US High Court allows deportation of Caribbean immigrants, others
2013-02-24 13:14:19 | (0 Comments)
The US Supreme Court will not block the deportation of thousands of Caribbean and other immigrants who pleaded guilty to serious crimes two years ago.
The immigrants had not been warned by their lawyers that they would be targeted for deportation.
The law calls for mandatory deportation for Caribbean and other immigrants, including lawful permanent residents, who have an “aggravated felony” on their record.
In a 7-2 decision, the justices refused to apply the ruling retroactively to cases of immigrants who had unintentionally pleaded guilty before 2010.
