Trump Wins: Supreme Court Rules Convicted Illegals Can Be Detained And Deported

The Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Trump administration Tuesday, allowing federal officials to detain and deport illegal immigrants after they have served their time in the U.S. for other crimes.

It was a 5-4 decision that reversed the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, which restricted when the immigrants could be deported. For example, the 9th Circuit ruling stated that Immigration and Custom’s Enforcement would have to detain the illegal immigrants immediately or they would exempt from ever being detained.

The court’s majority opinion was delivered by Justice Samuel Alito.

Alito wrote that in the past, the court has “held time and time again, an official’s crucial duties are better carried out late than never.”

He also rejected the argument from lawyers representing the immigrants involved in the case that they are subject to mandatory detention only if they are arrested “on the day he walks out of jail,” giving the example that state and local officials “sometimes rebuff the government’s request that they give notice when a criminal alien will be released.”

Alito was joined by Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, and Brett Kavanaugh, according to the Associated Press.

Justices Steven Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan dissented.

Reading his dissent from the bench, Breyer warned the “greater importance in the case lies in the power that the majority’s interpretation grants to the government.”

“It is a power to detain persons who committed a minor crime many years before. And it is a power to hold those persons, perhaps for many months, without any opportunity to obtain bail,” he wrote.

  1. It’s amazing this issue had to go all the way to the SCOTUS. You’d think it’d be a no brainer. Here illegally, commit a crime, go to jail, then be deported. That should be easy enough for anyone to understand. Even better, here illegally, be arrested and instantly deported. Of course we need a WALL to keep them from traipsing back in any time they wish.

  3. Funny how supreme justices serving the left don’t know the difference between a citizen and an illegal invader, justice breyer, and three others should actually READ the Constitution. ILLEGALS are INVADERS, and dangerous as well as costly to OUR COUNTRY.

  4. Finally, but that is not enough. As long as Mexico does not help us out. Good time to invest in Mexico. All you need is to drive your bus back and fourth from the United Stated, and then right through Mexico City, and then to Guatemala. Mexico must not have a military. Or how much does a new leader need in pay-offs? Before he closes their Southern border that connects to Central America? Guess Who?
