Recent executive orders from President Trump on immigration

Recent executive orders from President Trump on immigration have provoked reactions aplenty from citizens all over America. In Iowa City for example, angry protesters gathered to burn multiple American flags. Allegedly, protesters wanted to take a strong stand against racial and social injustice, as well as US imperialism.

Paul Osgerby, who attended the protest, stated: “When I see the flag, I see racial injustice. I see social injustice from Native American genocide to African-American slavery to failing to recognize women as citizens until the 20th century.”

Amid the chaos and the anger however, many are hailing FedEx driver Matt Uhrin as the hero of Iowa City’s flag-burning protest – after he intervened and put a stop to the demonstration with a fire-extinguisher. Partaking in such a political activity can sometimes compromise your employment, however, and many were concerned that Iowa City’s hero may be out of a job after his exploits.

People on Twitter were quick to jump to the FedEx driver’s defence, with @JhettMc15 tweeting: “I have nothing but the upmost respect for the FedEx guy! Burning the flag is treason and absolute disrespect to those who died defending it.”

What’s more, a petition was created to demand that Matt Uhrin keep his job: “Let’s make sure Matt Uhrin keeps his job at FedEx. He was standing up for our American flag and should be commended, not punished!” The petition received over 12,000 signatures. Now, FedEx have spoken regarding Matt Uhrin’s involvement in the protest.

Thankfully, Matt Uhrin will keep his job despite being involved in this high-profile protest. In a statement on Twitter, FedEx stated that: “We have reviewed the matter in Iowa City involving driver Matt Uhrin. He remains a FedEx employee & we have no plans to change his status.” Intervening in such a politically charged protest may have put FedEx’s brand at risk, but the company have sensibly decided to allow Matt Uhrin to keep his job.
