Supreme Court Endorses Government Authority to Detain Immigrants
The US Supreme Court, the highest court in the United States of America, ruled on Tuesday that immigrants convicted of crimes can be placed in indefinite detention at any time - not just immediately after serving prison sentences.
And they can be held without bail.
In February 2018, the Supreme Court "curbed the ability of immigrants held in long-term detention during deportation proceedings to argue for release."
[T]the Supreme Court has endorsed the most extreme interpretation of immigration detention statutes, allowing mass incarceration of people without any hearing, simply because they are defending themselves against a deportation charge. ~ American Civil Liberties Union lawyer Cecilia Wang
