“JOLIET — An immigration detention center would have a “very positive impact” in Joliet, Joliet’s city manager said Thursday. But one immigrant rights group already is mounting opposition to the idea, which government officials have been trying to keep out of public view. City Manager Thomas Thanas acknowledged there is an “exploratory project” to put a detention center for immigrants facing deportation in Joliet. A plan to locate the same kind of facility in Crete was turned down in June amid public opposition. The city, however, has kept the controversial project away from public view. Thanas said there has not been a commitment from either the city or federal officials to try to bring the detention center to Joliet.”

Now if I was project planner, I would construct the detention facility here in this open land area?

“In 1993, the 23,500 acre Joliet Army Ammunition Plant 40 miles southwest of Chicago was declared excess federal land.  The Joliet Army Training Area remains Army property and is still used for Army National Guard training.”

Perfect location too, away from public view.

Plus, it is right next to the new 111mph high speed rail, where it becomes much more efficient to transport immigrants too and from the location.

According to this web site the old Joliet prison will be demolished and then reconstructed into a new community.

So I don’t see them refurbishing the old Joliet Prison Facility. Then again, what do I know?  This is just my opinion.
