Johnson County Detention Center

The Johnson County Detention Center is a county-owned and operated facility located south of Dallas in Cleburne, TX. The building has gone from a jail for criminals in Johnson County to an immigration detention center. Noncitizens who have been apprehended crossing the border illegally and those who have been arrested for living in the country without proper documentation can wind up in the Johnson County Detention Center.

Putting noncitizens in a detention center is a way for the government to ensure a person will appear in front of an immigration judge. Detention by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) usually occurs when a noncitizen has committed a crime, skipped hearing dates, found crossing the border illegally or has overstayed their visa. Regardless of the situation, a person should immediately seek the advice of an experienced immigration Lawyer if they find themselves in the Johnson County Detention Center.
