El Paso Processing Center (ICE) is a regional jail facility that handles the intake from the El Paso County Sheriff's arrests but also from several surrounding counties located at 8915 Montana Ave El Paso, TX. This cooperative prison is funded by all of the counties that hold their detainees and sentenced inmates.

The El Paso Processing Center is an immigration detention facility located in El Paso, TX. The facility is technically an ICE Service Processing Center. It houses immigrant detainees who are either awaiting deportation or having their cases heard before the El Paso Immigration Court. The facility has space for about 840 inmates, with a daily population around 770.. Because of it's proximity to the border, it sometimes serves as a staging area for ICE to hold immigrants prior to deportation.

The El Paso Service Processing Center was one of 1,528 facilities that were used to house immigration detainees during the last decade, and one of 654 facilities nationwide that housed ICE detainees during the most recent 12 month period. Of these 654, there were 324 facilities that had at least 10 individuals who were deported or released. Excluding those facilities with fewer than 10 exits, the El Paso Service Processing Center last year ranked in the top 3 percent nationwide in the number of individuals leaving ICE detention. This means that 3 percent of the locations contributed the same or a larger number of exits, while 97 percent had a smaller number.

Deportations. Nationally, the most common reason that a detainee left ICE detention was that they were deported from the United States. During the most recent 12 month period for which comprehensive data are available, nationwide 81 percent of those leaving ICE detention were deported or "voluntarily" departed. By way of comparison, a higher percentage of detainees (88 percent) left the country from the El Paso Service Processing Center because they were formally deported, or left under the so-called "voluntary departure" procedure.
