Oklahoma City possesses an ICE sub office. This office is located at 1220 Sovereign Row, Oklahoma City, OK 73108. ICE does not release a public telephone number for this sub office. However, this seems to be the main hub of detention and removal in Oklahoma. Sometimes this may be referred to as the “Oklahoma City Hold Room.”
Most ICE detainees are held at one of two facilities in Oklahoma. The first is the David L. Moss Criminal Justice Center, 300. N. Denver Ave., Tulsa, OK 74103. Immigration Court is held in this facility by televideo. ICE pays $54.13 per day to house detainees here.
The second facility is the Moore Detention Center, 111 S. Alabama Ave., Okmulgee, OK 74447. The telephone number is (918) 938-0981. This is an annex to the Okmulgee County Jail, which is nearby. The Moore Detention Center is operated by the Okmulgee County Criminal Justice Authority. Immigration Court is held in this facility by televideo.
A third facility appears to be opening as of June 2019: Kay County Detention Center, 1101 W. Dry Rd., Newkirk, OK 74647, Tel. (580) 362-3393.
A fourth facility has been used for up to 72 hours before transferring detainees out to another facility. That is the Garvin County Jail, 201 W Grant Ave., Pauls Valley, OK 73075, Tel. (405) 238-7591. Most detainees will be transferred quickly to another facility in Oklahoma or one in Texas. ICE pays $43.50 per day to house detainees here.
ICE lists two other facilities in Oklahoma. The Grady County Law Enforcement Center is located at 215 N. 3rd St., Chickasha, OK, 73018, Tel. (405) 222-1000. Historically, this has been used for pretrial detention for persons criminally charged with unlawful reentry before the United States District Court. In the past, Fort Sill Army Training Center in Lawton, OK, has been used for “border surge” detention.
