Federal Government Puts Immigration Contract On Hold

Federal Government Puts Immigration Contract On Hold

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has put one of its immigration contracts on hold. One of the companies awarded a contract to house illegal immigrants in Greensboro, N.C., is now on "warm status," according to a letter sent by the company to its employees.

The announcement comes shortly after The Floridian reported that Deployed Resources and Deployed Services – companies owned by the same individual – received two government immigration contracts for likely the same work at the Greensboro influx center.

The change in status was first reported by Fox 8.

Deployed Services sent the following letter to their employees advising them their contract was on "warm status."


"Warm status" means the government is pulling back some funds and reducing operations and workforce.

The letter cites HHS' ongoing negotiations with yet another company for "facilities management" as a reason for the change.

As previously reported, Deployed Services, Deployed Resources, and The American Hebrew Academy have received contracts with the Federal Government for the influx facility. Each entity seems to have some aspect of "facility management" in its respective roles.

According to local witnesses, BluSky Restoration Contractors' trucks have been spotted on the property. Roofers were also seen making repairs.

The Floridian reached out to BluSky for additional information but has not yet heard back from them for comment.

The Floridian requested further information regarding the project and a breakdown of the roles and responsibilities of each contracted business to HHS. However, HHS only sent us a fact sheet with the limited information already made public. HHS advised that we must submit any additional requests for information via a FOIA request. The Floridian has submitted a FOIA request to HHS for further details, and the department has 20 working days to respond.

Another concern is that The American Hebrew Academy is zoned as a "Private School" but will be used as a migrant influx facility. Guilford County property tax records show that the American Hebrew Academy is a 100-acre property with land classified as "Institutional." The zoning description reflects it is to be used as a private school.

While the influx facility will provide educational instruction, whether temporarily housing illegal migrant children constitutes a "private school" is unknown.

The Floridian contacted the Guilford County Zoning and Planning Office for comment or explanation but could not immediately reach anyone for comment.

The project has caused local and nationwide controversy as the Biden Administration continues what many see as a weak response to illegal immigration at the Southern Border.
