Supreme Court Split Over Notice Requirements for Immigration Court

The Supreme Court appeared divided on Monday over what counted as proper notice for the government to give to people facing deportation hearings.

The argument, which lasted nearly two hours, centered on whether undocumented immigrants should be allowed to challenge deportation orders if their initial notice to appear in court failed to list a time and date for the hearing.

Under federal immigration law, government officials must give people notice to appear for a deportation hearing, including where the hearing will be held and when, part of the Constitution’s guarantee of due process.

The court’s decision in this instance is likely to resolve a split among federal appeals courts on how to handle such cases.
