The Supreme Court has sided with the Trump administration by ruling in a 5-4 vote to allow the detention of people who are facing deportation because of crimes that they have committed. Said crimes include robbery, sexual abuse, drug-related and gun-related incidences.

What the ruling specifically focused on was residents that are not citizens who served a criminal sentence, are released but then get arrested again by federal immigration agents.

However, the justices were split in how they voted, and the majority also saw the issue from different perspectives.
