Supreme Court Rules Against Illegal Aliens in Deportation Notice Case


The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 against three illegal aliens contesting their deportation orders, claiming they did not receive proper notice of their removal hearings in federal immigration court.

Illegal aliens Esmelis Campos-Chaves, Varinder Singh, and Raul Daniel Mendez-ColĂ­n were ordered deported in absentia after failing to appear before federal immigration judges. The Department of Justice (DOJ) had sent initial Notices to Appear (NTA) in immigration court that did not specify the time and place of the hearings.

Each illegal alien moved to have their deportation orders rescinded, arguing the DOJ did not sufficiently notify them of their hearings. The Fifth Circuit denied one of the petitions, while the Ninth Circuit sided with the other two.

On Friday, Justice Samuel Alito wrote for the majority, finding that the DOJ did provide proper notice of the immigration hearings, and thus the illegal aliens cannot seek rescission of their deportation orders.

Alito was joined by Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Thomas, Kavanaugh, and Barrett. Justice Jackson filed a dissenting opinion, joined by Justices Sotomayor, Kagan, and Gorsuch.

The case is Campos-Chaves v. Garland, No. 22-674 in the Supreme Court of the United States.
