Guam - Just as the island has seen a rash of crime on island along with overcrowding in our prison, a roundtable meeting has been set with federal and local law enforcement on the topic of deportation of certain convicted criminals under the Compacts of Free Association.

Senator Rory Respicio is spearheading the roundtable with over a dozen stakeholders to focus on a provision he introduced within Senator Brant McCreadie's Three Strikes Bill now Public Law 32-049 that would help alleviate crowding at our island's prison. Specifically, upon conviction of a deportable crime, the AG would notify U.S. immigration of Guam's desire to have COFA citizens deported.

The roundtable is set for October 14 at 10am at the Legislature's Public Hearing Room.
