President Trump’s executive order issuing a temporary immigration ban on refugees from seven predominately Muslim countries known to support terrorism continues to make headlines throughout the country. Colleges and universities are reaching out to their students, staff and faculty to offer their support, protestors have limited access to airports and Democratic senators have literally cried foul.
Some businesses have also reportedly entered the chaos calling for some overseas employees to come back to the US as soon as they can. Others, such as Starbucks, have vowed to seek out and hire refugees.
Town Hall reported that Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz pledged to hire 10,000 refugees following Trump’s immigration order. The Black Rifle Coffee Company is responding with a pledge of their own. The company posted on Instagram that they are vowing to hire 10,000 US veterans.
“We want to shift the conversation away from foreign policy to domestic issues that hit closer to home,” the statement read. “We need to keep in mind that the four things we care about at BRCC are Family, Business, Veterans, and country. And when we say ‘country’, the taxpayers. Everyone else can take a hike.”
“I started Black Rifle Coffee Company to provide a high-quality, roast-to-order coffee to the pro 2A and veteran communities,” said company founder Evan Hafer. “Between deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, I was working to refine both my coffee roasting skills and my firearms skills.”
“I take pride in the coffee we roast, the veterans we employ and the causes we support,” Hafer added.
