Lawmakers next week will meet to discuss the issue of deporting regional immigrants who commit crimes on Guam.

A three-strikes bill passed by lawmakers in July, which calls for a life sentence for repeat offenders, also requires the island's attorney general to notify federal customs officials when a regional immigrant has been convicted of a crime eligible for deportation and to provide the documents required for deportation.

Federal treaties called Compacts of Free Association allow citizens of the Republic of Palau, the Republic of the Marshall Islands and the Federated States of Micronesia to live and work on Guam.

Sen. Rory Respicio, D-Agana Heights, will hold a meeting 10 a.m. Oct. 4 at the Legislature's public hearing room.
