Supreme Court - Immigration NPR's Barbara Bradley reports that a Supreme Court ruling today gives some legal immigrants access to the courts to fight deportation. The immigrants involved are non-citizens with legal residency who agreed to a plea bargain in a criminal case years ago. They're now threatened with deportation. A 1996 law required non-citizens to be deported for some crimes and cuts them off from federal court review of the deportation orders. The high court's ruling today strikes down that law.
