DHS Looks to Buy Men's Underwear, Some of it Very Big

The Department of Homeland Security is looking to purchase a lot of men’s underwear.

An Immigration and Customs Enforcement solicitation posted this month at Federal Business Opportunities seeks to fulfill an order for hundreds of pairs of men’s briefs from size medium to 6X-large.

The DHS Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) requires the following items, Purchase Description Determined by Line Item, to the following: 

LI 001: White 100% Cotton Men's Briefs Size: Medium Per Dozen, 600, DZ; 

LI 002: White 100% Cotton Men's Briefs Size: Large Per Dozen, 600, DZ; 

LI 003: White 100% Cotton Men's Briefs Size: X-Large Per Dozen, 600, DZ; 

LI 004: White 100% Cotton Men's Briefs Size: 2X-Large Per Dozen, 400, DZ; 

LI 005: White 100% Cotton Men's Briefs Size: 3X-Large Per Dozen, 400, DZ; 

LI 006: White 100% Cotton Men's Briefs Size: 4X-Large Per Dozen, 400, DZ; 

LI 007: White 100% Cotton Men's Briefs Size: 5X-Large Per Dozen, 300, DZ; 

LI 008: White 100% Cotton Men's Briefs Size: 6X-Large Per Dozen, 200, DZ; 

While the bulk request for undies by a law enforcement agency appears odd and has been making the rounds in the blogosphere, according to ICE such orders are not unusual for ICE-owned detention facilities. 

"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 Monday. “At ICE-owned detention facilities, the agency is required to provide basic necessities in order to feed and clothe detained aliens.”

According to ICE, facilities the agency owns must obtain basic necessities for the detained immigrants they house, purchasing such things via line-item. Facilities ICE contracts with to house detained immigrants, on the other hand, roll all the costs for basic necessities into the overall bed-day rate contractors charge ICE.

Many of ICE’s detention facilities are owned by contractors.

The ad notes that these pairs of underwear are destined for El Paso, Texas.
