U.S. Sen. Trent Lott and U.S. Rep. Chip Pickering, both R-Miss., announced Tuesday that the U.S. Department of Justice has awarded three grants in Mississippi.
Funded by the fiscal year 2004 State Criminal Alien Assistance Program, the grants help defray costs associated with the incarceration of criminal illegal aliens.
Lauderdale County will receive a grant of $687 and Pike County will receive $1,002. The Mississippi Department of Corrections was awarded a $38,471 grant.
Lauderdale County Sheriff Billy Sollie said the grant program is three or four years old. In the first year, Lauderdale County received about $30,000. The amounts have been decreasing the last couple of years since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, Sollie said, as funds are allocated in other areas.
