On Tuesday, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that an immigration statute requiring the deportation of noncitizens who commit felonies is unlawfully vague.

It's a decision that could limit the Trump administrationโ€™s ability to step up the removal of immigrants with criminal records.

The ruling helps clarify the criminal acts for which legal immigrants may be expelled for.

It comes at a time when Trump seeks to increase deportations of immigrants who have committed crimes.
