A prison in northern Illinois is the leading contender to house some detainees transferred from the federal facility in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, two Obama administration officials told CNN Saturday.

Officials from the department of Defense, Justice and Homeland Security and federal Bureau of Prisons will be will be visiting the maximum-security Thomson Correctional Center, about 150 miles west of Chicago, on Monday, the officials said.

Earlier Saturday, a statement from Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn’s office said senior Obama administration officials would be visiting the Thomson prison to see whether the “virtually vacant, state of the art facility” could be of use to the Bureau of Prisons.

The statement didn’t mention the space possibly being utilized for Guantanamo detainees, but said that overcrowding is a “serious issue and one of the reasons why the Bureau of Prisons is interested in viewing Thomson Correction Center.”
