Our Los Angeles immigration attorneys stay current with the latest news in immigration. Our U.S. immigration lawyers have learned that there are an estimated 500 jobs that are expected to be eliminated in June at the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention center in El Centro, California.
The contract between the Department of Homeland Security and the facility ends on June 30, 2014, and there are chances it will not be renewed. The facility’s age and high daily per capita rate are the cited factors as to why the contact for the ICE employees will not be renewed. However, if the detention center in Calexico, California is not ready to accept inmates by the end of June, ICE officials will consider extending the contract for up to 6 months.
