In a prior posting, I discussed Halliburton contracts and the perennial problem of overcharges and government waivers granted. In that light, readers may be interested in Halliburton's posting about a new contract awarded by the federal government. See this link. Halliburton will be building facilities that may be used for "immigration emergencies" or other emergency detention needs. Is anyone as worried as I am that those detention facilities 1) may be used for more detainees who will receive no due process and 2) will be built with cost overruns that make the contract particularly lucrative to Halliburton?
