Scheduled for Tuesday, Navarro, aged 74, is poised to become the first former White House official incarcerated for contempt of Congress. His destination is a minimum-security federal Bureau of Prisons satellite camp in Miami, with the notable feature of being close enough to hear the morning roar of lions.

Expressing apprehension, Navarro's prison consultant, Sam Mangel, conveyed his client's nervousness about entering this unfamiliar environment, despite the sentence's duration. Mangel, part of a specialized niche within the legal realm, aids affluent convicts and their families in preparing for incarceration, including Navarro, with whom he spoke on Monday.

Convicted for failing to respond to congressional subpoenas relating to the House's of the January 6, 2021, US Capitol attack, Navarro faces a four-month prison term. Though still appealing and seeking Supreme Court intervention before his Tuesday morning surrender, Navarro's fate hangs in the balance. Similarly, Steve Bannon, another Trump advisor sentenced for contempt of Congress in the same probe, awaits resolution on his appeals, postponing his prison reporting date.

Stanley Brand, representing Navarro as one of his defense attorneys, underscores the historic precedent set by these events, signaling implications for future White House aides facing congressional subpoenas.

Absent intervention from the Supreme Court, Navarro will likely not serve the full four months due to early release provisions for federal inmates. Anticipating approximately 90 days served, Mangel envisions Navarro's prison routine involving classes and employment. Advising roles that offer respite from Miami's sweltering weather, Mangel suggests positions such as a law library clerk or orderly.

Considering Navarro's age, arrangements will be made for him to reside in a dormitory housing elderly inmates, albeit with limited privacy. Assured of safety, Mangel notes the presence of other clients, including a doctor and a politically involved individual, already acclimatized to the facility, ready to assist Navarro in his adjustment.

The Miami federal correctional facility, housing fewer than 200 inmates, serves as one of the country's oldest prison camps. It notably accommodates a significant population from due to its proximity to the territory. Despite the dated infrastructure, Navarro will have access to amenities such as phone calls, email, and television channels in both English and Spanish.

The Justice Department, opposing Navarro's final plea to evade imprisonment, deems his arguments meritless, urging the Supreme Court to deny his emergency appeal. Solicitor General Elizabeth Prelogar contends that Navarro's claims lack substance and are unlikely to reverse his conviction, emphasizing his failure to comply with subpoenas despite any potential executive privilege claims.
