TL;DR

A divided Supreme Court on Tuesday backed the governments authority to lock up immigrants awaiting deportation after they get out of prison following criminal convictions giving President Trump a win in his war on illegal immigration. The law at issue states that the government can detain convicted immigrants when the alien is released from criminal detention. Under federal immigration law immigrants convicted of certain offenses are subject to mandatory detention during their deportation process. The Supreme Court on Tuesday endorsed the U. governments authority to detain immigrants awaiting deportation anytime after they have completed prison terms for criminal convictions handing President Donald Trump a victory as he pursues hardline immigration policies. The ruling left open the possibility that some individual immigrants could challenge their detention. In both of the detention cases the Supreme Court reversed the San Francisco based 9th U. Circuit Court of Appeals a liberal leaning court that Trump has frequently criticized. Under federal immigration law immigrants convicted of certain offenses are subject to mandatory detention during their deportation process.
