Foota Hype was moved to a different holding facility in Florida recently.

 He is still in custody after he was detained 90 days ago by United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

The popular Jamaican disc jock was relocated from the Krome Service Processing Centre to the Broward Transitional Centre (BTC).

 The facility, which is in Pompano Beach, Florida, has illegal immigrants and other “non-criminal and low-security detainees staying there.” It is also the place where new immigrants seeking asylum or residency stay.


Foota was detained on December 14, 2019, when he arrived at Port Everglades Seaport in Ft Lauderdale. He was aboard the Independence of the Seas cruise, that travelled from Falmouth, Jamaica.

In December the case was dismissed against the controversial disc jock by a Florida judge, but he still remained there.

 Sources revealed that Foota Hype’s legal team made a request for him to remain in custody in order to resolve his overall immigration concerns.

It was also revealed that Foota’s travel documents, which had allowed him temporary entry, had expired. The selector’s marriage to an American woman was reportedly dissolved before he was issued his green card, also 

Foota Hype’s last court hearing was on January 20, 2020. It is not clear at this time when he will face the judge again.
