The Supreme Court today ruled 5-4 in favor of the Trump administration’s policy of detaining immigrants for an indefinite period of time who are waiting to be deported from the United States. In some cases many of these immigrants are held in immigration custody for several years even after they have fully served any criminal sentence they may have previously received. In New Jersey ICE has the ability to incarcerate more than 2,000 immigrants in jails located in Essex, Hudson and Bergen counties. This decision will likely impact hundreds of those detainees.
