This bill prohibits the Northern Oregon Regional Correctional Facility from contracting with Federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement, by appropriating $1.64 million this biennium to make up for the loss of revenue.
Appropriates $1.64 million this biennium to make up for the loss of revenue – paying counties to not house prisoners. Not cooperating or coordinating with ICE only means prisoners will be transported out of state and taxpayers will make up for the lost funds.
A judge has already ruled that this arrangement does not violate the state sanctuary law.
The state is interfering with a county contract.
