ICE to hire contractor to transport 225,000 migrants to shelters across the US

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T


The Trump administration is looking to hire a private contractor that will be responsible for transporting approximately 225,000 migrant children and families to shelters across the country over the next five years as they wait for their asylum claims to be processed.

ICE (the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency) is seeking the services of a “highly responsible” contractor that “fully embraces the philosophy” of treating all unaccompanied minors (UACs) and family units (FAMUs) with “dignity and respect,” according to a federal procurement document dated May 13.

The private company will be hired to transport approximately 60,000 people a year. It will work to arrange commercial flights and ground transportation for migrant children up to age 17 as well as adults with children and will provide food, clothing and hygiene products during transit.

“Sometimes the contractor will have to plan commercial or charter flights in a period of less than 24 hours,” the document states, highlighting an increased need for “on demand escort-services” as the Trump administration addresses a large influx of migrants from Central America who come to the U.S.-Mexico border to claim asylum.

President Trump announced a plan to “transform” America’s immigration system on Thursday, introducing a system to favor admissions based on job skills rather than family ties. The proposal would judge immigrants with a points-based system that would favor high-skilled workers -- accounting for age, English proficiency, education and whether the applicant has a well-paying job offer.

Over the course of a five-year contract, the migrants will be relocated from their points of entry or staging locations to Office of Refugee Resettlement shelters or family residential centers across the nation.

The document did not specify where exactly the migrants will be moved but said the Office of Refugee Resettlement has the “sole authority” to place unaccompanied minors and families.

“ICE has zero tolerance for any forms of sexual abuse and assault,” the document states while delegating the responsibility to vet new hires to the contracting company, business publication Quartz, which originally obtained the copy of the federal document, reported.

Yep, that was you 1st. 

So HOW was I wrong in stating that "YOU were the one who said it was simple 1st."? 

Or are you claiming I was wrong in stating that Trump is ignoring ALL legal subpoenas? Did Trump fulfill a subpoena that I didn't hear about 1st?

You thought wrong. I'm not surprised as Republicans have been lying about this to their constituents for a long time, so it's not your fault.

"Any alien who is physically present in the United States or who arrives in the United States (whether or not at a designated port of arrival and including an alien who is brought to the United States after having been interdicted in international or United States waters), irrespective of such alien’s status, may apply for asylum in accordance with this section or, where applicable, section 1225(b) of this title."

Seems like a nice thing. Getting transported to a shelter has to be better than some makeshift facility at the border in the middle of nowhere. As long as we are identifying people and we know where they are, I think that has to be an improvement over a system that either houses people in substandard conditions or lets people without legal status run amok in the country.

Purportedly, the Illegal Aliens are coming here because they no longer want to live in squalid and poverty ridden countries.  With the U.S. providing them with food, clothing, medical, education, and shelters, don't really see how they can be living in substandard conditions - unless they went back to their home country - which they should do.

They don't have "legal status" to roam the U.S. while they are waiting for their hearing dates.  However, due to the influx of HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS, the government has no choice but to allow them to be released with no work permits, SS#'s, Fed/State ID's, so, yes, they are running amok in this country.  Hell, my town just had 7,000 Illegal Aliens with "supposed" Asylum requests dumped on us WITH NO FRIGGIN' WARNING and it is already causing havoc.  So, yes, they're running amok.

I live 52 miles NNW of the El Paso/Juarez International Bridge, 26 miles West of a recently closed border checkpoint, 31 miles South of another recently closed border checkpoint and 33 miles East of another recently closed border checkpoint.  Our town has had 8,200 Illegal Aliens/Asylum Seekers dumped at our bus station, airport, city community center and six of the eight Catholic churches.  Our wonderful and very generous Governor has just bused 55 Illegal Aliens/Asylum Seekers North to Denver on 3 buses - 55 - yeah - quite a dent in the mess we're manhandling.  Oh yeah, she also took the National Guard out and had the DoD personnel moved out because as she and another wonderful and very generous Congressional Representatives have said - "There's no problem at the border" when neither of them have even been down here.

Trump is "supposed" to be a leader, not a manager.  Leader's don't "Manage" - if they do, they are no longer a Leader - they become "managers".  Managers direct groups of people or organizations and THEY REPORT TO SOMEONE ABOVE THEM.  However, they DO NOT RUN THE SHIP - the leader does.

No, a "real" Manager doesn't throw their subordinates under the bus.  Neither does a good Leader.

That would make too much sense 1st … as the impoverished in the US appear to be seen as not having it as bad as say someone coming from Venezuela... never mind that many said illegal immigrants spent thousands of dollars to pay a coyote ..

Perhaps the homeless vets and fellow citizens can apply for asylum and get a plane ticket to a place to live with a roof over it?

Thanks for letting me vent ..!

And I wonder why our government can't help the 560,000 homeless U. S. CITIZENS with the same or better care than they are affording the Illegal Aliens.

Look no further that Trump's budgets for your answer.

Get off your Trump hate wagon.  It is the state's and city's responsibility to take care of THEIR population - not the U. S. government.

Oooooooo - I seeeeeeee - you wanna add them to the welfare rolls and make them good Dems/Libs, eh?

You confuse disgust for hate.

Really 1st?

Who is responsible for homeless vets?

There are 67,500 homeless vets now, UP from about 40,000 in 2016.

Trump eviscerated the voucher program which hurt vets. You must be proud.

Who is responsible for 25,000 military families on SNAP? Sure as hell not the state's and/or cities where they're stationed. 

Oooooooo - I seeeeeeee - you wanna add them to the welfare rolls and make them good Dems/Libs, eh?

Again, I don't think you DO see...

Wow - why don't you further subdivide them into male/female, gay/straight, white/black, educated/non-educated, short/tall, skinny/overweight, left-handed/right-handed, brown eyes/blue eyes, bald/full head of hair, single/divorced/married and, yeah, the 67,500 vets out of the 560,000 (12% BTW) are taken care of(?) by the VA administration and the 25,000(?????)(need a link on that one) are taken care of by the state.

As you WELL KNOW, there are exceptions to almost everything - you obviously know because you continue to throw them into comments in your efforts to PROVE other commenters wrong as most folks aren't aware of the exceptions.

Point being made - 560,000 U.S. CITIZENS are homeless - why is the U.S. taking better care of ILLEGAL ALIENS than they are of their own U.S. CITIZENS who are homeless?

Answer the point and quit trying to divert.

That's a BIG number people for you to view as 'exceptions'. 

BTFW, I note that you ignored that the number almost DOUBLED under Trump. 

Point being made - 560,000 U.S. CITIZENS are homeless - why is the U.S. taking better care of ILLEGAL ALIENS than they are of their own U.S. CITIZENS who are homeless?

Since I don't accept your premise that the people who are the topic of the seed are 'illegal aliens' [they're NOT], I don't accept the premise of your question. 

Funny that you ask why the "U.S." isn't taking better care of homeless citizens and then insist that states and cities are responsible for doing so. 

BTW, the US spent at least 18 billion on assistance for the homeless in 2017 [Obama budget]. That funding has been cut in both of Trump's budgets.
