Immigration in Texas: What should you know about processes and procedures?


If you live in the State of Texas, and you enter an immigration control point because you have relatives in Mexico or the United States, it is important that you know that if you commit a crime, or someone close to you did, it is likely that they will go to prison or deport them.

According to the ICE South Texas Processing Center, detainees cannot receive phone calls, so if you are a relative or close to a detainee and know about the fact, you should contact them directly at (210) 231- 4505 between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.

Once they accept and answer the call, it is necessary to indicate name, surname, date and country of birth. If you have an alias, please mention it.
