US Supreme Court restricts deportation of immigrant criminals just as Trump looks to increase them

US Supreme Court restricts deportation of immigrant criminals just as Trump looks to increase themThe Supreme Court has ruled to restrict mandatory deportation of immigrants convicted of some crimes, just as President Donald Trump’s administration is looking to increase them. In a 5-4 ruling, the court said the wording of the statute requiring the removal of non-citizens who commit certain felonies was unlawfully vague, a ruling that could limit the Trump administration’s ability to step up the removal of immigrants with criminal records. Mr Trump’s appointee to the court, conservative judge Neil Gorsuch, joined the court’s four liberal justices in siding with convicted California burglar James Garcia Dimaya, a legal immigrant from the Philippines.

U.S. Supreme Court justices skeptical of American Express merchant fees

U.S. Supreme Court justices skeptical of American Express merchant feesLiberal U.S. Supreme Court justices on Monday sharply questioned American Express over restrictions the company places on merchants forbidding them from encouraging customers to use rival credit cards with lower fees, which several states and the Trump administration claim violate federal antitrust law. The high court heard about an hour of arguments in an appeal by the states, led by Ohio, of a 2016 ruling by lower court in New York that cleared American Express of stifling competition through its so-called anti-steering provisions in contracts with merchants. While liberal justices suggested the provisions could harm consumers, the court has a 5-4 conservative majority.
