"It was a strategy to help us financially," said Edward Flores, chief of Santa Clara County's Department of Correction.
Those budget cuts have only gotten worse, with the county expecting $1.25 million less in fiscal year 2010.
In turn, the federal contract has become even more important. Flores said he expects to make up about half the expected deficit with federal contracts, both with the immigration agency and the U.S. Marshals Service. He is also trying to negotiate a higher nightly rate.
The county received nearly $7 million to house detainees in 2008.
"We have become very reliant on this revenue," Flores said.

Edward Flores, Santa Clara County's chief of correction, said his department is working to correct issues at Elmwood but that county funding has constrained efforts for many years.
"We've had to do more with less," Flores said, adding over the last few years the DOC has been directed to reduce its departmental budget by $28 million.
Flores said although the DOC each year submits proposals to county officials for capital improvement funding, the jail doesn't always receive those monies.
"We compete against a lot of other departments in the county for funding," he said.
As to security issues, Flores said his department is continually working to correct any known deficiencies.
He said new security fencing, alarms as well as a renovated control room were advancing as funds allowed.Overall, Flores said he believed Elmwood is a secure facility that poses a minimal threat to Milpitas residents.
"I do believe it's a secure facility, but there's always room to improve," Flores said.
Still, he added the city of Milpitas is bringing in new residential development, which is shrinking the buffer between the jail and residents.
"The community has grown up around us," Flores said.

Edward Flores, who has been chief of the Department of Correction for more than five years, acknowledged that housing federal and state prisoners makes running the 15th-largest county jail in the country, with an average inmate population of 4,500, even more complex.
"At the time 9/11 was still on everybody's mind,'' Flores said, helping to explain why few at the time questioned the idea of incarcerating ICE prisoners.

Edward Flores, Santa Clara County's chief of correction, said running Elmwood is a task that's been made much harder over the last few years due to fiscal cuts to the county government.
Over the last five years, Flores said $28 million in cuts to the county's correctional system have occurred.
"We've met those cuts with staff reductions, revenue measures and reorganization," he said.
He added for the 2008 fiscal year, the Department of Correction will have to make $8.38 million in further cuts.
"There is no additional monies out there; there's less money to do things," Flores said.
Flores said staffing levels at Elmwood would not change in the near future.
Flores added that needed physical improvements at Elmwood such as installing more surveillance cameras, lighting and a requested east gate sallyport to use as a place to better isolate and inspect incoming and outgoing vehicles, has been asked for by his department, but will likely not come.
"Those items are in the millions and it requires essentially capital money layouts," Flores said.
Flores said areas that are prone to security problems are being more closely monitored by the jail.
"We're making more checks of the east gate," he said.
In addition, he said more supervision of guards has taken place and changes in some older procedures have also been made.
"We're doing more thorough point-by-point security," Flores said.
He added that stronger disciplinary actions have been taken against guards who are seen as not properly doing their jobs.
He said the jail has always taken any perceived problem seriously.
"We have zero tolerance for escapes," Flores said.
"They should feel as safe living there as if they were living miles away," Flores said.
