Reverberations from recent mandatory detention case, Rodriguez v. Robbins

I recently wrote  about a 9th Circuit case, Rodriguez v. Robbins, where the Court upheld a preliminary injunction in the Central District of California  holding that after six months of detention a detained alien is entitled to a bond hearing. Today the Central District of California issued a new injunction ordering Immigration and Customs Enforcement to set up bond hearings with immigration judges for aliens detained for more than six months instead of requiring the detained alien to arrange for the hearing. It remains to be seen when this policy will spread throughout the 9th Circuit and even throughout the United States. Posted August 12, 2013.
