On Tuesday the Supreme Court handed the Trump administration a victory in its effort to clamp down on illegal immigration. The 5-4 ruling says that federal immigration authorities can detain immigrants awaiting deportation any time after they have been released from prison on criminal charges.

The high court also ruled that the government maintains broad discretion in determining who represents a danger to the community and in deciding who should be released or detained.

A spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform says this decision means safer streets and safer living conditions for legal residents and citizens.

"Prior to this, there was a lawsuit against the government that said if a criminal alien wasn't picked up immediately after leaving jail, then they could be picked up later down the road for deportation orders so that oftentimes folks would slip between the cracks," says Dave Ray.

"This [ruling] will ensure public safety – and it will ensure that those who commit crimes against Americans are punished for them and [that those who] should be deported are deported," Ray adds.

In the case, a group of mostly green card holders argued that unless they're picked up essentially within a day of being released, they should be entitled to a hearing where they can argue they aren't a danger to the community and aren't like to flee.
