|Footage of a FEMA concentration camp in the USA as described in Rex 84.|
Rex 84 (short for Readiness Exercise 1984), was a plan by the United States federal government to test their ability to detain large numbers of American citizens in case of massive civil unrest or national emergency (such as government sponsored acts of terrorism e.g 9/11 2001 !).
From 1967 to 1971 the FBI kept a list of persons to be rounded up as subversive, dubbed the "ADEX" list. They more than likely still do.

portions affected by this rapid action revision are listed in the
summary of change.
This regulation provides guidance for establishing and managing
civilian inmate labor programs on Army installations. It provides
guidance on establishing prison camps on Army installations . It
addresses record keeping and reporting incidents related to the
Civilian Inmate Labor Program and/or prison camp administration.

Guard of the United States, and the U.S. Army Reserve unless otherwise
stated. During mobilization, the Assistant Chief of Staff for
Installation Management may modify chapters and policies contained in
1–5. Civilian inmate labor programs
a. Civilian inmate labor programs benefit both the Army and
corrections systems by—
(1) Providing a source of labor at no direct labor cost to Army
installations to accomplish tasks that would not be possible
otherwise due to the manning and funding constraints under which
the Army operates.
(2) Providing meaningful work for inmates and, in some cases,
additional space to alleviate overcrowding in nearby corrections
(3) Making cost–effective use of buildings and land not
otherwise being used.
b. Except for the 3 exceptions listed in paragraph 2–1d below,
installation civilian inmate labor programs may use civilian
inmate labor only from Federal corrections facilities located
either off or on the installation.
c. Keys to operating an effective civilian inmate labor program
on Army installations include—
(1) Establishing a comprehensive lease agreement, interservice,
interagency, and/or interdepartmental support agreement (ISA),
and/or memoranda of agreement with the corrections facility.
(2) Developing a cooperative working relationship between
installation personnel and corrections facility personnel.
(3) Working closely with installation government employee labor
unions to ensure union leaders understand the program and have
current information on program status.
(4) Training all installation personnel involved in the
operation or administration of the program frequently.
(5) Developing a public affairs plan informing the installation
and the surrounding local community of the program and work
projects assigned to civilian inmate labor.
