Behind tall walls, the grassy compound offers inmates a salad bar, a library with Internet access, cable TV, an indoor gym with basketball courts, and soccer fields. Instead of guards, unarmed "resident advisers" patrol the grounds in polo shirts and khakis.

It is a far cry from the grim and sometimes dangerous county lockups and local jails that hold most immigration detainees across the country.

The new 608-bed facility is in Karnes City, southeast of San Antonio, and will house only adult men who present minimal safety concerns or flight risk, officials said. It is part of an effort by the Obama administration to improve conditions for some of the 33,000 people now in detention as their immigration cases are reviewed.
