This may assist the undecided and has been posted numerous times.
I hope Mr V. includes this readily available public notice but I doubt he will.
Over the years FEMA and DHS have flip flopped on there intended purpose which certainly
gives one pause to wonder.

KBR Awarded U.S. Department of Homeland Security Contingency Support Project for Emergency Support Services
Arlington, Virginia - January 24, 2006 - KBR announced today that its Government and Infrastructure division has been awarded an Indefinite
Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract to support the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)
facilities in the event of an emergency. KBR is the engineering and construction subsidiary of Halliburton (NYSE:HAL).
With a maximum total value of $385 million over a five-year term, consisting of a one-year based period and four one-year options, the competitively
awarded contract will be executed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Fort Worth District. KBR held the previous ICE contract from 2000 through
"We are especially gratified to be awarded this contract because it builds on our extremely strong track record in the arena of emergency operations
support," said Bruce Stanski, executive vice president, KBR Government and Infrastructure. "We look forward to continuing the good work we have been
doing to support our customer whenever and wherever we are needed."
The contract, which is effective immediately, provides for establishing temporary detention and processing capabilities to augment existing ICE
Detention and Removal Operations (DRO) Program facilities in the event of an emergency influx of immigrants into the U.S., or to support the rapid
development of new programs. The contingency support contract provides for planning and, if required, initiation of specific engineering, construction
and logistics support tasks to establish, operate and maintain one or more expansion facilities.
The contract may also provide migrant detention support to other U.S. Government organizations in the event of an immigration emergency, as well as
the development of a plan to react to a national emergency, such as a natural disaster. In the event of a natural disaster, the contractor could be
tasked with providing housing for ICE personnel performing law enforcement functions in support of relief efforts.
ICE was established in March 2003 as the largest investigative arm of the Department of Homeland Security. ICE is comprised of four integrated
divisions that form a 21st century law enforcement agency with broad responsibilities for a number of key homeland security priorities.

contractor, or providing small capital construction, KBR delivers world-class service and performance. KBR employs more than 60,000 people in 43
