US Supreme Court restricts deportation of immigrant criminals just as Trump looks to increase them

US Supreme Court restricts deportation of immigrant criminals just as Trump looks to increase themThe Supreme Court has ruled to restrict mandatory deportation of immigrants convicted of some crimes, just as President Donald Trump’s administration is looking to increase them. In a 5-4 ruling, the court said the wording of the statute requiring the removal of non-citizens who commit certain felonies was unlawfully vague, a ruling that could limit the Trump administration’s ability to step up the removal of immigrants with criminal records. Mr Trump’s appointee to the court, conservative judge Neil Gorsuch, joined the court’s four liberal justices in siding with convicted California burglar James Garcia Dimaya, a legal immigrant from the Philippines.
