U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), a component of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), has a continuing and mission critical responsibility for accepting custody of Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) from U.S. Border Patrol and other Federal agencies and transporting these juveniles to Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) shelters located throughout the continental United States. ICE 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. Escort services include, but are not limited to, assisting with: transferring physical custody of UAC from DHS to Health and Human Services (HHS) care via ground or air methods of transportation (charter or commercial carrier), property inventory, providing juveniles with meals, drafting reports, generating transport documents, maintaining/stocking daily supplies, providing and issuing clothing as needed, coordinating with DHS and HHS staff, travel coordination, limited stationary guard services to accommodate for trip disruptions due to inclement weather, faulty equipment, or other exigent circumstances. In emergency situations, the Contractor shall be called on to provide temporary shelter locations (such as trailers) with shower facilities for juveniles who are pending placement with HHS when bed space is unavailable nationwide for extended periods of time. The Contractor shall provide temporary guard services and other support as necessary during these emergencies.
In addition, the Contractor shall have personnel who are able to communicate with juveniles in their own designated language(s). While this may not require each employee to be fluent in all of the encountered languages, personnel should have access to and knowledge of translation services.

The federal government of the United States has made preparations not to deport these illegal invaders, but to settle them within the boundaries of the continental U.S.
This is treason. This fits the definition of high crimes and misdemeanors. This is an impeachable offense for everyone involved from the White House to the lowliest office clerk in the Department of
Housing Illegals Homeland Security. Forget about Iraq, we already messed that country up forever. It’s time to put our own house in order.
And here’s how to start:
1. Seal the southern border. Forget increasing the number of Border Patrol agents, put the U.S. military on the border with orders to shoot first and ask questions later. Illegals will stop running across the border when all they are going to get for their trouble is a bullet in the head.
2. Cancel all visas and green cards. Give all holders of these items 3 months to get their stuff together and get the hell out of our country. This goes for all of them, including graduate students, professors, and scientists.
3. End all welfare and other government goodies for people who can’t prove that they are American citizens. One reason why these people are flooding here is that once they get here, they get food and shelter and money for free. Oh, and don’t forget that the EMTALA law means that taxpayers and others end up paying their medical bills. End these practices, and the flood of illegal immigrants will slow to a trickle. The federal government should also end the fiction that anyone born withing the borders of the U.S. is automatically a U.S. citizen.
4. Round up and deport all illegal immigrants immediately. Anyone in the country who did not follow U.S. immigration laws is a criminal by definition. As such, they have no legal rights. They aren’t covered by the Constitution, or any other law of our country. As such, we should do to them what other countries do to their illegal immigrants.
Deportation is the most humane thing to do. The Mexican government has been known to jail and kill illegal immigrants from Guatemala. Which begs the question: just how are all of these children making it from Central America to the U.S. without being detained by Mexican officials?
