U.S. top court to set guidelines for Trump treatment of non-citizens

By Lawrence Hurley | WASHINGTON
The U.S. Supreme Court will decide three cases in coming months that could help or hinder President Donald Trump's efforts to ramp up border security and accelerate deportations of those in the country illegally.

The three cases, which reached the court before Democratic President Barack Obama left office, all deal broadly with the degree to which non-citizens can assert rights under the U.S. Constitution. They come at a time when the court is one justice short and divided along ideological lines, with four conservatives and four liberals.

The justices will issue rulings before the end of June against the backdrop of high-profile litigation challenging the lawfulness of Trump's controversial travel ban on people traveling from seven predominantly Muslim countries.

The most pertinent of the three cases in terms of Republican Trump administration priorities involves whether immigrants in custody for deportation proceedings have the right to a hearing to request their release when their cases are not promptly adjudicated.

1. Does anyone really think 45 will wait until June?

Or follow what he has called in the past "suggestions" from the SCOTUS?
By June he will either be involved in impeachment hearings or his brown shirts will be knocking down doors to drag people off to camps. Maybe both.
