Gov. J.B. Pritzker

Pritzker could ban Dwight prison plan 

Pritzker podría prohibir el plan de la prisión de Dwight

CHICAGO — Gov. J.B. Pritzker is to consider a measure the state Legislature has approved that would ban privatized immigration detention centers in Illinois.

The Chicago Tribune reports the state Senate last week approved the measure, which the Illinois House passed in April.

The legislation is in response to a vote by community leaders that approved a plan for a privately run immigration detention center in the village of Dwight, which is located 30 miles west of Kankakee in Livingston County.

Pritzker representatives didn’t say if he planned to sign or veto the bill.
