Dear Mr . b6.b7c

I want to personally thank you for considering the Lee C oun ty She riff's O ffice to
partner w ith the Fede ral Government on Immigra tion is sues and concerns b y
providing training to our C orrectional Deputies.

A year or so a go, we were in line to d edicate seve ral Correctio n De puties to


participate in the 28 7 (g) trainin g and initia tive set forth by Ho meland Security
to id entify illegal alie ns entering into our correctional facilitie s. Due to recent
state t ax cuts and local budget restraints, the County has a s ked u s , along w ith
the other governme ntal entitie s , to s ignificantly c ut and dow nsize existing
budgets a nd to streamline pers onnel func tio ns w ithin the operatio ns of o ur
divisions .

With this in mind, we re gretfully will not b e able to d ed icate personnel to


attend trainin g for the 4- week period a nd then to allocate them to perfo rm
functions not viable to the everyday s ecuri ty and supervision of the current
inmate population o f the facilitie s, w hich at the present time is running 7 00
over bed c apacity.

Fortunately, Lee County is unique in that next to the d owntown Maximum


Security Jail , IC E operates their local office that Lee County C orrections
Pe rsonne l w ork diligently with to identifyin g daily, those individuals arre s ted
that are forei gn born. I will as s ure you that we w ill make every effort to
continue our c urrent collaborative effo rts with the local ICE authoritie s to
ide ntify, detain and ultimately deport those persons of interes t to the Federal
Government.

Sincerely ,

She riff Mike Scott
