Statement by ICE spokesperson Jenny Burke on the Adelanto ICE Processing Facility

WASHINGTON – U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement plans to issue a task order with the GEO Group, Inc. for the Adelanto ICE Processing facility in Adelanto, California to extend to September 30, 2024. The new task order will extend beyond the current 120-day task order issued on January 19 — effective February 19 to June 19 — and extends time available for the agency to realize potential relief from ongoing litigation that prevents full use of the facility. 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.
