Immigrants can be held by U.S. immigration officials indefinitely without receiving bond hearings, even if they have permanent legal status or are seeking asylum, the Supreme Court ruled Tuesday.

In a 5-3 ruling Tuesday, with Justice Elena Kagan recusing, the court ruled that immigrants do not have the right to periodic bond hearings.

The ruling is a defeat for immigration advocates, who argued that immigrants should not be held for more than six months at a time without such a hearing.

  1. I don't think people realize just how huge this ruling is. The Supreme Court ruled, aliens do not have the same Constitutional Rights as citizens. This is a gigantic crack in the left’s drive to destroy America. Best of all, the Supreme Court ruled America is a “Sovereign Nation,” and allowed to control entry. Take some time and let this decision soak in. If aliens do not have a “right” to bail. Then what other “rights” might aliens not have? I believe this is a crack that can be opened.
