New Guantanamo facility for expected post-Castro migrant wave

The US is building a new $18 million detention camp for Cubans, at the U.S. Navy base at Guantánamo Bay Cuba, sparked by concerns that many residents will attempt to migrate en masse to Florida after Fidel Castro dies. The project is described as a "facility to detain migrants." The "sprawling" new "terrorism detention and interrogation center" in which the detention camp will be located was constructed by KBR (Halliburton).

The new installation is needed because terrorism suspects occupy space on the base used in past emergencies to hold large numbers of migrants, Bush administration officials directly involved said. They note that the facilities are designed to house people from any Caribbean nation who attempt to enter illegally — not just Cubans
