Can the deported request asylum? Can immigration judge rulings be reviewed? The Supreme Court will Decide.



-The highest court of justice has two key rulings in its hands. In one, they will decide whether foreigners who have already been deported can seek asylum if the circumstances of their cases have changed significantly. In the other, if the federal courts have jurisdiction to review judgments of the Court of Immigration Appeals.


The highest court of justice in the United States has two cases in its hands involving immigrants who are struggling with not being deported and to be able to remain legally in the United States. 

On one hand, they will decide whether foreigners who have already been deported can apply for asylum again if they allege credible fear and the circumstances of their cases have changed significantly. 

In the other, they will decide whether federal courts have jurisdiction to review judgments issued by the Court of Immigration Appeals.

The decision in both cases will impact in the immediate future hundreds, perhaps thousands of non-citizens, mainly those who have lost asylum cases or were expelled from the border in an expedited manner when they arrived seeking protection from the federal government.
