    As part of an initiative (known as the Criminal Alien Requirement),

of approximately 1,000 low-security adult male inmates that are 
primarily criminal aliens. The BOP is seeking to reduce prison 
overcrowding by requesting additional contract beds for low-security 
male criminal aliens.
    In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 
1969, the Council of Environmental Quality Regulations (40 CFR parts 
1500-1508), and the Department of Justice procedures for implementing

proposed action of contracting with one private contractor to house 
approximately 1,000 Federal, low-security, adult male, non-U.S. 
citizen, criminal aliens at a contractor-owned, contractor-operated 
correctional facility.
    The BOP's EA evaluates the potential environmental consequences of 
five action alternatives and the No Action Alternative. Natural, 
cultural, and socioeconomic resource impacts associated with the 
implementation of the proposed action at each of the proposed 
alternative locations were analyzed to determine how these resources

Adjustment Center, Beattyville, Kentucky; Limestone County Detention 
Center, Groesbeck, Texas; Jackson Parish Correctional Center, 
Jonesboro, Louisiana; Pine Prairie Correctional Center, Pine Prairie, 
Louisiana; or the Jack Harwell Detention Facility, Waco, Texas. Inmates 
housed in these facilities would be aliens from any number of countries 
who have committed crimes within the U.S. and are being held for trial, 
or who have been convicted and sentenced to serve time within the 
Federal prison system. Upon completion of their sentences, these 
inmates would be deported to their country of origin.
