Musk Blasts Weasponized DOJ after It Sues SpaceX for Not Hiring Refugees

Tesla CEO Elon Musk blasted Biden’s ‘weaponized’ DOJ after it slapped SpaceX with a lawsuit for not hiring asylum seekers and refugees.

According to the lawsuit, the DOJ found that “SpaceX failed to fairly consider or hire asylees and refugees because of their citizenship status and imposed what amounted to a ban on their hire regardless of their qualification, in violation of federal law,” Assistant AG of the DOJ’s Civil Rights Division, Kristen Clarke said.

“SpaceX recruiters and high-level officials took actions that actively discouraged asylees and refugees from seeking work opportunities at the company,” according to the complaint.

According to data SpaceX provided, the DOJ said the company “hired only one individual who was an asylee and identified as such in his application” over a nearly four-year period and across more than 10,000 hires.

The lone hire came months after the DOJ notified SpaceX of its investigation.

Musk responded Thursday night, tweeting:

“SpaceX was told repeatedly that hiring anyone who was not a permanent resident of the United States would violate international arms trafficking law, which would be a criminal offense,” adding, “This is yet another case of weaponization of the DOJ for political purposes.”

Biden’s lawsuit seeks to win “fair consideration and back pay for asylees and refugees who were deterred or denied employment at SpaceX due to the alleged discrimination,” along with policy changes and civil penalties from the company.

The news comes just days after Musk vowed to sue organizations funded by left-wing billionaire George Soros that have been pushing for a major crackdown on free speech.

As the Daily Fetched reported:

In a post on X, dated Aug. 23, Musk agreed with investigative journalist Michael Shellenberger, who said George Soros-funded NGOs have been falsely claiming “hate incidents” are increasing to push for restrictions of free expression.

“Politicians & George Soros-funded NGOs say ‘hate incidents’ are rising, but they’re not,” Mr. Shellenberger wrote in his post.

“The data show the opposite: higher-than-ever and rising levels of tolerance of minorities. The reason they’re spreading hate misinformation is to justify a draconian crackdown on free speech.”
