Supreme Court Restricts Federal Deportation

The US Supreme Court has ruled that a federal provision for deporting foreigners in unconstitutional.

The nation's top court ruled 5-to-4 against the federal law that allows authorities to deport foreigners convicted of a 'crime of violence.'

Justice Neil Gorsuch joined his liberal colleagues by ruling against a specific clause within the Immigration and Nationality Act.

According to Gorsuch, the phrase 'crime of violence' is too vague, adding that the Constitution demands more of an explanation.

Gorsuch stated that the invalidated provision left judges to independently use their intuition, leaving people to their fates.
