What a thoughtless & disdain plan! This is not surprising coming from a Mississippi Coast politician who did nothing to protect his constituents from the hidden dangers of formaldehyde in FEMA funded housing. The plan echoes right winged views on controlling diversity. The British gave smallpox blankets to native Americans, FEMA leased toxic trailers to Gulf Coast hurricane survivors, FEMA even gave toxic trailers to native Americans. Is Senator Is Hewes’ plan to provide toxic housing to Haitians a Humanitarian Act? I don’t think so, the plan would be very profitable to the Port, some Mississippi politicians and some cronies; but would be very unhealthy for the Haitian disaster survivors. People always suffer in profit over people schemes . The GSA has halted FEMA housing auction sales due to the potential of health related issues within these units. The Government and the formaldehyde industry have long (over twenty 20 years) been aware of dangers of formaldehyde hidden in building products. The industry has managed to keep the public/media ignorant by simply keeping the law makers happy. In 2005, hurricane survivors discovered that hundreds of thousands occupants of FEMA trailers and/or mobile homes were being exposed and/or suffering from dangerous levels of formaldehyde. FEMA knew the occupants were suffering but ignored the issue as they feared ownership of the problem. In April 2007, a CDC whistle blower’s action forced FEMA/CDC to disclose that fact that FEMA housing was not safe. This sparked thousands of law suits against FEMA, the trailer manufacturers and the contractors who handled the toxic trailers. It is the general opinion that majority of long term occupants of FEMA trailers were the poor, sick, injured and/or Democrats or non-voters. Mississippi has over 5000 litigants who claim to have been injured from exposure to FEMA trailers. Another Louisiana native, Senator David Vitter aka; David Duke Vitter; Diaper Dave; The Formaldehyde Senator, is leading the charge to aid the Formaldehyde Council to block the EPA effort to finally establish formaldehyde regulations to protect the public. Formaldehyde politics could even be making it difficult for FEMA toxic trailers victims to get fair day in court. Any negative verdicts for defendants could be very costly for Senator’s cronies and campaign donors, as well as, the Formaldehyde council. Some will do almost anything to protect that interest. By some less than Devine means, the Fate of the Toxic FEMA trailer litigants is in the hands of Vitter’s very, very best friend and former campaign finance manager; the presiding judge.

If it is safe to sell FEMA trailers to American citizens then it should be a great idea to send the trailers to Haiti to help provide a roof over the heads of so many who find themselves homeless at this time.
