CCA Detention Center


If someone you know has been detained by Border Patrol or Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), then he or she is probably at the CCA Detention Center, also known as the San Diego Detention Facility. CCA is a private corporation that works under contract with ICE to house immigrant detainees. Visiting hours for family and friends are limited to the weekends and holidays, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 pm. Visitors must be identified on a visitors list by the detainee prior to visiting. To locate a detained person at this facility and for further information on visitation, call CCA at 619.661.9119.

ICE officers are in charge of deciding bond amounts for the release of detainees who are fighting their cases in immigration court. If you would like to request a bond for a family member, call 619.710.8300 and ask to speak to the officer in charge of the case. It will help to know the “A number” of the person who is detained. If you do not know the “A number” and you are a family member of the detained person, you can ask the officer in charge for number.

To find out if someone has a court date, call 800.898.7180 and follow the instructions for information on hearing dates, court decisions, and appeal information. You will need to know the “A number” of the person who is in court proceedings. If you need further information, contact the San Diego court directly at 619.557.5758.


If you or someone in your family has been mistreated while detained at CCA, report the mistreatment to the American Civil Liberties Union.
