Now comes a solicitation from the Trump Administration for contractors to bid on other "soft sided structures." The solicitation 70B03C19Q0000074 was originally posted on April 12th and amended on the 15th. Bids are due on the 16th because Attorney General William Barr has just banned bail for migrants seeking asylum...which by the way, is not a crime..and they need somewhere to keep these people, to concentrate them if you will.
