Secrecy in Illinois
Quick link here to a brief editorial from the Southtown Star in Illinois, questioning a planned immigration detention center and the lack of publicly-available information about it. Apparently, ICE and CCA have already worked out a tentative approval of the 750-bed facility's construction, but there has been no public hearing about the matter. In fact, the mayor of Crete, the town in which the prison would be built, only agreed to the hearing after a bunch of his constituents voiced concern over the lack of information.
