Mira Loma is contracted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to house illegal immigrants until their immigration case is decided. We function as a regular County jail with the exception that the individuals we house are identified as detainees. Federal detainees representing over sixty countries world-wide. They are being detained at the facility until their case is decided.

It is the mission of the Mira Loma Detention Center to safely and securely house federal detainees awaiting deportation to their country of origin. The detainees live in barrack-style housing and have daily access to medical services, recreation, library, and stores. Religious and school programs are also available to the detainees. There is three Executive Office of Immigration Review courtrooms at the facility. Federal judges conduct on-site deportation hearings.

Each barrack houses up to 60 detainees. They are allowed to have up to $70.00 on them at any time. They use this cash to purchase items from the vending machines or jail store if they wish. All detainees are offered yard time at least once per day. They have a coach from La Puente School District that maintains all the sporting equipment (soccer, volleyball, basketball, ping pong, etc.). The detainees always have some kind of activity while they are in the yard.

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement personnel assigned to Mira Loma do all the transporting, releasing, tracking and deporting of all detainees assigned here. Deputies and Custody Assistants run the E.O.I.R. courts while the I.C.E. carries out the court's orders.
