Yes, it is likely that ICE will issue a detainer. The issues are more complicated as to whether he can stay. More information is needed. How long has he lived in the U. S.? Assuming that he can prove that he lived in the U. S. for ten years, the law allows the Immigration Judge to deny what is called non permanent resident cancellation of removal to an applicant who lacks good moral character.
Whether someone in your husband's situation lacks good moral character is decided on a case by case basis. It depends upon the facts and the discretion of the immigration judge. However, it is conceivable, but less likely that he will be approved for an immigration bond based upon his re-arrest. It will take both facts and incredibly time consuming efforts by an experienced immigration attorney to convince the judge that he should be granted relief.

Given that ICE was already trying to deport him based on the first 2 DUIs, the third does not improve his chances. However, as Attorney Dixler explained, there may be some relief available to him depending on his personal and family circumstances. It will not be easy. Hire an attorney before his release date.
