ICE to relocate detention and removal's public reporting office

Office to move from Biscayne Blvd. to Krome Detention Center

MIAMI - U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) began today the relocation of its public access/order of supervision reporting office from Biscayne Blvd to the Krome Detention Center located at 18201 SW, 12th Street, Miami, FL 33194. The office will close temporarily until its relocation is completed on October 6. All aliens with ICE orders of supervision residing in South Florida are to report to the new location at the Krome Detention Center after this date.

Some improvements in service for those reporting to ICE are:

  • Extended reporting availability - Previously reporting was only available Monday to Friday. Now, officers will be available seven days a week to accommodate various reporting needs.
  • Scheduling options - instead of reporting to the 79th Street office and waiting long hours in line, aliens on orders of supervision will be able to call (305) 207-5064 to schedule their reporting time, thus minimizing their wait time.
  • Free parking is available and parking spaces will be clearly marked for those reporting on orders of supervision.

"This relocation will help those on an ICE order of supervision to comply with reporting requirements," said Michael Rozos, field office director for the ICE Office of Detention and Removal Operations in Florida. "We will continue monitoring ICE order of supervision cases for compliance with the immigration judge's order, and ensure that they are reporting in with ICE. This allows ICE to monitor immigration violators who could potentially pose a threat to public safety."

An order of supervision is used by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to release from custody aliens who have been ordered removed from the United States by an immigration judge, but cannot be physically removed to their country of origin for a variety of reasons. The alien's release from custody is subject to conditions of that release. The order of supervision does not confer any immigration status upon the alien. It also imposes reporting requirements and monitoring by deportation officers. Among several reporting requirements, the alien must demonstrate a continued effort to obtain travel documents, provide a current address, and be subject to mental or physical examinations. Failure to comply may result in an enforcement action such as arrest or a fine.

Additional information on apprehension, custody, and detention issues is available in 8 CFR 236.1 and 241 and the Zadvydas v. Davis et al. Supreme Court decision.

Anyone on an order of supervision who has not reported to ICE within the last 30 days can call (305) 207-5064 for a case analysis and to schedule an appointment for reporting, if necessary.
