The problem here is that this kind of muddies the waters. Trump actually wants to build a whole lot of internment camps - his desire to build “detention centers” that would hold millions of people was explicitly spelled out in one of his executive orders about rounding up immigrants. Whether they’ll get the funding to do so is uncertainly, but the intent is certainly there.

When I first saw this, I thought they were a threat, like those billboards about voter fraud that were put in poor democratic-leaning neighborhoods.

How about “Future secessionist capital”?

Do you put internment camps in the middle of a big city though? I can imagine this campaign having more impact if the signs go up on rural fences along occasionally traveled routes - hiking trails etc.

When I first saw the headline I thought this was about Obama’s FEMA internment camps right-wing loonies went on about.
