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 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.

According to Department of Correction Chief Edward Flores, the Grand Jury report is being assessed, and a response will be submitted to the county Board of Supervisors within three months.
"We're trying to come up with some creative ways to resolve the concerns with the limitations we have," Flores said.
According to Flores, vocational training is offered at Elmwood "as the physical plant allows us to."He said the jail is limited by the facilities it has to offer various vocational training.According to the Grand Jury report, male inmates can take training in blueprint reading, cabinetmaking, carpentry, computers classes, food safety, industrial safety, landscaping, upholstery or welding, while female inmates can take computer classes.Landscaping was formerly offered to women also, but Flores said there was difficulty in garnering interest.
Of Elmwood's 2,500 male inmates, about 900 are eligible for vocational training, while 150 of the 520 women are eligible for the program.Flores said there are matching computer training classes in both the men's and women's facilities.But, he said all other vocational programs are on the men's side.
"We don't mix and match men and women," Flores said."We'd either need to construct a facility or retrofit to do a cooking class."
According to a survey conducted by the Grand Jury, female inmates would be interested in taking classes in cooking, medical records, cosmetology, sewing, jewelry making, carpentry, manicuring, landscaping and upholstery.The report recommends working to fairly allocate available resources to achieve gender parity in vocational courses.
Flores said much focus is placed on substance abuse and parenting classes for female inmates.He said 60 to 80 percent of Elmwood inmates have some type of substance abuse problem, and explained that substance-abuse classes are often mandated by the court.
With regard to the report's finding that Inmate Welfare Funds were used to support DOC salary and overhead expense, Flores said the positions paid with the funds "all support in one way or another the inmate programs."
Chief Flores said the Depart-ment of Correction will respond to the report, but pointed out that budgetary constraints have had a major impact on staffing in the jail.
