We've lost a valiant battle in Nielsen v. Preap today. Two terms in a row now, #SCOTUS has ruled in favor of the most extreme interpretation of the mandatory immigration detention statute - which results in detention without any individualized hearing on flight risk or danger.
So much for abiding by the plain words Congress used.

The vote is 5-4, with Justice Alito writing the majority opinion. Justice Breyer dissents with RBG, Sotomayor, and Kagan.

Needless to say, SGB gets it right.
We brought the two cases along with @NWIRP @aaaj_alc @ACLU_NorCal @ACLU_WA and the law firms of Gibbs Houston Pauw, Sunbird Law PLLC, and Keker, Van Nest & Peters LLP on behalf of so many courageous people fighting for due process and the right to a hearing.
We will never give up fighting against the senseless mass incarceration without a hearing.
