Proposed immigration jail divides Chicago suburb

"A small south suburb has quietly been working with federal officials on a plan to build an immigration lockup of up to 700 beds, placing the semirural town in the middle of a national debate.  Some Crete residents, angered by what they call a lack of transparency, have been organizing since word of the proposed detention center leaked late last year. Yard signs scattered throughout the town — with a slash through the words "Crete detention center" — signal the feelings of many." - Chicago Tribune, Jan. 23, 2012.
