Chico-Polo v. Department of Corrections, No. 307804 (Mich. Ct. App. Jan. 8, 2013) (published)
There is also a concurring opinion.
MCL 791.234b allows qualified inmates who have served at least 1/2 of the minimum sentence and have been ordered removed to request a transfer to ICE custody for purposes of removal. The Court held that this does not apply to inmates who receive a life sentence because there is no court-imposed minimum sentence, even though the legislature has made them eligible for parole after 20 years.
