Supreme Court upholds administration in expedited deportation of immigrants

Supreme Court sides with Trump administration in deportation case

The judges found that the restriction on judicial review of deportation decisions did not violate the Constitution

The U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday ruled in support of the administration’s right to quickly deport illegal immigrants with limited judicial scrutiny.

By seven votes to two, the court upheld the administration’s appeal against the lower court ruling that the Sri Lankan immigrant, Vijayakumar Turaissigiam, had the right to apply to court to review his asylum application..

The ruling, written by Judge Samuel Alito, states that the restriction on judicial review of his deportation case does not violate key constitutional provisions on personal freedom. Two of the four Liberal judges, Stephen Breuer and Ruth Bader-Ginsburg, supported the position of the five Conservative judges.

In 2019, the San Francisco Court of Appeals ruled that, in accordance with a constitutional provision allowing for challenging detention decisions, courts should be able to review Turaissigiam’s case..

The administration insisted that immigrants trying to enter the country did not have constitutional rights, and the Constitution did not historically require access to the kind of judicial review that Turaissigiam sought..
