NORCOR To Consider Future With ICE In July

The board of the Northern Oregon Regional Corrections Facility will discuss its future relationship with Immigration and Customs Enforcement at a worksession in July.  That after hearing from members of the public concerned about how ICE detainees are treated when the federal agency contracts with NORCOR for bed space.  Hood River County Commission Chair and NORCOR board member Ron Rivers says the panel learned during from that comment the jail in The Dalles does not have the same resources the ICE facility in Tacoma has, and he believes that is a problem.  Some of the differences include the amount of time clergy is allowed in the facility, visitation capabilities, and lack of an immigration library at NORCOR.  The NORCOR board will discuss the subject at a July 20 worksession, when they will also discuss whether to go out for another operations levy after their initial attempt failed in May.  Rivers noted ICE only had five or less detainees a day at NORCOR in the past month, but the number has been larger at times.
