El Paso Processing Center Attorneys

El Paso Processing Center

The El Paso Processing Center is located in the west Texas city of El Paso and is one of hundreds of immigration facilities currently operating in the United States. Although a large portion of detainees are from Mexico, the El Paso Processing center houses detainees from Central America, India, Columbia and many other places. Some of these detainees may not see an immigration judge for months, especially since the now resolved government shutdown has made a record-high backlog of more than 800,000 cases.

Many noncitizens who are captured by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) crossing the border or are found to be living in the United States without proper documentation can wind up in the El Paso Processing Center where they will most likely face deportation. The best thing people can do if they find themselves in an immigration detention center is contact an experienced immigration attorney who can help them explore all of their legal options.

There is no reason why you should go through the detention process alone. The Gonzalez Law Group has experienced lawyers who can help you go over all of your legal options. Being arrested by ICE agents and going to the El Paso Processing Center can seem scary, but it doesn’t have to be with The Gonzalez Law Group by your side.
