SACRAMENTO COUNTY (CBS13) — Undocumented immigrants will no longer be housed in Sacramento County.
In a narrow vote Tuesday night, the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors canceled a contract with the Department of Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement to detain immigrants inside a correctional facility as they await deportation.
The article goes on to state the following:
The contract provided millions of federal dollars to the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department each year.
In a 3-2 vote, supervisors chose not to renew the county’s contract with ICE, that since 2013, has housed federal detainees inside the Rio Cosumnes Correctional Center just outside Elk Grove.
Supervisors Phil Serna, Patrick Kennedy, and Don Nottoli voted in favor of the motion.
“Our budgets are reflective of our values,” said Serna.
