Supreme Court Decision Upholds ICE Detention without Bail for Serious Crimes


On March 19, 2019, in a 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court held that immigrants who are illegally present in the United States that have certain criminal records can be held without bail while awaiting immigration proceedings, even if ICE didn’t immediately detain them upon release from any federal, state, or local prison. In short, the decision upholds ICE detention without bail for serious crimes. Here is a link to the decision.
