U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials announced California’s Adelanto ICE Processing Center was forced to release 250 “criminal aliens” due to a federal court order. According to an ICE news release Tuesday, although the agency had requested the transfer of the now-freed detainees to other processing centers, ICE “has complied with the mandated reduction to the overall detainee population at the Adelanto ICE Processing Center in Adelanto, California, which has resulted in the release of dangerous criminal aliens into various communities.” ICE officials said they had concerns that communities surrounding the processing center could face “unnecessary victimization by recidivist criminals.”
