Angry Price of calls from Alexandria Staging Facility?

I have a Question. my boyfriend was just transferred today to this facility as he should be getting deported no later than this week. He has called me via collect call since he no lo ger has an account. As I was looking through my bank statement noticed each of the 4 calls were charged at $61.87. does anyoneelse k know if there is a prepaid system for this favility( i cant seem to find one) as these calls are extremely unaffordable, and they seem to charge just a single rate for each call because they are all charged at the same rate. i would greatly appreciate any information as this is very frustrating and it is an abuse to charge that much money for someone to receive a call from a loved one.

Thank you so much. I was able to find out how to make a prepaid account so that I do not have to pay collect. I was charged a total of $247.48 dor 4 calls that did not add up to 20 minutes between the 4. My boyfriend did not know about the charge as he thought it was 0.25 cents. I will be contacting the company to dispute the charges Because they are stealing.

If anyone wants to make a prepaid account for this facility the contact number to call is 888-516-0115

Wow. Seems my husband will be sent there soon. What happened with the calls? How long did it take for him to actually be deported. Thanks!
