Hagedorn Sends Letter to Small Business Administration on Discrimination in Restaurant Aid

WASHINGTON, D.C. – In case you missed it, yesterday, Congressman Jim Hagedorn (MN-01) sent a letter to the U.S. Small Business Administrator (SBA) Isabella Casillas Guzman seeking answers as to how the SBA intends to change its programs and policies as a result of President Biden’s Executive Order 13985, “Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities Through the Federal Government.” This Executive Order has resulted in thousands of small businesses being excluded from relief programs due to the Biden Administration’s prioritization of certain individuals.

“On his first day on the job, President Biden issued an Executive Order that essentially mandates legal preference to certain groups of individuals under the guise of advancing racial equity. The Restaurant Revitalization Fund launched by SBA in May shut out thousands of American small businesses from receiving aid simply because they are not viewed as a ‘priority’ by the current administration. Now more than ever, SBA’s programs are crucial to the success of American small businesses and should be open to all entrepreneurs in need, not just those that fall under a certain group or category,” Congressman Hagedorn told Fox Business. “To be clear, saving spots for business owners that have certain racial, economic, or social qualities is reverse discrimination and un-American. The SBA must reject all forms of discrimination and ensure that resources are available to small business owners of all backgrounds.”

That aid and others with those restrictions is reverse discrimination AND thinly veiled reparations!

Totally evil and sickening.
