When people are arrested in Las Vegas, ICE (Immigration Customs Enforcement) checks their fingerprints for immigration issues. If it appears the arrestees are non-citizens who may be subject to deportation, they are placed under an “ICE hold” at the jail while ICE in Nevada researches the matter.
Depending on the case, the arrestees may then be transferred to ICE custody at the Las Vegas Immigration Jail (also called the Henderson Detention Center) pending the resolution of the Las Vegas Immigration Court matter.
