Contra Costa sheriff to announce end of ICE contract, sources say
By Aaron David

In early June, the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors voted not to renew a five-year-old contract with ICE that housed detainees at the Rio Cosumnes Correctional Center in Elk Grove. Three supervisors went against the sheriff’s recommendations and voted against renewing the agreement, citing ethical grounds and the political climate. If the Richmond facility becomes off limits for undocumented immigrants, the closest detention facility would be the Yuba County Jail in Marysville. According to Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearing House, 960 immigrants were detained at the Richmond jail between October 2014 and September 2015. Of those, 40 percent left the facility, mainly through posting a bond, and 60 percent were transferred to another facility.
