Jaclyn LaMar started this petition to Northern Oregon Regional Corrections Facility

The Northern Oregon Regional Correctional Facility (NORCOR) Board voted unanimously to end both adult and juvenile Federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) contracts on Aug 20, 2020. We, community members of Oregon’s Wasco, Hood River, Sherman and Gilliam counties, ask the NORCOR Board to ensure the community there will be no further collaboration or future contracts with ICE for the safety of our communities. We are demanding the NORCOR Board pledge in writing that NORCOR will not hold anyone for ICE under any circumstances. 


There is community concern regarding the possibility of NORCOR allowing ICE holds to continue under the guise of the Federal Housing US Marshals contract. The Federal Housing US Marshals revenue budget increased from $18,000 19-20 FY to $891,500 a20-21 FY.

We do not know why this revenue line increased and this is cause for concern. Institutions both public and private are known for efforts that on the surface appear to institute real change but at the heart of the matter do not provide the fundamental change that is necessary. 


Due to NORCOR’s long history of cooperation with ICE and their continued revenue stream through the US Marshal’s contract, we demand a formal statement pledging that NORCOR will refuse to hold immigrants for ICE permanently and no further contracts can be held. 


Please sign this petition if you support this request of the NORCOR board. We will present this petition at the next NORCOR board meeting on 9/17 @ 9AM.
