Rockford Mayor Not Sure About ICE Wing In Local Jail

(Rockford, IL)  —  The mayor of Rockford is the latest question whether Winnebago County should add an immigration wing to its jail. County Sheriff  Gary Caruana is talking with federal officials about renting beds in the jail to Immigration and Customs. But Mayor Tom McNamara yesterday told a crowd that Rockford is a ‘welcoming community’ and said the immigration detention wing may ‘impede’ efforts to be more welcoming.
