Last week, this reporter made public the results of an investigation made by the Department of Homeland Security Office of the Inspector General of the Imperial Regional Detention Facility located east of Calexico and south of Holtville.

According to the inspection results, the MTC-operated site has been poorly managed, even though the company gets more than $150 daily per detainee. That amount represents tens of thousands of dollars in daily cash.
