MTC partners with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to provide individuals in their care with a comfortable, helpful, and attentive environment. ICE detainees are housed at MTC facilities for very short periods of time, and during that time, MTC provides these men and women with opportunities to further their education, to participate in meaningful activities, and to prepare in all ways to return to their homes and families.
Arturo Rios, a detainee at MTC’s IAH Detention Center in Livingston, Texas talked about the experience he’s had at the facility,
“I just want to say thank you and commend the personnel and guards here at this detention center. Even in a place like this, these people [staff] make a huge difference for the best. They have treated me with respect and dignity…they have gone over and beyond. They come to work with a smile on their face. They try their best to help. They have made me feel like one of them. Congratulations on a well-managed facility.”
