The White House is expected to employ private contractors to move hundreds of thousands of migrants across the U.S. while they await their asylum claims to be processed.
The Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency released a document detailing the plan earlier this week saying they are seeking “highly responsible” individuals for the job.
The document goes on to say those chosen need to treat all migrants with “dignity and respect” while they are transporting the migrants and their families.
Contractors are needed to transport 60,000 migrants each year and arrange travel plans including flight itineraries and ground transportation.
This comes as President Trump has unveiled his new immigration plan which will place emphasis on merit in an effort to combat chain migration.

His new plan will also favor highly skilled workers though it will not change the amount of green cards that are issued each year.
