What is the phone number for the St. Louis Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) office?

If your family member was recently detained by Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers in Eastern Missouri or Southern Illinois, they are probably in the custody of the St. Louis ICE office.  The officers handling the actual arrest and removal of your family member are called Enforcement and Removal Officers.

Your family member will most likely be detained at a county jail.  Unlike other parts of the country, St. Louis does not have an immigration detention center.  Instead, immigration detainees are housed at local county jails, including Mississippi County Jail in Charleston, Missouri; Scott County Jail in Benton; Montgomery County Jail in Montgomery City; and, Lincoln County Jail in Troy.  Although this is where your loved one will be housed during their detention, they will actually be processed by the ICE officers at the St. Louis field office at 1222 Spruce Street, Room 1.100, St. Louis, MO 63103.  The phone number at St. Louis ICE is (314) 244-9787 (this number does not work for detainees held by other ICE offices).

Before you call that number, however, you should consider contacting an experienced immigration attorney to assist you in your loved one's case.  Immigration laws are complex.  In addition, the job of an ICE officer is not to look after your family member's best interests, but rather to deport him or her to their home country.  You owe it to yourself to at least talk to an immigration attorney before interacting with ICE.  Your family member may mistakenly give away certain legal rights, so it is important to get the assistance of an immigration attorney as early in the process as possible.
