Supreme Court sides with transgender woman from Guatemala in asylum dispute

WashingtonCNN — The Supreme Court cleared the way for a transgender woman from Guatemala to appeal her deportation from the United States in federal court. The woman argues that she should not have been deported back to her home country because she will face sexual discrimination and assault. She lost her appeal before an immigration court. The majority opinion by Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson, will make it easier for non-citizens to challenge their removal orders in federal court even if they did not fully challenge their removal before immigration authorities. It comes as immigration courts are already experiencing long delays and backlogs. The case does not impact the impending end of Title 42 at 11:59 p.m. ET on Thursday.
