POLITICS | Citizens in Support of ICE to Testify at Public Hearing Feb 19th

Immigration Customs and Enforcement, ICE, at the Adeelanto detention center signed a 15 year contract with  the private correctional GEO Group before AB 32 took effect in January. Now, the Adelanto ICE Detention Center has filed for a permit to expand the facility. A  public hearing will be held on February 19th at the Adelanto Planning Commission meeting.

Citizens in support of ICE will be speaking during the public hearing.

“Groups in support of the Adelanto ICE facility and in favor of  issuing a permit to expand the detention center will testify at the planning commission hearing,” Robin Hvidston, Executive Director of We The People Rising and CA State Coordinator for The Remembrance Project, said.  “This is an issue of public safety, and in support of federal law enforcement We The People Rising, The Remembrance Project, America First Latinos and Concerned Citizens of California will call upon the planning commission to issue the permit to expand the detention center.”

The Adelanto ICE Detnetion Center GEO Group  asked that Desert View Modified Community Correctional Facility be allowed to house detainees who are in the custody of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The facility, if approved, would add 750 beds for immigration detainees. That’s in addition to the 1,940 beds inside GEO’s  Adelanto ICE Processing Center.

“Our citizen organizations will be speaking out in support of law enforcement, calling on the planning commission to vote in favor of issuing the permit to expand the facility,” Hvidston said. “It is a matter of public safety.”
