The FEMA camps started during the Reagan presidency, under an initiative called REX 84. Louis Giufridda was head of FEMA and set them up, with the idea of detaining pro-Sandanista supporters in the U.S. The camps were nearly brought to light during the Iran/CONRA hearings when Senator Jack Brooks asked about 'continuity of government;' and 'suspending the Constitution' but Senator Dan Inouye stopped the questioning cold.
It may well come to FEMA camps if millions are out of work, have no income and need someplace warm to live. What will happen after that is anybody's guess.
Doesn't look good.
