Detention, Enforcement »
We’re currently on hiatus at Business of Detention, but we’re excited to announce our new project Deportation Nation. DeportationNation.org is the home of an independent investigative reporting project that critically examines the increase in detention of innocent and low-level immigrant offenders as a result of enforcement programs mandated to target “dangerous criminal aliens.”
ICE announced the launch of its Online Detainee Locator System (ODLS), after months of promising the locator system as part of their 2009 reform. The locator will provide information on the current holding facility, phone number, and contact information for the regional office. Two different methods, users can search is by alien registration number and country of birth or first and last name, country of birth, and date of birthday.
For more: The ODLS is located on ICE’s public website, http://www.ice.gov,
