Re: Brenda Walker's Blog: Legal Somalians ("Refugees") Replace Illegal Mexicans At Swift Plant

Walker failed to mention why Somalis are perfect employees at the Greeley, CO Swift & Company slaughterhouse.

On Eid al-Adha, the highest holy day for Muslims, males typically cut the throats of animals—most often goats or sheep—to commemorate Allah's request to Abraham that he kill his son Isaac.

Only men perform this gruesome practice. But women in Muslim families would be familiar enough with the concept of animal butchering to be able to work in a bloody environment.

Killing innocent animals isn't my thing.

But, hey, diversity rocks!
