For 35 years, we've worked with Democrats and Republicans to make sure those in our care receive humane, dignified and respectful treatment while they go through the legal process.
We do not enforce immigration laws or arrest anyone who may be in violation of immigration laws.
We do not know the circumstances of people when they are placed in a facility or have any say whatsoever in their deportation or release.
We have a long-standing policy not to advocate for or against legislation that serves as the basis for, or determines the duration of, a person’s detention.
We have not, do not and will not operate facilities for the purpose of housing unaccompanied migrant children.
We do not contract with U.S. Customs and Border Protection or manage any of the agency's temporary holding facilities.
In 2014, we worked with the Obama Administration to build the South Texas Family Residential Center to care specifically for migrant mothers and their children together.
The South Texas Family Residential Center provides families with medical services like vaccinations, legal assistance for immigration cases, and Pre-K through 12th grade schooling.
When migration patterns change or elected leaders change their policies, we help make sure that taxpayers aren’t left holding the bag. The government would have to spend billions to build its own detention facilities and employ thousands of new federal workers.
Ending the use of private contractors like us would lead to more and worse humanitarian crises. The government alone does not have the expertise or capability to quickly and flexibly manage migrant surges like the current border crisis.
