In less than two weeks, the Supreme Court has denied two different decisions that would protect immigrants. This came to a surprise since the court is divided almost evenly between liberals and conservatives. The first, is that any person who is deported back to their country and reenters illegally can be of felony illegal entry unless they are able to meet certain requirements. Second, the Supreme Court rejected a rule that would protect asylum seekers challenging their deportation orders.
This puts many individuals in a vulnerable position. In the future people remain hopeful these decisions are overruled and reconsidered for the sake of immigrants who are truly seeking asylum in the United States.
