Posted on 06/20/2014 2:24:19 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
On January 29, 2014, the Federal Government posted an ad on their BizOpps website seeking escorts for unaccompanied illegal alien children. If this doesn't prove that the entire mess with all the illegals flooding our country was planned by this administration, nothing ever will. Here is the entire document that lays out the "requirements" to become such an escort: (I have highlighted interesting points) MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!!!
Procurement Type: Request for Information (RFI)/Sources Sought
Title: Escort Services for Unaccompanied Alien Children
Classification Code: V- Transportation/Travel/Relocation
NAICS code: 561612
Primary POC: Rachel Ali, Contract Specialist/ Rachel.Ali@ice.dhs.gov
Secondary POC: Tony Ross, Contracting Officer/ Tony.Ross@ice.dhs.gov
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.
B. ICE Standards/Special Requirements
The contractor is required to perform in accordance with the ICE Performance Based National Detention Standards (PBNDS 2011), all ICE policies related to the transportation of juveniles (see the ICE Family Residential Standards at http://www.ice.gov/detention-standards/family-residential/) as well as the Flores Settlement Agreement, the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008, and the Homeland Security Act of 2002. In cases where other standards conflict with DHS/ICE Policy or Standards, DHS/ICE Policy and Standards will prevail. ICE Inspectors will conduct periodic inspections to assure compliance of the aforementioned standards.
Personnel shall have the knowledge and experience to transport individual children with special needs. Often times, children with special needs may require a transportation method that is time saving and direct, i.e. by commercial airline. Contractor shall also provide for accompanying medical care. Additionally, due to exigent circumstances, the Contractor shall be required to transport juveniles via ground to HUB airports or other staging areas that are not located within the area of initial apprehension.
The Contractor shall follow a fully developed training curriculum and transporting staff shall have the highest level of competency possible. Areas of training shall include, but are not limited to the following: Airport rules and regulations for travelers, crisis intervention, child development, working with and transporting youth with special needs, transporting youth with behavioral problems, CPR & First Aid training, non-secured UAC policy and procedures and the implementation of contingency plans in the event of a crisis during transport, which include de-escalation techniques.
· Background Investigations and Suitability Screenings will be conducted on all Contract Employees by the Office of Professional Responsibility and Personnel Security Unit (OPR-OSU).
· The Contractor shall agree that each employee working on this contract will successfully pass the DHS Employment Eligibility (E-Verify) program operated by USICS to establish work authorization and U.S. Citizenship.
· Employees must reside in the United States.
C. Contract Type
The Government anticipates awarding a five (5) year Fixed Price Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract vehicle consisting of a one year base period, and four (4) option years. The Service Contract

The anticipated release date of the solicitation is March 3, 2014. The solicitation closing date will be thirty (30) days after release of the Request for Proposal (RFP).
Projected Set-Aside: All business sizes are welcome to participate; however, ICE is trying to determine small business interest, particularly HubZone companies. All information received in response in to this notice will be used to determine the appropriateness of any small business set-aside for this requirement.
D. Place of Performance:
Service Area: Throughout the Continental United States (US)
The area(s) or region(s) serviced may occur either with a phased approach over a period of several months to a full year. Alternatively, the Contractor shall perform the entire transportation function upon full funding.

This really looks like a job that no American should want.
Un Forking Believable !!!!! This man knows no bounds and God only knows what he has planned for the next 2 yrs.
From the moment these illegals enter the country, they are made to be dependent upon Government handouts and welfare payments
These payments have the net effect of subsidizing the Illegal alien's low wage lifestyle with Government hand out money which allows them to work at jobs for wages much lower than the Middle Class Americans with whom they compete for jobs and wages.
This amounts to a one - two punch to the gut for Middle Class Americans.
First, middle class wages are suppressed and driven down due to job competition from an infinite supply of cheap imported labor due to the massive influx of illegal aliens
Second, middle class wages are suppressed and driven down even further because the Federal Government is subsidizing the wages of this infinite supply of cheap imported labor by providing them welfare payments that allow them to accept work at wages below the actual local cost of living in a given area. These Government welfare payments have the added effect of making the new illegal immigrants totally dependent upon the government to help them make ends meet because they are working below cost.
The net effect of the combination of these two wage deflators is devastating and is destroying the number of good paying jobs for all Americans, especially the middle class
This is the ultimate business subsidy because American business is getting a constant , unlimited (just ask Joe Biden) supply of cheap government subsidized unskillled illegal immigrant labor .
The bitter irony of it all is that the American Middle Class is providing the bulk of the tax money that is going to subsidize the destruction of the wages of the good paying jobs the Middle Class depend upon for their livelihood .
Business gets access to cheap, government subsidized low wage labor
Government gets a new class of uneducated but mobilizable voters with Third World voting habits who are totally dependent and controlled by government welfare payments
The American Middle Class gets screwed because their tax dollars are paying for the Government welfare subsidies to the glut of illegal aliens in the labor pool which are driving down their wages and destroying the American Middle Class lifestyle.
The Government is also trying to repeat this viscous cycle with the job segment for higher paying, more skilled jobs using the H1-B visa programs
It’s almost like this administration is telegraphing their punches, just like catholic school nuns.
UN aren't necessarily American, right?
According to comments at one blog discussing the subject:
The vehicles appear to come equipped with M231 firing weapon ports. The question that you really need to ask is, are they being produced here and then shipped overseas, or have they been built somewhere else and are now being delivered here for use by international UN troops on American soil?
We're onto the despicable game---we will not subsidize Democrat vote-buying schemes. Send them back at once.

