Where is My Loved One Detained?

The Department of Homeland Security has broad discretion to choose the place of detention. Similarly, the Bureau of Prisons has broad discretion to determine the site of incarceration of persons subject to deportation, including local contract jails and prisons.

Pursuant to this policy, aliens are detained in several county prisons in Pennsylvania that are under contract with the Department of Homeland Security. Additionally, if your relative was stopped for a traffic offense, DUI or other crime he may initially be detained in the county where he was arrested. Families with children are detained in The DHS Family Shelter in Berks County. The principal immigration detention facility is the York County Prison where there are three immigration courts in the facility itself. Please note that the aliens detained in the prisons do not appear on the published inmate list except if they are being detained for a crime, as opposed to an immigration violation.  Here is a list of the county prisons that have held detained aliens for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE):

If you are not certain of where your loved one is being detained, visit ICE Detainee Locator and fill in the information requested. It might take ICE/detention facility 24 hours for them to put your loved one’s information in the system. If you do not see his location, try again at a later time: https://locator.ice.gov/odls/#/index
