When I watched a YouTube video called "SERCO — the biggest company nobody has heard of" I thought the company name was fictitious in order to make a good spoof. Upon further research I discovered that the scary but somewhat humorous ending was more truth than fiction regarding SERCO's global influence. Upon further research I discovered that the video is very factual and probably not as alarmist as it should be.

It appears that the British have tapped into a huge new business — exporting prison services, and running government agencies in countries over the entire world. The British owned company runs all seven of the immigration detention centers in Australia and most of them in the UK. In Canada SERCO has a variety of government contracts — they even control driver's licenses and collect parking meter fees. SERCO runs prisons all over the world including in the U.S. Large segments of our immigration system are outsourced to SERCO as well as important pieces of national security.

SERCO could be the closest thing we have to a one-world entity that runs governments. In the United States and Britain, just about the entire governments of both countries have been outsourced to SERCO. You think I'm exaggerating, right?

The following is a partial list of U.S. government agencies that outsource work to SERCO. The first part of the list is emphasized because they raise big red flags in regards to immigration. Read about their U.S. government contracts at the SERCO website here and here:
