Detention Camps!

Secret Detention Camps!
And new Million Dollar Camps in broad daylight!
It kind of reminds me how the Government rounded up the Indians in the Modoc Wars of 1873
Immigration Arrests!
Protesters Arrests?
So in one hand it could be FEMA, or on the other hand it could be The Homeland Security, or the INS, but none the less in preparation for their arrival, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) have backed the National Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004, That means they fell mandated to provide 40,000 new beds and barracks for foreign-born refugees at four undisclosed locations over the next five years.
The ICE being the ¡§new¡¨ what we used to know as the INS guys.

So then I see these pictures and read this article on a FEMA camp in New Orleans¡K. WOW!

Then I watch this video about an ARMY- FEMA camp
And it looks like a possible up-n-coming detention camp.
The video mentions the intention of FEMA using these camps for detaining US citizens.
I too have heard of more of these camps springing up, as mentioned in this short video.

So meanwhile speaking of prisons ¡K.down on our hate filled border line with Mexico
Good ole Halliburton of course I read is getting a 385 million dollar contract to do the ¡§work¡¨!
Of building some temporary prisons for housing thousands
I read this next article about a big Super Prison being built in Texas ¡§due to the Mexican border problem¡¨ that America ¡§all of sudden seem to have?¡¨?
Read the whole article at  http://www.alternet.org/rights/36282/
It mentions how major Prison(s) are being built and funded to house thousands
Not to mention as it seems that Dick Cheney is making his usual millions through KBR.

This next link is from the city of Taylor in Texas which is a local news source and it mentions the jobs that will be needed in these new ¡§super prisons¡¨ that are springing up
The last few lines are ripe with an ironic (sic) hunger for humans to put in their jail

See I had read this a few months back, from this site „³  http://alternet.org/rights/33295/
Which I quote¡K
¡§On Jan. 3, 2006, the Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) expanded an existing contract held by Halliburton subsidiary Kellogg, Brown and Root (KBR) and renewed it to accommodate up to 20,000 refugees from environmental and political disasters. A future expansion in 2008 calls for another 20,000 beds.¡¨

-- Now did you read the same word as I did?
--It was ¡K..¡¨Political disasters¡¨!??

I heard that the Sheridan Prison in Oregon had the capabilities of being a huge Detention Camp.

Here is a Who Is FEMA article that is a few years old?

And then saving a good link for last, check these FEMA Topic¡¦s out:

At least Halliburton et al, saved us the time and trouble of building
these camps. They will be useful to us when we incarcarate the enemies
of the Earthwalkers.....except Bush and cabal who most likely will be
skulking in their underground bunkers....the best permanent place for them.
