Exclamation Need info on CI Big Spring Flight Line, NOT FCI Big Spring

Hi everyone,
Newbie here...but would really like updated information on CI Big Spring in Texas (also known as Flightline) My dad was transferred there this week, he was born in Cuba.
Anyways, what is it like in there now? Iím extremely concerned about him and his health as he has ongoing health conditions that I feel arenít going to be taken care of. We are in California so itís going to be quite a trip to visit him.
Please, any current information you may have please let me know! This is so hard for me, my dad and I are so incredibly close and his grandkids miss him so incredibly much. I just want to make sure he will be okay. He was moved from a super low security federal in California to this place. Is it low security too? I canít really find any information online about CI Big Spring, all that I know is that itís where they send non us citizens and privately owned.

Are they going to deport him back to Cuba? I though thatís not even possible? Ugh my heart is just so broken right now.

CI Big Spring is still a Federal facility, not a Texas State facility. Here is what little info is on the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) website about CI Big Spring:

There is very little information on the private prison Geo Group owned CI Big Spring web page.

If ICE has placed a detainer on him, and that is the reason he was moved, he may end up in an immigration court to determine his post bop future.

This Trac Immigration article says that (some or all?) prisoners at the flightline unit are in ICE custody, not bop custody.
