A second Mississippi prison is now holding undocumented immigrants for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, an official confirmed Wednesday.
Adams County Correctional Center is housing undocumented immigrants, ICE spokesperson Bryan Cox said Wednesday, adding that it is a “direct result” of the “situation at the Southwest border.”
The move occurred in late June, he said. An exact date was not immediately available. Cox could not immediately say how many people were being held at the federal facility near Natchez.
