According to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Office of Detention and Removal website, the federal agency has only one center for detention in Colorado, a privately owned facility located in Aurora. The website doesn't mention that the agency may also be holding people at unlisted sub-field offices around Colorado.

ICE disputes the terminology.
