As surrounding county jails begin to distance themselves from detaining immigrants on behalf of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Bergen County Jail has lagged. In late April, neighboring Essex County announced that it would be ending its contract with ICE. In Hudson County, legislators and officials have publicly expressed that they would also be open to ending their contracts with the agency. Elberon Development Group, the developer that owns the building that houses the Elizabeth Contract Detention Facility, is suing to break the lease.
