FEMA Won't Let Camp Residents Communicate With Media
FEMA camps, staffed by private security, are preventing residents who survived Hurricane Katrina from speaking with the media about camp conditions.
Dekotha Devall, whose New Orleans home was destroyed by the storm, was in her FEMA-provided trailer telling [a] reporter of the hardships of life in the camp when a security guard knocked on the door.
FEMA residents are, however, allowed to talk to ministers.
FEMA's restrictions have been denounced by the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press as illegal and unconstitutional.
