FEMA camp in Texas

Every time you’re mocked and slapped with the label of “conspiracy theorist” for saying there are FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) camps in Amerika, just remind them of a fascinating 4-page KBR document, Project Overview and Anticipated Project Requirements, which is a solicitation for bids from subcontractors to provide services and supplies for FEMA camps.

KBR, Inc., formerly called Kellogg Brown & Root, is a top U.S. federal contractor and the largest non-union construction company in the United States. Formerly a subsidiary of Halliburton, KBR is headquartered in Houston. KBR and its predecessors have won many contracts with the U.S. military, including during World War II, Vietnam War and Operation Iraqi Freedom.

According to Project Overview and Anticipated Project Requirements,  “services will be required in each State within each of the five regions of the continental United States.” Each FEMA camp is estimated to “range in size from 301 to 2,000 persons for up to 30 days in length.”

Here’s a screen-shot of the map of the five regions, from page 1 of Project Overview and Anticipated Project Requirements:

FEMA camps in 5 U.S. regionsJust such a FEMA camp has been found 35 miles east of Austin, outside the small town of Taylor, Texas.

Melissa Melton reports for Activist Post, June 26, 2013, that while getting footage for a mini-documentary, she came across this FEMA camp near Taylor, which holds several hundreds, including illegal aliens, their American family members, and children.

FEMA camp TexasThe camp is called the T. Don Hutto Residential Center, and is administered by the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

FEMA camp in Taylor, TX

The residential center FEMA camp is designated for use under emergency rule, but presently houses illegal immigrants and resident aliens caught in legal limbo with ICE. At the same time, the camp’s FEMA designation also places it under FEMA command for civilian detainment in the event of an emergency, including civil unrest, economic collapse, stress from migration, natural disaster or terrorist attack, etc.

This is what the ICE “Fact Sheet” says:

The T. Don Hutto Residential Center (TDHRC) represents a unique and pioneering setting, offering the least restrictive environment permissible to manage persons in administrative U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody.

In keeping with the director’s call for civil detention reform, TDHRC represents a clear departure from historical detention settings. Residents experience expanded services that include free and open movement, recreational and educational participation, food services and medical and mental health care.

TDHRC’s person-centered philosophy guides every interaction with the residents by understanding the often complex circumstances surrounding their detention. TDHRC continues to fulfill the mission of ICE while at the same time recognizing and valuin]g the dignity of the individual.

Opened in Taylor, Texas (35 miles east of Austin), in May 2006, TDHRC has a capacity of up to 512 beds. The average length of stay is 31 days.

Tim Brown reports for Freedom Outpost that on January 23, 2013, Congressman Alcee Hastings (D-FL, 23rd District) introduced HR 390, the National Emergency Centers Establishment Act, but there is virtually no coverage of it.

If passed, HR 390 would authorize DHS to establish no less than six “emergency centers,” i.e., FEMA camps, on military installations within the borders of the United States.Alcee HastingsDemocrat Congressman Alcee Hastings

A previous version of the bill was introduced in 2009 by the same Congressman Hastings as HR 645, which died in committee. Congressman Ron Paul was asked in 2011 about HR 645 and whether or not it could lead to Americans being incarcerated in detention camps during a time of martial law. He responded, “Yeah, that’s their goal, they’re setting up the stage for violence in this country, no doubt about it.”

According to GovTrack, the new bill, HR 390, has a 3% chance of getting past the committee.

    Head on a swivel folks.

  2. OH WHOA!!!
    I know where Taylor, TX is! Hutto, TX is before you get to Taylor. I will have to be on the look out next time I am going to my mom’s in Palestine.

    Did the report say where this is exactly? …besides outside of Taylor.

  3. I wonder if this is where they are keeping the straw mat with my name on it?

  5. This could be real messy in zones 2 and 3…

  6. FEMA-Taylor-TX

    This property at 1001 Welch, Taylor, TX doesn’t exactly look like the latest Disney theme lodging.

