FEMA Trailers for Indian Country sign now

FEMA acquired mobile homes in 2005, for the Hurricane Katrina victims. As of June, 2006 20,000 brand new and unused mobile homes are sitting empty in a storage facility in Hope, Arkansas.

United States Senator Tim Johnson,(SD) wrote a letter to Pamela Turner, Assistant Secretary for Legislative and Intergovernmental Affairs Office with FEMA, suggesting the mobile homes be donated for housing and schools in Indian Country. There are thousands of Native American people that are either homeless or are living in substandard conditions on Reservations throughout Indian Country. The reservations in South Dakota have estimated up to 30\% of people are either homeless or living in substandard conditions. It is not uncommon for 20 or more residents to live in a three-bedroom, one bath home with three or four generations under one roof due to the lack of unavailable and safe housing.

FEMA's response to this request was, that these trailers would continue to be stored for disaster relief within several areas of the country.

FEMA has 20,000 available mobile homes sitting in storage, while there are thousands of homeless families living across the county. These homes were purchased with our tax dollars, the homeless people in this country should be a priority instead of letting them collect dust in a storage lot.

Please demand that our tax dollars stop being wasted by these agencies and the money actually be put to helping the people of this country!

    Even though we have large numbers of homeless in Florida also and FEMA is not giving up any of those trailers here either, we need to ALL STAND TOGETHER AS ONE and petition our legislative leaders to begin earning their monies and take care of we American
