Federal immigration officials are seeking additional space in southern Colorado.
That’s according to an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) representative, who says the agency’s detention and removal office in Denver will be obtaining more room for workers in Pueblo. Earlier in the week, Colorado Confidential reported that the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) was requesting over 9,000 square feet of rental space for ICE in the counties of Fremont or Pueblo.
“The Detention and Removal Operations Office in Denver is currently working with GSA to obtain additional space for its increased personnel in Pueblo,” said ICE spokesman Carl Rusnok in an e-mail. “This is a standard request for additional space.”
According to a federal contract solicitation notice, the building will include a fortified “sally port” gate and holding cells.
