dark dealings going on in the US | 4:53 pm | 6 February 2006

Halliburton was awarded a $385 million dollar contract…

to build U.S. prisons for immigrants and disaster victims.

“The contract, which is effective immediately, provides for establishing temporary detention and processing capabilities to augment existing Immigration and Customs Enforcement Detention and Removal Operations Program facilities in the event of an emergency influx of immigrants into the U.S., or to support the rapid development of new programs,” Halliburton announced in a Jan. 24 press release.

Just what sort of “new programs” would require jailing immigrants and disaster victims has not been made public.

But in 2002, attorney general John Ashcroft announced his intention to build “enemy combatant” camps for U.S. citizens.

“Ashcroft’s plan, disclosed last week but little publicized, would allow him to order the indefinite incarceration of U.S. citizens and summarily strip them of their constitutional rights and access to the courts by declaring them enemy combatants,” the Los Angeles Times reported.
