The Northwest Detention Center, a privately owned and operated immigration detention center, was built on the Tacoma Tideflats to replace a similar facility in Seattle. The NWDC, which opened in 2004 with a 500-bed capacity, has since expanded capacity three times to 1,575 beds, making it one of the largest immigration detention centers in the U.S. This photo was taken in spring 2012.
