SUPREME SURPRISE: Justice Gorsuch BREAKS with Trump On Immigration

Supreme Court agrees deportation provision of immigration law is too vague

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Tuesday that an immigration statute requiring the deportation of noncitizens who commit felonies is unlawfully vague in a decision that could limit the Trump administration's ability to step up the removal of immigrants with criminal records.

Also, given President Trump signed the CLOUD Act, the court also officially vacated the major US v. Microsoft case dealing with whether email stored in servers overseas could be compelled to be turned over to law enforcement.

Gorsuch, in one of his first major breaks with fellow conservatives, joined the court's left-leaning four justices in upending that part of immigration law.

Justice Elena Kagan praised the ruling in her official opinion on the case, saying a conviction of a loosely-defined "violent crime" would result in the "virtual certainty" of deportation. The appeals court based its ruling on a 2015 Supreme Court decision that struck down a similarly worded part of another federal law that imposes longer prison sentences on repeat criminals.

The 5-4 ruling handed the Trump administration a loss on a signature issue. And it comes amid an ongoing focus on immigration by Trump.

Tuesday's decision involves James Dimaya, a native of the Philippines who came to the United States legally as a 13-year-old in 1992. In 2007 and 2009, he pleaded no contest to charges of residential burglary in California.

Judge rejects Trump's bid to block access to Cohen materials
Wood is already displeased with Cohen's conduct, expressing frustration with his decision not to even show up at court on Friday. Cohen's lawyers requested both a temporary restraining order and a preliminary injunction against the United States government.

The federal government appealed to the Supreme Court, arguing that the U.S. Congress had reasonably identified a category of crimes that carry the risk of violence, and suggested that the justices should defer to the immigration authorities.

The case was initially argued in January of 2017 by a court that was short a member because the late Justice Antonin Scalia's seat had not yet been filled.

Gorsuch joined the four liberal Supreme Court Justices in striking down the proposed guidelines; surprising political pundits and conservative lawmakers.

Deadlocked 4-4, the justices scheduled a new round of arguments once Gorsuch joined the court.

The case, Sessions v. Dimaya, focused on a Filipino with permanent USA residency who had been convicted of burglary.
