With the new Musick Facility in Irvine and Other New Detention Facilities, Orange County’s Detained Immigrant Population Is Expected To Grow
Immigration officials will soon have 1,300 additional beds to house detained aliens in Southern California who are suspected of being in the country illegally, according to news reports.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (“ICE”) officials announced an agreement to set up a detention center in Adelanto to create more bed space, The Associated Press reported. Adelanto is northeast of Orange County.
The latest move is part of an effort by immigration authorities to create more detention space in a region where there is a high demand for detention space.
Last year, immigration officials reached an agreement with Orange County to house about 830 immigration detainees at the Theo Lacy Facility in Orange and James A. Musick Facility near Irvine.
The agreement made Orange County a vital partner in providing detention space for ICE detainees, officials said. Santa Ana has contracted with ICE, providing 200 beds annually since 2006.
