There is only one remaining immigration detention center in New Mexico:
- Otero County Processing Center – Chaparral, New Mexico
Sometimes, immigrants are temporarily housed at the Albuquerque Immigration Office. Persons detained there are usually sent to the El Paso Processing Center within 24 hours. While there used to be an immigration detention facility in Albuquerque — the Bernalillo County Detention Center — it is no longer in use by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
