DHS Secretary Mayorkas Closing Two ICE Facilities Holding Criminal Illegal Aliens

By John Binder | Breitbart

Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas announced that he is ordering the closure of two Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facilities that hold criminal illegal aliens.

On Thursday, Mayorkas said he is directing ICE to end its use of the C. Carlos Carreiro Immigration Detention Center in North Dartmouth, Massachusetts, and the Irwin County Detention Center in Ocilla, Georgia, requesting agents transfer criminal illegal aliens out of the facilities.

As part of the closing of both ICE facilities, Mayorkas is directing ICE to terminate its Intergovernmental Services Agreement and its 287(g) agreement with the Bristol County, Massachusetts Sheriff’s Office — both programs which help streamline the process of local police cooperating with the agency to arrest and deport illegal aliens.
