Stunning: DHS solicited bids for vendor to handle 65,000 unaccompanied minors -- IN JANUARY!

By Thomas Lifson June 20, 2014

The Obama administration’s claim to have been surprised by the wave of children flooding over out borders may turn out to be another political lie of the year. Sundance of Conservative Treehouse noticed a very peculiar advertisement:

On January 29th of this year, the federal government posted an advertisement seeking bids for a vendor contract to handle “Unaccompanied Alien Children“.

Not just any contract mind you, but a very specific contract – for a very specific number of unaccompanied minors: 65,000.

•  Why would DHS and ICE be claiming “surprise” by the current influx of unaccompanied minors on the border in June, when they were taking bids for an exact contract to handle the exact situation in January?

• Secondly, how could they possibly  anticipate 65,000 unaccompanied minors would be showing up at the border, when the most ever encountered in a previous year was 5,000 total ?

The bid specifics are even more suspicious:

[...] 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.

[...] In addition, the Contractor shall have personnel who are able to communicate with juveniles in their own designated language(s).

Link to the ad  here.

This stinks to high heaven. It is time to subpoena the people who placed the ad to give testimony in Congress. We may have a Cloward-Piven strategy on illegal immigration underway.

One interesting thing I've noted in this forum in the past days since this invasion of illegals became known:
I don't see postings here anymore to the tune of, "we need immigration reform because it's the only choice we have", or "we need immigration reform if we're to curry favor with the Hispanics".

That meme certainly seems dead.

There are a number of folks here who used to put that up, whenever the subject of the illegals came up, and the question was raised to wit, "what are we going to do about this?" And their answer ALWAYS was, "we have no choice now but to pass immigration reform".

I sense these folks are learning about the futility of "immigration reform", in a way similar to Jimmy Carter got re-educated about the Soviets after they invaded Afghanistan.

What's going on here is intentional, and to a greater purpose, but that purpose isn't obvious to many.

Permit me to explain.

The left (that means the current DC government, for what it's worth, including ALL the administrative and regulatory agencies) is going to use this "crisis" to change what the perceived concept of "immigration" is.

Currently, there is "legal" immigration, and there are those who enter the country illegally. The left realizes that to win, it must wipe out the concept of "legal" immigration, and by doing so render "the motions" of entering the country "illegally" moot, and meaningless.

If they succeed (we seem to be headed in that direction right now), there will no longer be "illegal" immigration because it will have become impossible to enforce "legal" immigration.

The end result will be only "immigration", without the modifying concepts of "legal" or "illegal".

In practical terms, that means that anyone who can cross the southern border will become an "immigrant" by virtue of simply getting here.

The left stands a very good chance of success, for two very important reasons:
1. There is no effective "border" any more, and
2. The concept of "deportation" seems to be becoming passe.

We do not and can NEVER AGAIN have an effective border until we construct a solid border barrier to thwart most attempts at entry. If the federal government is no longer willing to do this, then the border states must.

Texas, in particular, is in great danger. Unless the hordes are kept out, Texas is going to "turn to the blue" much quicker than it might have otherwise. I sense that this, too, is a "part of their plan".

The final step may be for Obama to declare some sort of "blanket pardon" at the end of his term, for all those who have crossed the border up to that point. Before you jump in and say that he doesn't have the power to do this (that is, to issue a pardon to a group of individuals vis-a-vis a single named individual), how did Jimmy Carter manage to do it regarding the draft-dodgers?

To repeat, it almost seems as if all this is "a part of the plan".

How are they going to be stopped?
