2011.” (The incidence rate in the entire population in the United States in 2016 was 2.9 per 100,000).

In all, the study released by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) found that of the 4,280 refugees resettled in San Diego County, during the 34 months beginning in January 2010, 916 refugees in the study had a positive QFT-GIT (QuantiFERON-TB Gold In-Tube) result. For those keeping up, that’s a whopping 21.4% (more than 1 in 5) of the population.
Liberals have a serious problem with seeing the big picture. As long as it appeals to their feelings, that’s good enough for them, consequences and facts be damned. Of course, continuing to implement such policies while ignoring the countless times that their “political correctness” has blown up in their faces is nothing short of insanity – especially when they are continuously forewarned about their disastrous plans by those on the opposite side of the aisle.
At this point, the left is putting American lives in danger, and the worst part is, they don’t care. Not only do we have no way of properly vetting those being allowed into our country virtually unchecked, now we’re exposing the public to people with diseases that could actually kill them. It’s time to wake up. The life, safety, and well-being of our citizens should always come first. It’s time the left re-evaluates their priorities.
