Another immigration law issue heard by the U.S. Supreme Court

It is difficult to read the news here in New Orleans or anywhere else without seeing stories about the current plights of numerous non-U.S. citizens across the country. Some of those stories involve court battles regarding certain immigration law issues, including one on which the U.S. Supreme Court recently heard oral arguments. The president's travel ban was the subject, and the high court will reportedly issue its opinion on the case in June.

Vague part of immigration law ruled unconstitutional by SCOTUS

It is the job of the United States Supreme Court to interpret the laws of the land. In doing so, the justices are also responsible for determining whether a particular law violates the U.S. Constitution. Recently, the court ruled that a portion of an immigration law relied upon to deport certain immigrants was not specific enough to meet the requirements of the Constitution. This ruling could potentially affect many individuals across the country, including some here in New Orleans.
