The Supreme Court ruled Monday that migrants held for deportation have no right to ask for their release on bail, regardless of how long they are being held.
The judges ruled 9-0 that immigration law requires detention of non-citizens who have returned to the US illegally after being deported.
The court reversed judgments of the 9th Circuit Court in San Francisco and the 3rd Circuit Court in Philadelphia.
These appeals courts relied on a 2001 High Court ruling that the Constitution does not normally allow the government to detain migrants for more than six months without giving them a hearing and an opportunity to seek bail.
The ruling is the third in recent years that bail hearings for detained immigrants have been denied.
