Supreme Court Leaves DACA Alone, But Says No Right to Bond Hearing with Lengthy Detention

Share This Post: facebooktwitterLinkedIn

The U.S. Supreme Court has touched on immigration issues twice already this week, providing both good and bad news for non-citizens.

Yesterday, the Court decided not to hear the Trump administration’s appeal of two lower courts’ decisions concerning DACA. The lower courts have blocked the government from ending the DACA program on March 5. USCIS, the agency responsible for reviewing DACA applications and granting benefits under the program, has said it will not accept applications from individuals who have never had DACA before, but they are again accepting renewal applications.

When Trump initially rescinded the executive order creating the DACA program, USCIS would only accept renewal applications for DACA recipients whose deferred action and employment documents expired on or before March 5, 2018. Now that the lower courts have temporarily stopped Trump from ending DACA on that day, USCIS is accepting DACA renewal pursuant to the form instructions. The agency is still not accepting applications for advance parole, however.

Following a day of good news for DACA recipients, the Court ruled today that non-citizens detained pending deportation do not have a right to a bond hearing every six months, overturning a decision by the 9th Circuit requiring hearings that frequently. The initial case was brought by an immigrant from Mexico who had been living in the U.S. since childhood but who was detained for three years without a hearing after being placed in removal proceedings. The 9th Circuit had held that the government must provide bond hearings after an individual had been detained six months, and every six months after that. The case ended up in the Supreme Court after the Obama administration appealed the 9th Circuit ruling.

The conservative justices said the immigration laws do not limit the length of detention, but the liberal justices dissented, arguing that everyone has a right to liberty under the Declaration of Independence. This case does not affect the procedure in place for initial bond hearings, and the government stated that the later bond hearings can be permitted in certain circumstances.

Corte Suprema Deja DACA Solo, Pero Dice No Derecho a Audiencia De Fianza con Detención Larga

La Corte Suprema ha tocado en temas de inmigración ya dos veces esta semana, proporcionando buenas y malas noticias para no ciudadanos.

Ayer, el Tribunal no decidió escuchar la apelación de la administración de Trump de DACA decisiones de dos tribunales. Los tribunales han bloqueado el gobierno acabar con el programa DACA el 5 de marzo. USCIS, el organismo encargado de revisar que las solicitudes de DACA y concesión de beneficios bajo el programa, ha dicho no aceptará solicitudes de personas que nunca han tenido DACA antes, pero otra vez están aceptando solicitudes de renovación.

Cuando Trump inicialmente rescindió la orden ejecutiva creando el programa DACA, USCIS sólo se aceptan solicitudes de renovación para beneficiarios DACA cuyos documentos empleo y acción diferidas vencida antes del 05 de marzo de 2018. Ahora que los tribunales inferiores han dejado temporalmente de Trump de terminar DACA ese día, USCIS acepta renovación DACA con arreglo a las instrucciones del formulario. La agencia todavía no acepta solicitudes de libertad condicional anticipada, sin embargo.

Después de un día de buenas noticias para beneficiarios DACA, la Corte dictaminó hoy que los no ciudadanos detenidos en espera de deportación no tienen derecho a una audición de fianza cada seis meses, volcando una decisión por el Circuito 9 que requieren las audiencias que con frecuencia. El caso inicial fue traído por un inmigrante de México que había estado viviendo en los Estados Unidos desde la infancia, pero que fue detenido durante tres años sin una audiencia después de estar en proceso de deportación. El circuito 9 había sostenido que el gobierno debe proporcionar audiencias de fianza después de que un individuo ha sido detenido seis meses y cada seis meses después de eso. El caso terminó en la Corte Suprema después de la administración de Obama apeló el fallo de Circuito 9.

Los jueces conservadores dijeron que las leyes de inmigración no limitan la duración de la detención, pero los magistrados liberales discrepaban, argumentando que toda persona tiene derecho a libertad bajo la declaración de independencia. Este caso no afecta el procedimiento en el lugar para las audiencias de fianza inicial, y el gobierno dijo que las audiencias de fianza más adelante pueden ser permitidas en determinadas circunstancias.
