Adelanto Slated to be Largest U.S. Immigration Detention Facility

The Adelanto Detention Center in California is expanding.  The facility is operated by GEO Group and currently detains on any given day 1300 men for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).  The expansion will include an extra 640 beds for people in the custody of ICE, including for women. By the end of the project, there will be 1940 beds in Adelanto, making it the largest immigration detention facility in the country.  ICE and GEO plan to have the expansion complete by next summer.  To learn more about this expansion and what it means for the community, email Christina at CFialho@endisolation.org.
