Detained immigrants are not entitled to bond hearings, Supreme Court rules

[Excerpt]
The American Civil Liberties Union, which brought the case on behalf of the immigrants, had previously said that about 34,000 immigrants are being detained on any given day in the United States, and 90 percent of immigrants’ cases are resolved within six months. But some cases take much longer.

In the case before the justices, Mexican immigrant Alejandro Rodriguez was detained for more than three years without a bond hearing. He was fighting deportation after being convicted of misdemeanor drug possession and joyriding, and was ultimately released and allowed to stay in the United States.

The case is Jennings v. Rodriguez, 15-1204.https://www.pbs.org/newshour/nation/sup ... nd-hearing