    I know someone who can see the FEMA “facility” on Cape Cod from her home. We spoke of it recently, and agreed we both felt chilled about the proximity of the thing. :(

  7. Heard Bill Ayers planned something similar years ago… he a consultant, perhaps?

    • I saw a chilling testimony from a man who investigated the Weather Underground. He says they were in agreement that if and when they gained power, they would need a plan for dealing with political dissenters. They projected there would be a hard core that could not be “rehabilitated” at retraining facilities, and that such people would have to be removed.

  8. Here’s a long version:

  9. Here is an interview with Larry Grathwohl in 2012:

  10. Just one more youtube video interview with Larry Grathwohl:

  11. IN MEMORIAM

    RIP Larry Grathwohl, Weather Underground Infiltrator

    By PAUL KENGOR on 7.26.13 @ 6:08AM

    The nation’s leading authority on Obama friends Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn et al. has died.

    Do you know the name “Larry Grathwohl”? You should. What he did and lived to tell was shocking, and shouldn’t be forgotten. Stick with me and read these words, and pass them along. Here are words about a man whose work and life merit your attention and that of your fellow Americans…

    READ ON HERE

    • Good grief. We’ve lost another warrior. :(

      Be with God, Mr. Grathwohl. Know that your information and warning about Bill Ayers and the Weather Underground’s murderous genocidal agenda will not be forgotten. We will carry on your work.

      “Other evils there are that may come; for Sauron is himself but a servant or emissary. Yet it is not our part to master all the tides of the world, but to do what is in us for the succour of those years wherein we are set, uprooting the evil in the fields that we know, so that those who live after may have clean earth to till. What weather they shall have is not ours to rule.” –Gandalf, in J.R.R. Tolkien, LOTR: Return of the King, p. 160.

  12. This man’s testimony is so seismic in importance, I believe he should be the subject of an FOTM post.

    • TD,

      I was just about to suggest the same.

      I had posted his video in June 2010, “The Murderous Mind of the Radical Left” (http://fellowshipofminds.wordpress.com/2010/06/18/the-murderous-mind-of-the-radical-left/), but you’ve collected more info. If you can’t, I’ll put them together into a separate new post. But I can’t get to it until an hour later. I’ve got to work in the kitchen to prepare lunch-dinner.

      • Any of my efforts will be held up with an important meeting this afternoon, and another one tomorrow, followed by 4 hands-on tasks. If it can wait into the weekend I can dig in, but if you manage to get there first, I’ll be glad to help. This man was the first one talking about FEMA who I absolutely could not dismiss. His story rattled me.

  13. In my training to become a First Responder I have to study the NIMS (National Incident Management System)… it seems so far to be a good system BUT vulnerable (like our govt) to corruption from within. Agencies/NGO’s etc are supposed to work together, and if they do their jobs then all is well… BUT if one agency (such as FEMA in the case of Katrina, Sandy etc) is corrupt, people suffer & the entire system loses credibility — as well it should. I’m not done studying it yet but so far I do not see a system of accountability within the NIMS. Maybe we the People will have to keep them all accountable. I did see this, which is encouraging:
    “A basic premise of both NIMS and the NRF is that incidents typically are managed at the local level first. Following NIMS doctrine, the NRF is designed to ensure that local jurisdictions retain command, control, and authority over response activities for their jurisdictional areas.” (source: http://training.fema.gov/EMIWeb/IS/IS700a/SM%20files/IS700A_StudentManual_L3.pdf ) So – call them on it ! Everything is supposed to be subject to LOCAL authorities/people/ agencies etc. FEMA is NOT supposed to ride into town & take over, the way they tried to do in Texas (hah!) with those fires a year or so ago. LOCALS are supposed to run things.

  14. Ayers and his ” life partner ” should have suffered a severe case of lead poisoning a long time ago . He must be an ” Untouchable ” ! Why ?

  15. Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this fascinating post. Sounds to me like a concentration camp-get rid of all of the other descriptions.

  17. Making these camps out to be great is exactly what the Nazi did before extermination of the Jews.

    A fema camp worker was recently fired at another camp after ‘asking too many questions’.
    He had asked what the slaughter assemblies were for since they weren’t using them on cattle or other animals. And why there were chains and bounds found in several lock down facilities currently not used.
    Who were they planning to detain?
    No answers, just fired later that day.
