SUPREME COURT WEIGHS TRUMP ADMINISTRATION’S POWER TO DETAIN CRIMINAL IMMIGRANTS
- The Supreme Court is weighing the federal government’s power to detain migrants after they serve prison sentences.
- Federal law allows the government to seize criminal migrants “when the alien is released” from custody.
- Long stretches of time often elapse before the government learns a noncitizen was released from jail, in part due to sanctuary city policies.
