Manuel is currently being held at Etowah County Detention Center in Gadsden, Alabama.
Letters sent to detainees must include the last four digits of the detainee’s A-Number (File Number), plus the sender’s name and address.
On ICE’s website, it says that the mail is not read upon opening, but all mail is subject to screening for contraband and the delivering officer will open the envelope and inspect it.
To send a letter, postcard, or any other item, address the envelope to:
Manuel L. Duran Ortega A#2678
Etowah County Detention Center New Orleans Field Office
827 Forrest Avenue
Gadsden, AL 35901
Manuel can receive books.
Keep in mind that they need to be in Spanish. The book needs to be paperback, it can’t be graphic, and you need to make sure you include the last four digits of his A-Number.
If your mail is not delivered, it will be returned to you. The delivering officer usually writes the reason why it wasn’t delivered on the envelope for you to know.
