Supreme Court to Hear Important Immigration Case

Written by 

It’s early October and that means it’s time for the Supreme Court to begin hearing oral arguments in cases it will decide this term. One such case was placed on the docket according to an order issued by the court in September. Carlos Martinez Gutierrez was nabbed trying to smuggle three Mexican children into California. The merits of this case will now be considered by the highest court in the land.

On September 27, the court granted certiorari in the case of Attorney General Eric Holder v. Carlos Gutierrez.  At the center of the case are several issues of vital importance for children of illegal immigrants.