Thanks for those phone numbers for Congress!!!
Escort Services for children?!?!?!?!?!!?
This is sick. Reads like a Nazi Relocation Kamp.
The Russians always said,” America will destroy itself from the Inside”.
I think we have arrived at that Point in our History, with Obama in Charge.
In this article children were in a posh camp....
and it states at the bottom of the article that HHS - bought the children all new clothes, backpacks, etc. housed in a camp - described as like a PRISON setting.
Also note: spokeswoman for BCFS, a global system of health and human services nonprofit organizations GLOBAL (sounds like Agenda 21) and HHS NON PROFIT - ???
THIS makes it sound like the children were being held there until they could drop them off to appear to be new kids coming across the border?
HHS has 110 case managers - hmmm - taxpayer funded - and DPS - “guarding” them - thats Texas Department of Public Safety Director (DPS) - police - which is what Rick Perry and Abbott have deployed to stop the influx of immigrants.
Undocumented children housed at Bruceville-Eddy Camp
But Krista Piferrer, a spokeswoman for BCFS, a global system of health and human services nonprofit organizations that contracts with HHS to assist with the undocumented children, confirmed that the children were kept at Greene Family Camp and at similar camps in South Texas.
While she declined to say how many children were brought to Greene camp, Piferrer said they since have been moved to Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio and Fort Sill in Lawton, Oklahoma.
The Administration for Children and Families, a division of HHS, is one of the agencies trying to handle the increasing number of children from Mexico and Central America, estimated this year at 47,000, who cross the border without their parents.
The couple and a source familiar with the operation, who declined to be named because he was not authorized to speak about the situation, said the children were guarded by government agents and off-duty officers from the Department of Public Safety, McLennan County Sheriffs Office, and the Hewitt, Woodway and Lorena police departments.
May 30 was their last day out there. They moved them out, but before they did, a group came in and went through the kids bags like they were at an airport and took stuff away from them, the source said. HHS bought them all new clothes, new shoes and new duffel bags. They said they try to reunite them with their parents, but it seemed to me like they were being held in more of a prison setting.
This is another move to destabilize the country by the current regime.
Yep, Obama planned this takeover of America before he was annointed in 2008.
Obama will be going full throttle with all of his plans now in the remaining 2 1/2 years with nothing to stop him.
Rush had it right yesterday. He said the Obama does not care about any Democrats being re-elected whatsoever.
Only his agenda to fundamentally change America is what matters to him.
The slave labor is why Wall Street loves Obama.
How long before one of those men being sent into the meat grinder is arrested and charged with a War Crime for attempting to defend himself?
Undocumented children were housed at Bruceville-Eddy Camp....but it sounds more like the children were being held until they could drop them off to make it appear they are new kids coming across the border.....
NOTE WELL: HHS has 110 case managers - guarding them.
I demand HHS people here and in DC, be arrested and prosecuted for abuse of public office and using tax dollars for illegal purposes.
SAY WHAT? DPS was also guarding them. DPS is the Texas Department of Public Safety police - which is what Rick Perry and Abbott have deployed to stop the influx of immigrants.
Ask what they intend to do about the massive invasion of illegal aliens into Texas, bringing crime, disease, drugs and unbelievable expense to the state to care for them.
This is sheer insanity!
HOUSTON, TexasGovernor Rick Perry (R-TX) appeared on Fox News Fox and Friends show and said Texas lacks the resources and manpower to secure the 1,200 mile Texas border... BS!
Other Texas elected officials, speaking on condition of anonymity have told Breitbart Texas that Texas does, in fact, have the resources to conduct not only a surge operation, but a prolonged border control operation that would secure the Texas border with Mexico.
Now, Perry says he will do something. I'll believe it when I see it.
DO N'T LET THE MUZZIE GET AWAY WITH HIS CLOWARD-PIVEN SCHEME! DON'T LET HIM DESTROY TEXAS.
