CHICAGO - Gov. Pat Quinn said selling a prison in rural northwest Illinois to the federal government is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create jobs in the struggling area.

But plans to sell the prison that would then be used to house some detainees from the Guantanamo Bay detention center in Cuba is creating controversy because of safety concerns.

Federal officials are expected at Thomson Correctional Center on Monday to inspect the prison.

"Obama administration is signaling that a state prison in rural Thomson, Ill., will probably become the new home for scores of terrorism suspects now housed at the U.S. naval base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba."
