The Supreme Court heard oral argument in Nielsen v. Preap, an immigration law case that challenges a federal provision requiring mandatory and immediate detention of non-citizens who have been convicted of a crime after they have served their sentences. The plaintiffs, Mr. Mony Preap and others represented by the ACLU, were arrested and detained by immigration officers years after already serving time for their crimes. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in favor of the group. The Trump administration disagreed with the ruling, arguing it would harm it efforts to deport convicted aliens quickly.

The Court ruled 5-4 on March 19, 2019, that the Homeland Security Department can detain certain non-citizens with a criminal history after they have served their sentences and been released for several years. close
