Most everyone is aware of what has been happening on our borders over the last few weeks and have been in shock at how something so "overwhelming" and "out of control" could have happened so quickly. Well, now we know the "how"..

We are asking all FCTP members around the country to engage in an email/phone campaign to send a strong message to ALL ELECTED OFFICIALS that we will not accept or tolerate the continued refusal to secure our borders AND we will not accept or tolerate the placement of these illegals in our state.

AND, we are AWARE that this entire mass entry is the result of a PLANNED program developed by our FEDERAL government for the purpose of OVERWHELMING our system. JUST MORE CHAOS TO ADD TO THE LONG LIST.



Below is an article from the American Thinker which clearly demonstrates that this was an orchestrated event. The documents supporting this comment are provided in the link below as well as the actual verbiage in the REQUEST FOR INFORMATION. (RFI)



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

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 complete document for the Bid is below)

[...] 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).

This stinks to high heaven. It is time to subpoena the people who placed the ad to give testimony in Congress.

Classification Code: V- Transportation/Travel/Relocation

NAICS code: 561612

RFI stands for Request For Information.

A. Introduction

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 as well as the Flores Settlement Agreement, the Trafficking Victims Protection Re-authorization 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 d-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
Act is applicable to this acquisition. All required clauses, provisions will be included in the solicitation and resulting contractual instrument.

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. For example, the following two circumstances may occur: (1) The contractor could initially provide transportation services only in the Southwest Region of the U.S. for those juveniles who are apprehended in the state of Texas; or, (2) The Contractor may be required to provide transportation services for all juveniles who are in DHS custody throughout the continental U.S.

I didn't think you would answer the question. Because the answer is the opposite of how you feel and what you think about yourself. You consider yourself a good Christian woman first and foremost. But when push comes to shove, when the decision actually requires more than lip service, when it makes you more vulnerable, you like the apostle, deny Christ. If it helps you, Jesus was of the Jewish faith, not a Christian. Christianity came after he was long gone' so you can follow those who claim to be his followers, and who adapt their beliefs to fit their circumstance.
Many of said, "God, family,country." You just put them in whatever order makes yourself happy. When I see fellow souls in need, I will fight to help them. It isn't the popular thing to do, it is what I feel is right. I could be wrong. Who really knows what God expects from us. But the God I believe that inhabits my soul, offers me no other choice than to help the least of my brothers. And these children certainly qualify as the least among us, as witnessed by your own words. Peace.

Amanda, you are out of your mind.  This will be the very last time I waste my time on any of your stupid comments.

Comment by amanda choate on July 20, 2014 at 10:19am
And on this beautiful Sunday morn I ask you this, as a Christian. Would Jesus send those children back?
Comment by Patricia M. McBride on July 19, 2014 at 8:48pm

Woops Amanda,

NO Glenn Beck is not on "your side".  He is helping because he can, but he also wants each and everyone of these folks sent back to their own country(watched an interview with Beck and those were the words that he said.........).  The only reason he is helping is because he is a Christian and feels he needs to do that, but said it does not counter his resolve they be sent back to their own countries.  And gee thanks so much for getting all that lovely information from the ubra liberal sources, but I watched a news program a few days ago about this very thing that had all the numbers and suspect they got accurate ones!

Comment by amanda choate on July 19, 2014 at 6:47pm
Beck and Hewitt and Pope Francis are on my side.

Here are how some Americans reacted:

Here are the murder rates, that is for the whole country, the cities are worse by far:

Maybe she comes here to get educated??? Can't figure out any other reason

Comment by Patricia M. McBride on July 16, 2014 at 8:21am

Wrong again Amanda.  You need to stay on top of these things.  Since King Obama said they were leaving because of having their existence threatened, someone did some fact checking, and the crime rate in 2 of the countries they are coming from is lower than the US and the 3rd country has exactly the same crime rate.  The same hold true with unemployment.  And there is that nasty little skewing of our numbers which ignores all the folks who have given up looking.  Hopefully, the unemployment numbers for the other 3 countries are more reliable than ours.

People coming across the border are being asked why they have come to the US and over 90% said they have come because this administration will not send children or mothers with children back (he will let them stay here).  So no, it isn't crime, and no it isn't unemployment.

Go spread your false hoods where people are uninformed and you might have a chance of feeding them bad info and having them believe it.

Comment by amanda choate on July 16, 2014 at 7:28am

The current law requires that unaccompanied minors are given a hearing and it is then determined if they come from a place in the world that their very existence is threatened just by being from there. If not, if life just sucks, sorry you were born in a place where life and liberty are held in low regard and have a good trip home. God bless America.

Collecting for our Bahamian Neighbors

Good morning!

We spent last week wondering if we would be hit by Hurricane Dorian.  Thankfully we were spared.  However, the Bahamas were not so lucky.  I am sure you have seen the devastation there.

My daughter has a friend (a nurse) who is arranging multiple trips to the area and will be collecting supplies to take to those areas.  If you would like to help, we will collect things at…
