Explanation

The amendment requires that whenever a non-legal resident of the U.S. is convicted of a felony and detained in Department of correction facilities, that they immediately be transferred to federal authorities for deportation. The impact of this amendment is uncertain. Currently, the DOC has agreements with federal authorities on detaining prisoners and it is uncertain the extent to which the amendment would affect those agreements.
