Cori Alonso-Yoder, a Practitioner-in-Residence in the Immigrant Justice Clinic at American University Washington College of Law, recently published a response to Jennings v. Rodriguez on the George Washington Law Review’s On the Docket scholarly forum.  Jennings, which the U.S. Supreme Court decided on Feb. 27, 2018, disappointed immigrant advocates because it held that immigration statutes do not afford certain detained aliens the right to periodic bond hearings during the course of their detention. However, the Court remanded the case for the lower court to consider whether the statutory provisions denying bond hearings are constitutional. Alonso-Yoder observes that “the unsettled nature of the Jennings decision foreshadows a future in which the courts are likely to wrestle with increased calls to address these issues of detention and enforcement.”
