Supreme Court Will Not Hear Immigration Case
SCOTUS has refused to hear case that challenges the expedited removal of undocumented immigrants.
On Monday, the Supreme Court left in place a lower court opinion rejecting claims by undocumented Central American women and children seeking asylum. The defendants were apprehended immediately after arriving in the country. The problem is, they did so without authorization. As such, they were placed for expedited removal from the United States and back to their homes. The status makes it difficult for asylum seekers to obtain a court hearing before being deported.
