On June 25, the Supreme Court ruled that limited judicial scrutiny of the policy of expedited removal is constitutional. The Court further wrote that recent migrants who do not have “established connections” have fewer constitutional protections against deportation, and therefore do not have a right to judicial review in cases of expedited removal. The vote was 7-2 and Justices Sotomayor and Kagan dissented. The ruling has wide implications for both immigrants and asylum seekers who may enter the U.S. outside a port of entry.
