CRETE, Ill.— A debate about Immigration reform is taking shape in a small suburban Chicago community where local and federal officials are considering placing an immigrant detention center.

The proposed facility in Crete — around 35 miles south of Chicago — is among several locations U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials have chosen nationwide. ICE currently rents space from a county jail in the Chicago area to house immigrants facing deportation proceedings.

If the proposal is solidified, Crete officials would hire a private company to build and manage the facility with up to 700 beds, Crete Mayor Michael Einhorn told the Chicago Tribune ( ) for a story published Monday.
