Tyson Foods bringing “ethnic empowerment network” to a town near you

This story from Garden City, Kansas makes me wonder—-who is deciding the future for your meatpacking town, the citizens, or Tyson Foods?

Tyson Foods in Garden City, Kansas

I have a pretty large archive on Garden City which is one more heartland city that has been changed by the arrival of US State Department-planted third world refugee workers over the last decade or so.

The story leads me to believe that everything is not peace and love when diversity comes to town….

….and that Tyson Foods has a huge stake in keeping the immigrant worker supply train on the tracks!

From the Garden City Telegram:

Representatives from 10 of Garden City’s immigrant communities and six of its organizations and public entities met at St. Catherine Hospital Saturday for the first meeting of the Southwest Kansas Ethnic Empowerment Network.

The network is a reinvigoration of Tyson Fresh Foods Chaplain Jonathon Galia’s Coalition of Ethnic Minority Leaders of Southwest Kansas, which intended to bring together the leaders of Garden City’s immigrant and minority groups and connect them to resources that would help them succeed in the region. [Connect them to resources is code for getting them signed up for their welfare and other social service goodies.—ed]

Galia said the name of the original group, which he founded almost 10 years ago, unintentionally left out city and organization representatives. He said he hopes the new network brings together people from all areas of Garden City in a way that introduces, connects and aids minority groups in adapting to the community.

“There is a constant need for all of us as we continue to aspire for a homogenous community where we constantly experience a blend of culture, a blend of languages.

We see a need for an improved communication among the different peoples,” Galia said.

On Saturday, more than 20 people from a dozen different backgrounds sat in a square in one of St. Catherine’s classrooms, with laminated placards announcing the communities they represented. There were leaders of immigrants from Myanmar, El Salvador, the Ethiopian ethnic group Oromo, the Philippines, Somalia, Kenya, Vietnam, Sudan, Haiti and Eritrea. [By the way, Oromos and Somalis don’t always get along—ed]


Among them sat the network’s 2018 advisory board: Galia, Garden City Police Chief Michael Utz, City of Garden City Human Resources Director Allie Medina, St. Catherine Hospital Vice President Kayte Fulton, Catholic Agency for Migration and Refugee Services Director LeVita Rohlman, Tyson Human Resources Manager Barb Larsen and LiveWell Finney County Health Coalition Special Projects Consultant Troy Unruh, who came on behalf of Callie Dyer, the coalition’s executive director.


Minority group representatives introduced themselves and spoke briefly about the size and experience of their respective communities.

Do you have a meatpacking plant near you? If so, it is, and will be, the key factor in determining the future of your town.

Someone should write a book about how BIG MEAT is changing America by changing the people.

  1. Explain to me again…….why the USA has to feed the world……Do other countries not have soil, rain, sunshine & fertilizer….. Is Big Ag just trying to create dependency ? ……. Already we are destroying our land with GMOs and artificial fertilizers….

  2. Thanks for exposing this. I already avoid Tyson because of some of their practices. This is an even more important reason to boycott them.

  3. Just some questions: Was the “Leader” of the “White Community” there? Was he allowed to speak and represent HIS People in this? If not…WHY not?


  4. Aside from the obvious cultural poisoning, what really bothers me is the fact that these people have access to food that we consume. It is only a matter of time until they figure out that they can poison a lot of people by simply contaminating the food that they process.


    1. I’ve thought about that many times…. If people stopped eating Tysons or JBS Swift and so forth maybe they would get the message. Oh, and don’t eat Chobani yogurt either!

  5. THIS HAS TO STOP ! These large corporations are creating a distinct SLAVE CLASS of indentured servants, who are forced to work under harsh and unhealthy conditions, here on US soil. Instead of addressing the slavery issues of 150 years ago, we need to be addressing the slavery issues of TODAY !


      1. What all this boils down to, is that we still will have an infiltration in this country, and what it amounts to is nothing is going to be done about anything. We still will have an increase of Muslims, and other refugees that are enemies to this country. WHY IN THE HELL ARE THESE CHILDREN BEING TOLD TO SIGN A DECLARATION OF MUSLIM FAITH IN OUR COUNTRY IN THE FIRST PLACE. IT WOULD SEEM TO ME, THAT YOU worship trump too.
