Statement on ICE extension for Intergovernmental Service Agreement with Winn Parrish for the Winn Correctional Center

WASHINGTON — U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Enforcement and Removal Operations has extended the current intergovernmental service agreement with Winn Parrish for the Winn Correction Center in Winnfield, Louisiana. The contract extension is valid until June 30, 2024. The agency has an intergovernmental service agreement (IGSA) with Winn Parrish and the facility is operated by LaSalle Corrections, a valued partner in the immigration detention space.

The ability for the agency to remove individuals to their home countries, hold those in custody who require detention, and hold those who pose a threat to public safety or national security is directly dependent on the location and availability of detention space. ICE continues to modernize the immigration system as resources allow to realize cost efficiencies across its operations. 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.
