Supreme Court Immigration Case
The Supreme Court agreed Monday to clarify the rights of longtime illegal immigrants to seek permission to stay in the United States.
Justices will decide if a provision in a 1996 federal law that tightened restrictions on illegal immigrants applies to people who were already in America when the law took effect.
The law says that once someone illegally re-enters the United States after being deported, they have limited options to become legal residents...
The court's decision will affect many people _ perhaps hundreds of thousands of immigrants, Washington lawyer David Gossett told the justices.
