“Unaccompanied Alien Children” – January 2014 RFP

The following information was uncovered by a friend of McHenry County Blog from a January 29, 2014, Request for Proposal from ICE, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement part of the Department of Homeland Security:

“ICE [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] is seeking the services of a responsible vendor that shares the philosophy of treating all UAC with dignity and respect, while adhering to standard operating procedures and policies that allow for an effective, efficient, and incident free transport.

The Contractor shall provide unarmed escort staff, including management, supervision, manpower, training, certifications, licenses, drug testing, equipment, and supplies necessary to provide on-demand escort services for non-criminal/non-delinquent unaccompanied alien children ages infant to 17 years of age, seven (7) days a week, 365 days a year.

Transport will be required for either category of UAC or individual juveniles, to include both male and female juveniles.

There will be approximately 65,000 UAC in total: 25% local ground transport, 25% via ICE charter and 50% via commercial air.”

  1. The social fabric of our Nation is being torn apart.

    The illegal alien problem did not start with this President.

    The prior President sent the National Guard to the southern border but they were not permitted to carry firearms.

    Why do my fellow citizens not surround their Congressional offices and demand that current immigration laws are enforced and our borders / ports of entry secured?

    Do they not realize that in addition to the human traffic, there is a phenomenal amount of illegal drugs brought across the borders?

    Simple answer: G-R-E-E-D.

    Why are people who have the ability to enter our country illegally or overstay visas given priority over people who wait for YEARS to go through the legal process?

  2. Excellent article about “the wave” you included Cal.

    It was very informative and people should read it.
