What do supporters of illegals think about Native Americans detaining and running detention centers?
Many on here try to claim American Indians are on the side of illegal aliens. Does this prove them wrong? Is this great when American Indians are willing to do their part and helping our economy with jobs for these American Indians? What is your opinion? XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX Native American Firms Profit from Detaining Immigrants Tom Barry | January 21, 2010 Americas Program, Center for International Policy (CIP) americas.irc-online.org Immigrant detention means business. Several Native American firms are profiting from the immigrant crackdown against hopeful new Americans. Not only are the major private prison corporations seeing their profits soar from the surge in immigrant inmates, Native American corporations, as the favored recipients of Department of Homeland Security (DHS) contracts, are also cashing in on the growing opportunities to make money by detaining and imprisoning immigrants. Doyon Ltd. is one of several Native American corporations that are sealing major contracts with the Department of Homeland Security. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has contracted the operations, transportation, and food services of the 800-bed El Paso Service Processing Center to the private holding group Doyon. Doyon is one of twelve original Alaskan Native Regional Corporations created as part of the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act of 1971. Other firms of the Alaska Native Corporations (ANCs) are also seeking contracts to run detention centers. A few of these Native American corporations are contracting for various parts of ICE's immigrant detention operations. Contract awards to ANCs by all federal agencies increased by 916% from 2000-2008, rising from $508.4 million in 2000 to $5.2 billion in 2008. The first volume of a two-part report recently prepared for the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs for Senator Claire McCaskill found that ANC federal contracts have been increasing at a 33.6% annual rate since 2000—six times greater than the overall increase in federal contract spending. Native Corporations as National Security Corporations Native American corporations, particularly an array of Alaska Native Corporations, have become major defense and homeland security contractors – responsible for a wide range of national security operations, including electronic surveillance on the border, running immigrant detention centers, and supplying security and other services in U.S. overseas wars and energy exploitation. Ahtna Inc., one of the thirteen Alaska Native Corporations (ANCs) established in 1971 through the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act, received an infusion of federal funds in compensation for common lands lost to government and the private sector. http://americas.irc-online.org/am/6662

What most illegal alien advocates who use the argument that the U.S, took the southwest from Mexico, and contend that the land is rightfully theirs, seem to forget is that prior to 1846 the Apache, and several other southwest tribes were warring against the Mexican people to drive them off the lands that they took from...

One article doesn't say much for the entire group of Native Americans in the entire country dear. If you com to Phoenix, you would see the Navajo Nation walking side-by-side with us during our immigration reform and anti-Apraio rallies. I invite you!

If they'd round up the couple of hundred million descendants of European i****************s, then we'd really be able to make some improvements.

It sounds like someone did a legitimate business deal, while the writer of the article is a bit bigoted & twisted it to a bashing of Native Americans. I wouldn't take a single statement in there as "fact." Also, Native Americans are enough people to have *individual* views on anything political & a right to have them... More
