Term Immigration Detention Centers
Code FF-1500.3300
Definition Facilities that are used to detain individuals entering the U.S.who either fail to establish identity, are deemed a danger to the public or are considered unlikely to appear for future immigration proceedings or removal. The detention is intended for a limited time until a hearing can be arranged. The facilities are under the jurisdiction of the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (BICE) and are used to incarcerate non-citizens while removal proceedings are being completed and, in some cases, while asylum claims are being brought before the Immigration Court. BICE is part of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
