Homeland Security Contracts For Vast New Detention Camps

Posted on Thursday, February 02 at 05:38 by Milton
The contract -- announced Jan. 24 by the engineering and construction firm KBR -- calls for preparing for "an emergency influx of immigrants, or to support the rapid development of new programs" in the event of other emergencies, such as "a natural disaster." The release offered no details about where Halliburton was to build these facilities, or when.

    These civilian inmate labour camps could also be used to house thousands of debt ridden US citizens if they are unable to pay their bills. (They may also be used to house what the administration refers to as dissidents.) The US economy is on life support right now and when there is a “correction” job losses could be massive and home values and stock equities will drop like a stone. I don't want to appear overly cynical here but the US administration understands this. The new bankruptcy laws alone seem to attest to this fact. Getting out of debt is the best tactic to avoid what seems like certain financial disaster for millions of US and Canadian citizens.

    An "emergency influx of immigrants." "Immigrants." Read: "Refugees." Refugees from another country (or possibly even domestic) from a natural disaster or economic collapse or "terrorism." Like the refugee camps after Katrina. Which people are still living in and are going to be for the forseeable future.

    How often has this occurred in the past? Hopefully the Katrina victims won't be herded like cattle to a facility like this. Supposedly mobiles and hotels/motels are being provided now. One can assume these facilities may be used for another purpose.

    "Hopefully the Katrina victims won't be herded like cattle to a facility like this. Supposedly mobiles and hotels/motels are being provided now. One can assume these facilities may be used for another purpose."

    Yeah, right.

    After Katrina left thousands homeless on the Gulf Coast, officials in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama began calling for trailers to provide temporary shelter. More than 100,000 were requested, and somebody decided to create holding areas for the trailers outside the hurricane zone. Today, legions of wide-bodied mobile homes sit empty at Hope's Municipal Airport, a sprawling former military base. After all these months, storm victims can't seem to get the trailers, which are proving a mixed blessing to Hope and Arkansas.

    "It just boggles the mind in this day and time," said Mark Keith, director of the Hope-Hempstead County Chamber of Commerce in an interview at truthout.org. "There are 10,770 trailers at Hope Airport. That's one for every man, woman and child in Hope, with a few left over to send to Emmet, down the road."

    Sitting empty. But there are still tens of thousands still in FEMA "camps" throughout the south. We just never hear of them in the MSM, because reporting is not allowed- we have to dig for this stuff in the blogosphere.
