NEW ICE PROCESSING CENTER WORK UNDERWAY

Construction is underway on the new Conroe ICE Processing Center on Hilbig Road near the Joe Corley Detention Center. Back in April GEO, a Florida based prison groupp announced the plans to build the $110 million detention center. This is what they said was part of a 10-year, renewable contract with Federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The center which is the first center built under the Trump administration is scheduled to open in December 2018. GEO is ICE’s second-largest private prison contractor. GEO said on a February investor call that it has approximately 3,000 empty beds nationwide. The company plans to build the new center instead of repurposing its unused capacity.The center coincides with President Donald Trump’s promised expansion of immigration detention, part of a crackdown on immigrants in the country illegally.
