SCOTUS Releases Two Opinions

On Monday, the Supreme Court released its opinion on Patel v. Garland.

Patel v. Garland involved a man from India who has lived in the U.S. for 30 years. The Justice Department found that he was ineligible for deportation relief because he once misrepresented his citizenship on a driver’s license form.

The upshot of the Supreme Court’s ruling: He and similarly situated individuals don’t get to appeal the DOJ’s finding in court.

In a separate opinion, the Court sided with Texas Senator Ted Cruz in his challenge to a campaign finance law.
