Supreme Court Decision May Make Some Eligible for Relief From Deportation

6/29/18 In an 8-1 decision on June 21, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of an individual previously prevented from applying for a type of relief from deportation known as cancellation of removal. In Pereira v. Sessions, the Court rejected the government’s practice of placing non-citizens in immigration proceedings based on a charging document that does not advise of the time and place of a removal hearing.
