Jerome hopes to contract with feds to hold immigration detainees; few Idaho jails do
By Nathan Brown

Statewide, there are only two facilities the Elmore County Jail in Mountain Home and the Jefferson County Jail in Rigby that hold ICE prisoners for more than a couple of days, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University in New York. The Elmore County Jail housed 180 ICE inmates in the most recent reporting period, from October 2014 to September 2015, the university reported. The average stay was eight days before prisoners were moved to another facility. The Rigby jail housed 81 inmates over that same period, with an average stay of six days. Jails in Ada and Canyon counties and the Mini-Cassia jail in Burley provide short-term housing less than two days for inmates arrested on other charges whom ICE takes custody of after those cases resolve or an inmate puts up a bond.
