And Neil Gorsuch - deliver blow to Trump's deportation law

President Donald Trump's appointee to the court, Neil Gorsuch, sided with four liberal justices in the case.

The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled 5 to 4 that a law subjecting immigrations to deportation for "crimes of violence" is unconstitutionally vague and can not be enforced.

Justice Elena Kagan wrote that the 20015 decision "tells us how to resolve this case".

Dimaya, who had been convicted of burglary in California, challenged his deportation on the grounds that his offense was not severe enough to be considered a violent crime. While conservatives may be frustrated by Gorsuch's vote, the court supposedly used the late conservative Justice Antonin Scalia's reasoning in their opinion.

Federal immigration officials will still be allowed to deport individuals who commit clearly violent crimes such as rape, sexual abuse of a minor, or murder, however. Most of those focus on ousting illegal immigrants who never had permission to be in the USA, while Tuesday's case deals with legal permanent residents who committed crimes while here, and whether those are serious enough to deserve automatic deportation.

The Supreme Court agreed with the 9th circuit.

Diyama appealed the removal order to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, arguing the section of the immigration law the government relied on to order him deported was unconstitutionally vague and therefore violated his due process rights.

After Justice Gorsuch joined the court, the justices heard the case re-argued.
