What We Don’t Do

  • We don’t manage any shelters or facilities housing unaccompanied minors
  • We don’t manage any border patrol holding facilities along the U.S. Southwest border
  • We don’t manage any facilities with tent structures or chain-link fencing in housing areas
  • We don’t manage any facilities that are overcrowded
  • We don’t play a role in passing criminal justice or immigration laws, and we have never advocated for or against criminal justice or immigration enforcement policies

What We Do

  • We manage modern immigration Processing Centers under contract with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) with amenities including artificial turf soccer fields, flat screen TVs in living areas, indoor and outdoor recreation, classrooms, multipurpose rooms, and libraries
  • We proudly comply with the Obama-Biden Administration’s performance-based national detention standards
  • We provide safe and humane residential care for civilly detained individuals during the adjudication of their immigration cases, with an average length of stay of 30 to 60 days
  • The services we provide today are in no way different from the high-quality services we provided for eight years under the Obama-Biden Administration
  • We manage federal prisons that are reserved almost exclusively for non-citizen criminal aliens and only one of our federal prisons houses fewer than 300 D.C. residents
  • We manage correctional facilities housing state and local inmates and provide offender rehabilitation and post-release support services, proven to reduce recidivism, through our GEO Continuum of Care
  • We manage facilities that are highly rated by independent accreditation entities including the American Correctional Association, the National Commission on Correctional Health Care, and The Joint Commission
  • We advocate for public-private partnerships that deliver private sector solutions to public sector challenges with strict government oversight. The facilities we manage have on-site, full-time government monitors
