Over the past six weeks, 1,307 foreign-born inmates were booked into the jail. That's a decrease of 622 inmates compared to the same time frame last year, when 1,929 foreign-born inmates were jailed. Conway said the jail's overall population is down 300 inmates.
"That's never happened since I've been sheriff."
"We've always been on the increase," Conway said. "I keep wanting to pinch myself because I can't believe it's really happening."
The inmates who were detained for ICE hailed from Africa, Colombia, Cuba, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico and Panama, among other places.
