The Supreme Court agreed to take up the government’s appeal of a ruling that allowed undocumented immigrants to seek release on bond after six months in custody while challenging their deportations. In April 2020, the Ninth Circuit ruled that bond hearings were required for immigrants who had been arrested after entering the U.S. and who credibly claimed that they would face persecution or torture. Lawyers say the ruling could apply to thousands in ICE custody. However, DHS filed an appeal claiming that the six-month hearings could encourage fleeing after release. Although the appeal was filed by the Trump administration, the Biden administration has not withdrawn the suit and will argue the case next year.
