"The Homestead "temporary influx facility" is the largest shelter for migrant children in the country. Homestead is the only such facility run by a for-profit corporation. It is also the only one that receives no oversight from state regulators."
"The operator is Comprehensive Health Services. The FL-based company dispatched medical teams to the Gulf Coast after Hurricane Katrina, to Haiti after the earthquake, & to Balad Air Base in Iraq. And in 2016, it entered the migrant shelter business." n.pr/2RUd2y4
"The current Homestead contract with the Department of Health and Human Services is worth up to $220 million."

Well holy shit. The typo in Victor Esposito's bio should say XE ServiceS (formerly Erik Prince's Blackwater), not Service.
Here's a 2017 Military.com article about allegations of Sallyport Global's involvement with sex trafficking while Esposito was President and CEO. It identifies Esposito as a former Blackwater Worldwide employee who later became COO of XE.

Excerpts of the allegations and info on Esposito. Who gave these people the $220M HHS contract to operate a for-profit child prison in Homestead FL?

"U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Unaccompanied Alien Children sheltered at Homestead Job Corps Site, Homestead, Florida" hhs.gov/sites/default/…

More evidence ZT policy was taking place prior to Sessions announcement. Homestead reactivated Feb 2018
"Family separations that resulted from the Zero Tolerance Policy that ended in 2018 are not driving the continuing operation of Homestead." What about the separations that took place after Executive Order 13841 & are still going on now? The policy was not ended by that EO.
Zero Tolerance policy enforcement by DHS had been going on for a year before Sessions "announcement." Sessions was issuing DOJ guidance for prosecutors & judges to ALSO start enforcing ZT & giving them quotas to treat "unlawful entry" as criminal rather than a civil offense.
This Justification & Approval (posted 2/22/2019) by DHS to increase the contract ceiling for MVM Inc's transportation of kids & families clearly states that DHS implemented enforcement guidance on Feb 20 2017 in response to EO 13768 (issued Jan 2017)
fbo.gov/notices/1b70be…
"Since opening in March 2018 over 6,300 UAC have been placed at the site and more than 4,850 have been discharged to a suitable sponsor."
What happened to the other 1450 kids? How many children from Tornillo were not released to sponsors & if not @ Homestead, where did they go?
If HHS takes great care in assigning each child to an appropriate facility, why is that function being outsourced to general dynamics via a $64M contract? Care & services are outsourced to defense contractors & their subcontractors + mercenaries - because child welfare.
Since Homestead is on federal property, not subject to state regs or licensing restrictions, but is still subject to federal regulations, have all staff there undergone CA/N bg checks along w/fingerprint check, since both checks were insufficient at Tornillo, according to HHSOIG?
Ugly.
Published one moth before this👆HHS Press Release
Who facilitates legal services & lawyers for the children? ORR, DOJ or a contractor? So, all kids in HHS/ORR custody do not have access to an attorney for at least 7-10 days? Is a legal screening the same thing as access to a lawyer? What's the lawyer to child ratio?
What if a child does not speak English or Spanish? How can they be properly assessed for academic placement? Are translators or staff who speak languages other than English/Spanish on site at all? If no, & kids speak a different language, how can any needs be assessed?
Do teachers @ Homestead not fall under federal regulations as staff who are supposed to be subject to bot CA?N & FBI background checks? What percentage of teachers are bilingual/multilingual? What is the teacher to child ratio? The always walk in single file kind of structure?
What is the clinician to child ratio at Homestead? Is it better or worse than it was at Tornillo? Who hires the clinicians, HHS or the contractor overseeing ORR's case management program? Comprehensive Health Services is a security contractor? Their parent company is, but ...
Why are local & national media reporting that CHSi operates Homestead? Do they have it wrong? Or does HHS have it wrong because they outsource their entire ORR/Child Welfare program to military contractors?

Says as of 3/30/19 there were 2000 kids @ Homestead & they're upping capacity from 2,350 to 3,200. Still says "no separated kids" & "no kids from Tornillo" but have yet to answer where all those kids went.
