Laredo Detention Center Attorneys

Laredo Detention Center

The Laredo Detention Center is located within the city limits of Laredo, TX and is a relatively small facility that houses 258 detainees with immigration issues. The facility has both male and female inmates and is a multi-level security detention center. Noncitizens who are apprehended along the border and those who are caught living in the country without proper documentation can be processed through this facility.

The recent focus on immigration by the government has made private facilities like the Laredo Detention Center a hotspot for housing noncitizens. The recently enacted Texas Senate Bill 4 has made it easier for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers to work with local law enforcement in an attempt to capture as many noncitizens as possible.

Many noncitizens who go through the immigration process do it without the advice from an attorney. If you contact The Gonzalez Law Group, we will make sure you know exactly what is going on and what all of your legal options are. Marco Gonzalez and his team of immigration attorneys can determine the most effective legal strategies to help you or your loved one avoid removal.

If you have been detained by ICE when crossing the border in cities including Brownsville, Laredo, McAllen, Pharr and any other surrounding areas, contact The Gonzalez Law Group at (832) 530-4070 or fill out an online form for your free consultation. We are proud to represent anyone with immigration issues and will fight for you every step of the way.
