The South Texas Family Residential

Center (STFRC) was constructed
specifically within the framework of
U.S. Immigration and Customs
Enforcement's (ICE) family residential
standards which were developed for the
housing of civilly detained family
groups. STFRC opened in late 2014 and
was at full occupancy by early 2015.

a As with the other ICE family residential centers, STFRC provides appropriate and
respectful living conditions for families awaiting the outcome of immigration hearings or

residents. Further, the facility complies with the Family Residential Standards (FRS) and
undergoes monthly and bi-annual inspections. There is also a Detention Service Manager
