Statement on ICE extension for Intergovernmental Service Agreement with Torrance County, New Mexico for the Torrance County Detention Facility

WASHINGTON — U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Enforcement and Removal Operations has extended the current intergovernmental service agreement with Torrance County, New Mexico, for the Torrance County Detention Facility in Estancia, New Mexico. The contract extension is valid through Sept. 29, 2024. The ability for the agency to remove individuals to their home countries, hold those in custody who require detention and are a public safety threat is directly dependent on location and availability of detention space. ICE continues to modernize the immigration system as resources allow to realize cost efficiencies across the operational landscape.

The agency has an intergovernmental service agreement (IGSA) with Torrance County and the facility is operated by CoreCivic, a valued partner in the immigration detention space. The use of private detention contractors is a vital piece of the national detention system enabling ICE to execute its mission. A list of current contracts can be found on the website under the tab titled Detention Facility Contracts – H.R. 116-458. Requests for details on specific contracts can be made through the FOIA process.
