Secret detention center in Pueblo?

Posted By on Wed, Dec 23, 2009 at 6:45 PM

The Nation magazine apparently will soon publish a report that claims Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is maintaining 186 secret detention facilities around the country — including in three Front Range cities. From coloradoindependent.com:

According to the report, ICE has been confining people in “unlisted and unmarked subfield offices” around the country. A partial list of phone numbers and addresses suggest Colorado subfield offices exist in Denver, Aurora, Loveland and Pueblo.

An update to the Colorado Independent story notes that there may be a fifth facility in Grand Junction. For now, it looks like Colorado Springs — home to a new ICE office as of a few weeks ago — has not been home to a facility like this, where suspected illegal immigrants "can disappear into the system."
