Southwest Ranches ICE Jail Cancelled
On a day when President Obama announced that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) will take steps to stop deporting people who came to the U.S. illegally as children, there's more big news on immigration close to home.
ICE has reevaluated its need for an additional detention facility in South Florida and has decided that it will no longer pursue a facility in the Town of Southwest Ranches. We are examining our options for additional detention space in the region and will make the appropriate notifications when a decision about the way forward has been made.
