The federal government is looking for contractors to build a possible detention center in the Los Angeles area that would hold up to 2,200 illegal immigrants and others suspected of violating immigration laws.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman Virginia Kice said last week that the agency was “exploring the feasibility of such a project,” though she said no definitive decisions had been made. (LA Times)
