Q: When will an inmate be informed if he will be deported?

My husband was sentenced to 4 years at 85% for drug trafficking. He is a U.S resident he was never informed of any possibility of deportation during or after his plea. He has left the county and will be transferred to prison. When will he be informed of deportation if that applies to him?

ICE will place an "immigration hold" on him. When he is freed from criminal custody, he will be placed in immigration custody and will have a deportation hearing before an Immigration Judge.

It is very likely. A drug trafficking offense is one that will get you deported, however, and assuming he pleaded guilty rather than taking it to trial, the United States Supreme Court stated in Padilla v. Kentucky that a plea is not a knowing and voluntary one if he was not advised of the... Read more »

No. If you are aliens (non-citizens), whether or not you are married to each other would make no difference. You would still be aliens, and have to be naturalized to become citizens.
