CoreCivic cares deeply about every person in our care. None of our facilities provides housing for children who aren’t under the supervision of a parent.

It's important to note that, under long-standing policy, CoreCivic does not advocate for or against legislation or policies that determine the basis for or duration of an individual’s detention. We also do not enforce immigration laws or policies or have any say whatsoever in an individual’s deportation or release. CoreCivic does not know the circumstances of individuals when they are placed in a facility, and our responsibility is to care for each person respectfully and humanely while they receive the legal due process that they are entitled to.

All of our immigration facilities are monitored very closely by the government, and each and every one is required to undergo regular review and audit processes that include ensuring an appropriate standard of living for all detainees. More than 500 Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials are currently assigned to CoreCivic’s eight detention facilities. CoreCivic has partnered with the federal government to operate detention facilities for more than 30 years, and we’ve worked with both Democrat and Republican administrations to meet their detention needs.
