Detention Centers

Published: February 23, 2010


Below is a list of jails and detention centers where Immigration and Customs Enforcement holds, or has held, noncitizens the government wants to deport, including asylum-seekers, people suspected of being in the country illegally and legal immigrants convicted of a wide range of crimes or misdemeanors. The list includes the results of annual inspections.

See the interactive table here.

It makes one wonder how the terms "deficient," "good," "meets standards," and "acceptable" are defined in this context. And what about the facilities that have not been inspected? Who makes these inspections? I'll have to do some more digging around to find out.
