    Supreme Court to review no-bail policy for immigrants awaiting deportation hearings

    Supreme Court to review no-bail policy for immigrants awaiting deportation hearings

    Published June 21, 2016 The Wall Street Journal

    The Supreme Court on Monday agreed to hear a Justice Department appeal of a 2015 lower-court decision requiring bail hearings for immigrants who have been in detention for at least six months awaiting deportation proceedings.

    However, the American Civil Liberties Union—which won a lower-court ruling requiring bail hearings after six months—said recently disclosed hearing records show a​2003 high-court precedent the Justice Department cited to bolster its case was partly based on government-supplied information that understated the length of immigration detentions.


    It isn’t clear whether a difference in the time frame would have affected the outcome of the 2003 case.

    But critics of the government’s immigration policies say that prehearing detention with no chance for bail becomes less reasonable the longer it lasts.

    The 2003 case, Demore v. Kim, upheld by a 5-4 vote the government’s practice of holding without bail immigrants—even those who are permanent U.S. residents with “green cards”—who became eligible for deportation because they committed a crime.

    The majority opinion in that case stressed the “very limited” length of no-bail detentions at issue, relying on figures showing the average detention in 2001 was 47 days, while the 15% of immigrants who appeal a deportation order were in detention for about 4˝ months. The figures were provided by the Executive Office for Immigration Review, which conducts the hearings.


    The ACLU, which worked on the 2003 case, said the actual average detention time in 2001 was 2˝ half weeks longer. “The real number is 65 days,” said Michael Tan, an ACLU attorney. The group learned of issues with statistics in the earlier case through a Freedom of Information Act request filed during the current litigation.


    Mr. Tan said the government reached the lower number by factoring in categories of aliens that an immigration judge was required to deport—cases that are resolved quickly because there are no issues for the hearing to resolve. Mr. Tan also said the government counted as completed cases that weren’t over but only transferred—with the immigrant still in detention—to another immigration court.


    Justice Department spokesman Patrick Rodenbush said officials were re-examining the numbers provided in the Kim case, but after an initial review, “we feel our information to the court was appropriate.”


    The court will hear the case on bail hearings in its next term, which begins in October.


    The Kim case marks the second time in recent years that a records disclosure suggested the Justice Department provided incorrect information to the Supreme Court regarding immigration practices.

    No papers...no entry...no rights...no hearing!

    "Operation Return to Sender"!!

    All minors apprehended should be handed over into the care and custody of THEIR Embassy for deportation. Let their Country pay the costs and find their parents! NOT U.S. TAXPAYERS

    Illegal aliens are not entitled to bail. They are illegal aliens, in the country in violation of US immigration law, the law requires they be detained and deported, not detained, set free, then hunted down, arrested, detained and then deported.

    It's a simple 2 step process, not a 4 or 5 or 6 or 7 or more step process. Americans are entitled to bail because we're in our own country, illegal aliens are not. As soon as they're released on bail, they're in our country AGAIN in violation of US immigration law, doing the same things our immigration laws forbid them from doing by being in the country illegally.

    NO BAIL FOR ILLEGAL ALIENS. Unless of course they deport themselves back to their own country and await their hearing from there. The federal government can not under any auspices of civil rights or justice release illegal aliens out of jail on bail without the courts committing violations of US immigration law.

    The concept is as ridiculous as someone claiming that Prisoners of War should be "released on bail" awaiting the end of the War or a war crimes trial. It's nuts. Lets see just how stupid or not our courts are.
