U.S. Supreme Court Delivers Massive Ruling On Immigrants

The U.S. Supreme Court gave thou­sands of long-term immi­grants seek­ing to avoid depor­ta­tion in a rul­ing that fault­ed the fed­er­al gov­ern­ment for improp­er­ly noti­fy­ing a man who came to the Unit­ed States ille­gal­ly from Guatemala to appear for a removal hearing.

The jus­tices, in a 6–3 deci­sion that divid­ed the high court’s con­ser­v­a­tive bloc, over­turned a low­er court’s deci­sion that had pre­vent­ed Agus­to Niz-Chavez from pur­su­ing his request to can­cel the attempt­ed expul­sion based on the length of time he had lived in the Unit­ed States.

He lives in Michi­gan with his fam­i­ly after enter­ing the Unit­ed States ille­gal­ly in 2005.

The jus­tices decid­ed that fed­er­al immi­gra­tion law requires author­i­ties to include all rel­e­vant details for a notice to appear for a hear­ing in one doc­u­ment rather than send­ing the infor­ma­tion across mul­ti­ple documents.

While a tech­ni­cal issue, the rul­ing could affect hun­dreds of thou­sands of immi­gra­tion cases.

“In this case, the law’s terms ensure that, when the fed­er­al gov­ern­ment seeks a pro­ce­dur­al advan­tage against an indi­vid­ual, it will at least sup­ply him with a sin­gle and rea­son­ably com­pre­hen­sive state­ment of the nature of the pro­ceed­ings against him,” con­ser­v­a­tive Jus­tice Neil Gor­such wrote in the ruling.
