As we warned was going to happen 6 months ago, the Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement has awarded orders for a massive surge of clothing and hygiene support for what appears to be a surge illegal immigration refuge camp being set up near the Port Isabel Immigration and Detention Center [PIDC] in Los Fresnos, Tx.
Based on recent DHS Fedbizopps documents, the PIDC is rated to hold a maximum of 1,200 MALE detainees. "The breakdown is as follows: 10% Criminal (9% Medium Risk, 1% High Risk)"
The average stay time at the locations is approximately 3 weeks. Interestingly enough PIDC just scrapped requirements for a "Population Surge Plan" in a Detention Guard contract. With that information in mind, and the orders for 50,000+ toothbrushes, Socks, Shoes, plus similarity sized orders of Bras, Panties, and Mens Shirts ordered to arrive at PIDC within the next 30 days, its pretty clear that a separately run refugee camp city is being set up near PIDC. We estimate the average population will be around 20,000 detainees.
PDIC is a good location for such a neighboring refugee camp because it has a "Con-Air" JPATS Justice Prisoner & Alien Transportation System Airport attached to the grounds. Source documentation shows that detainees that are thru traffic are not given a uniform or clothes, where as illegals being held on detention do get shoes, clothes and etc, with the clothing/ laundry cycle being once per week.
Obama Policy Shift:The illegal immigrant population is surging because President Obama has lured them in by dangling an amnesty carrot in front of them. The methodology has been for the illegals to turn themselves in at the border, where they would be documented and rapidly transported and released in locations away from the border. The massive orders for detainee 'uniforms' indicates a faux get tough response. In that regard, a Congressional compromise may be under way to get these people rapidly adjudicated through immigration courts as part of an amnesty plan.
Notes of interest:The 50,000 toothbrushes ordered is indicative of the size of the influx expected in the next 30 days as toothbrushes are an individual item that won't be reissued to a different detainee.
The Mens shirt requirement was for 4oz shirts; this is an unusually thin shirt. The industry standard "thin" t-shirt is 4.5 oz. This may indicate that DHS is directing contracts to a specific manufacturer.
Additionally, DHS ordered shirts ranging in size from Small to 2xl, but they ordered ZERO xl shirts. This may mean DHS has a full stock of XL men's shirts on hand.
The requirements for these orders specify no loading dock, aka pick up truck delivery.
