An advisory council to Homeland Security criticized a report Thursday that suggested privately run detention facilities may be the only way to house the surging numbers of immigrants facing deportations.

More than three-quarters of the Homeland Security Advisory Council rejected a key section of the report that state the “reliance on private prisons should, or inevitably must, continue,” US News reports.

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson formed a six-member subcommittee to write the report.

The Homeland Security Advisory Council upheld sections of the report that demanded more oversight and monitoring of immigration detention facility.
