3/30 Phoenix, CA: ICE Opens Office In Phoenix Prison
Released 31 March 2007  By Associated Press

ICE Opens Office In Phoenix Prison

March 30, 2007
Associated Press

PHOENIX -- The federal agency that deports illegal immigrants is scheduled
to open its first office inside a prison Friday in an effort to expedite the
deportation process.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement is opening a trailer inside the Arizona
State Prison Complex in Phoenix.

Staffing the trailer will be six Arizona Department of Corrections employees
who have been trained as immigration officers, two actual immigration
officers and a supervisor from Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The Arizona Department of Corrections said the trailer will be the
immigration agency's first location inside a prison.

The move is the latest manifestation of a 2005 agreement between the
Department of Corrections and Immigration and Customs Enforcement to quicken
the deportation process.

Since then, 17 corrections workers have been trained and certified as
immigration agents.
