"7. The provisions of paragraph H.1. shall not apply to any inmate populations housed in the local or regional jail pursuant to an agreement entered into after July 1, 2008 with the U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement for the housing of inmates identified by ICE as illegally present in the U.S., or otherwise removable, and identified in the Local Inmate Data System (LIDS) as 1) born in another country, and 2) a citizen of another country, or for whom this information is unknown. "
