The Adelanto Detention center only houses male immigrant detainees. Although ICE (Immigration, Customs Enforcement) has custody of the detainees, the facility is operated by one of the nations largest private-for-profit prison companies, the GEO Group. This means that the GEO Group profits off of each detainee that it holds at the facility.
