Last week, Orange County officials announced that they will house immigration detainees in two jails in the county. This new deal will help bring jobs to public safety officials and bring in millions of dollars in revenue.
The jails will hold up to 800 detainees, one of the jails is in Orange and one near Irvine. The Sheriffs Department has been negotiating this deal with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for months to decide where and how the jails will be run.
Both jails will need to undergo some renovations in order to have more office space and courtrooms. Officials say that an influx of detainees may be seen in August, but it should be steady after that.
