Refugee camp to be built at Guantanamo

According to this article , originally written for the Miami Herald, the US government is anticipating a huge wave of refugees seeking entry into the United States when Fidel Castro dies.   I don’t get that—why there would be a human flood when that happens, but apparently work is underway to build an infrastructure to house tens of thousands of refugees down the road a piece from the present detention center.

Marine Capt. Manuel Carpio, the officer assigned to plan for the crisis and coordinate with various American and international agencies, said Wednesday that the U.S. government was seeking bids for an estimated $40 million project that would expand the infrastructure to accommodate 35,000 people in a portion of the base called Leeward North.
