The United States Supreme court has taken on a dispute over the detention of immigrants.

The case has an added significance because of the Trump administration’s decision to intensify immigration enforcement.

This means growing numbers of people are expected to land in detention and await deportation.

The case calls into question whether people who were convicted of a criminal offense and were subject to deportation can go free in certain instances after serving their prison terms.
