The Companies Behind The “Muslim Ban”

Leave a comment

August 1, 2018 by Chris Kite

As is always the case in American politics, money drives the policies. Here is an excellent piece on those companies that are involved in or profiting off the abhorrent Muslim ban enacted by the Trump Administration. These companies can be broken down into four categories:

  • Companies whose core business models depend on hate- and fear-mongering, such as Fox News’ parent, News Corp

  • Companies whose core business models depend on the dehumanization of Muslims and Arabs and perpetual warfare in Muslim-majority companies, such as Halliburton or ExxonMobil

  • Companies who finance elected officials that carry out anti-Muslim policy agendas, such as Blackstone and AT&T

  • Companies who profit from and enable immigration detention and incarceration, such as GEO Group, a private prison company that operates immigrant detention centers, Wells Fargo, which finances these detention centers, and Microsoft, which has large contracts with ICE

Their likes include:

  • News Corp
  • Halliburton
  • ExxonMobil
  • Blackstone
  • AT&T
  • GEO Group
  • American Bankers Association (ABA)
  • Wells Fargo
  • Bank of America
  • JPMorgan Chase
  • BNP Paribas (which owns Bank of the West and is the largest investor in First Hawaiian Bank)
  • SunTrust
  • U.S. Bancorp

We can do something about this. We can speak up and be heard. We can contact these corporations and object to their involvement. We can speak with our business.
