Getting the Facts About Folkston ICE Processing Center
While many ICE detention centers are located in remote areas of the country, the Folkston ICE Processing Center is in a particularly rural area. It is located in Folkston, Georgia, which is about one hour north of Jacksonville, Florida and approximately five hours southeast of Atlanta. The facility is located just slightly east of Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge. The detention facility was established at the D.Ray James correctional site, and it has a capacity of 1,118 people. It is managed by the private company The Geo Group. Similar to other ICE detention facilities, detainees cannot receive or make phone calls. Anyone who is seeking to be in contact with a detainee at the facility must leave messages or send hard-copy mail.
In total, more than 22,000 ICE detainees were being housed in ICE detention centers at the start of 2022, based on current data. More than 75 percent of those ICE detainees do not have a criminal record, and many that do have only minor violations on their records, including traffic-related offenses. Given the rural location of the Folkston ICE Processing Center, it can be extremely difficult for friends and family members of detainees to visit with loved ones during the limited visitation ours, but our dedicated Georgia immigration will ensure that we do everything we can to learn the facts of your loved one’s case and to begin taking action against removal or deportation.
