The United States Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that immigrants, even those with permanent legal status and asylum seekers, are not entitled to regular hearings.

It is a profound loss for these immigrants who appeal to indefinite government arrests. Many are held for a long time – an average of 13 months – after being picked up for such small things as joyrids. Some are held even longer.

The Fall, Jennings v. Rodriguez has consequences for legal residents who want to deport the government because they have dedicated offenders and asylum seekers waiting for a court date after they have reported to the border. Immigrant agents claim that many of these immigrants have the right to be bail-free until their case is heard.

But the court wrote in its 5-3 statement on Tuesday: "Immigration officials are authorized to arrest certain foreigners during the immigration process while determining whether these foreigners can legally be present in the country."
