Personal Hygiene Products for Safe & Sanitary Detention Facilities

Border Patrol Agents are focused 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on securing our international land borders and coastal waters between Ports of Entry. They safeguard the American people from terrorists and their weapons, drSafe Personal Hygiene Productsug smugglers, and the illegal entry of undocumented aliens.

Once in federal custody, illegal immigrants are held in a variety of facilities led by different agencies — from processing centers operated by Customs and Border Protection, to detention facilities run by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, to shelters for children under the supervision of the Office of Refugee Resettlement within the Health and Human Services Department.

Immigration detention is the policy of holding individuals suspected of visa violations, illegal entry or unauthorized arrival. Those subject to deportation and removal are placed in detention until a decision is made by immigration authorities to grant a visa and release them into the community, or to repatriate them to their country of departure.

According to the federal governement, about 850,000 people were apprehended and taken into custody by border patrol agents in fiscal year 2019, which ran from Oct. 1, 2018 to Sept. 30, 2019. According to government data, Texas, California, Arizona, Georgia and Louisiana are the top five states with the largest number of people in U.S. immigration detention per day.


While in detention, a formal removal proceeding is usually begun by the US government. A case is typically started after 2 weeks and it can sometimes take several weeks or even up to 90 days. Detainees are not serving time for a crime. Rather they’re waiting for a hearing to determine whether they can legally remain in the country while being kept in what is considered “civil detention”, intended to ensure that people show up for those hearings.

During this time, detainees are housed or held in crowded prison-like immigration facilities across the country with limited access to spare clothes and no laundry facilities.  Adult and children aged detainees held for days, weeks, or even months need food, water and access to basic necessities such as soap, deodorant to upkeep personal hygiene and toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss to maintain oral health.

Procuring basic personal hygiene items and temporary bedding supplies can be a costly ordeal. According to federal government data, it costs $149.58 taxpayer dollars to detain one person for one day in a privately-run immigrant prisons, and $98.27 in a municipal-run immigrant jail.
