Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) last fall held an “Industry Day” on detention reform as a way to get feedback from current and potential contractors and other interested parties. The event was closed to the news media.

ICE provided to the Center for Investigative Reporting a list of the companies represented, but would not disclose who the attendees were. The event was held at the Julie Myers Conference room at ICE headquarters.

The companies in attendance range from builders to current jailers to the Royal Bank of Canada. Several already have detention-related contracts or are staffed with former ICE or the old Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) officials.
