The lead plaintiff in the case is a legal permanent resident, Alejandro Rodriguez, who came to the U.S. as a child and worked as a dental assistant. As a teenager, he was convicted for joyriding, and at 24, he pleaded guilty to misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance.
Rodriguez was detained for three years without the right to appear before a judge to ask for bond.


I can sympathize with the process, but detained for 3 years??!! While our system decided what to do with him?

So this may be our latest version of how to deal with immigrants. Detain them, and let them rot in prison, before sending what's left of them back home. shake

He's looking real sharp in his 1940's fedora. He's got nerves of steel, an iron will, and several other metal-themed attributes. His fur is water tight and he's always up for a fight.

He's a semi-aquatic egg-laying mammal of action. He's a furry little flat-foot who'll never flinch from a fray. He's got more than just mad skills, he's got a beaver tail and a bill.

This is ridiculous and I agree with the dissent that everyone in the US has constitutional protections. Such crap. These kinds of rulings are how you get revolutions.

Hopefully this won't be the final answer:

Quote:
The Supreme Court sent the case the back to the lower court with two questions unresolved. First, whether indefinite detention without a chance for bail is unconstitutional. Second, whether the challenge to that no-bail provision can be brought as a class action, instead of as individual cases.
