El Paso, Texas (CBS HOUSTON) The Department of Homeland Security is looking to fulfill an order for thousands of pairs of mens underwear with hundreds of the requested mens briefs in the 5X and 6X-large sizes.
A solicitation posted earlier this month by the Immigration & Customs Enforcement office seeks thousands of White 100% Cotton Mens Briefs ranging from mediums to hundreds of 6X-large pairs of the underwear.
ICE facilities have seen a recent influx of detained immigrants awaiting deportation, during which time, the detention facilities require such basic items for the detained aliens, Breitbart reported. The ICE orders for the underwear are not unusual for the immigration detention facilities, according to ICE officials.
This [request for quote] is a normal solicitation for routinely procured items needed at ICE-owned detention facilities around the country, an ICE spokesperson explained to Breitbart News on Monday. At ICE-owned detention facilities, the agency is required to provide basic necessities in order to feed and clothe detained aliens.
The solicitation placed through Federal Business Opportunities cites that the large order and large underwear are bound for El Paso, Texas.
But such clothing orders may likely be needed in similar alien detention facilities across the southwestern U.S.
Earlier this month, more than 1,000 unaccompanied Central American children crowded into a Border Patrol facility in Nogales, Ariz. The flood of Central American minors has increased dramatically since last year, sparking what President Barack Obama called an urgent humanitarian situation near southwestern U.S. borders.
According to Green Valley News, the children are given medical exams, background checks, food, clothing and showers in the period before they are deported. However, a Border Patrol spokesman said that the agency is not accepting clothing or toy donations because there is not enough staff to inspect the items for cleanliness or safety.
State Sen. Andrea Dalessandro, D-Sahuarita, said there is not enough space in the crowded holding facilities to handle donations of clothing.
DHS data on arrested unaccompanied minors shows that since Oct. 1, there have been 11,577 from Mexico, 13,282 from Honduras and 11,479 from Guatemala. There have been 9,850 from Salvador.

5X and 6X?...................................Are we getting illegal Sumo Wrestlers rolling across the border?...............
“for the chillrun”
Sounds like an opportunity for the Clintons to get more tax deductions for their used skivvies.
That was MY thought
don’t bother , not one minute , turn them all around and send them back across .
and while they are at it , blow all the north bound rail bridges within 200 miles of our border .
Well, I certainly hope they're all getting a mani and pedi. And a mint on their pillows.
For the love of Pete! Hand them a baloney sandwich and a bottle of water and boot them back!
We're allowing in guys that have FIVE FOOT WAISTS ?????
I’m thinking that there is more to the story that the mediots are not telling.
This must be Mariel Boatlift Version 2.0
Could the nations south of the border be emptying their hospitals and insane asylums just as Castro did on Jimmah Cahtah?
Could they be divesting themselves of morbidly obese people to get rid of their problems?
Could they be clearing out their prisons?.....................
Sounds like the Japanese Olympic Sumo Wrestling team................
I told my wife that from all the pictures they sure look well dressed and very well fed for being “refugees”.
Get enough of those 5X and 6X guys on the rail bridges and they will collapse on their own..................
Gee I thought it was just children rushing the border.
They must be morbidly obese children.......................
5X men briefs size measures 58-60 inches
Those are some really big children!
Why,Obama invited them in,back in January on the governments
procurement website they were requesting bids from vendors to transport a large number of immigrant minors to camps throughout the US. Diseases and all
DHS could sell or trade some ammo for undies.
Otherwise they can effoff.
If you shoot them you don’t have to dress them.
