ICE Eying Dwight

ICE Eying Dwight

An immigration detention center could become a reality on 88 acres of land just outside Dwight near I-55 and Rt. 17.  The Bloomington Pantagraph reports the ICE run facility would house 1200 men awaiting court hearings. The plan would not incorporate the use of the now shuttered Dwight Correctional Center.  It’s estimated the 20 million dollar facility would create about 280 jobs.  It is far from a done deal, the newspaper reports several locations are being considered.
