U.S, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced last week that it would start using more than 1,600 federal prison beds to detain immigrants.  The plan is to sen most of the immigrant detainees to Victorville, in San Bernardino County.  KPCC reporter Libby Denkmann was outside the prison where the first wave of detainees arrived on Friday.
