ICE Deputy Director statement on Sessions v. Dimaya

“I am disappointed by the Supreme Court’s decision today in Sessions v. Dimaya. As a law enforcement agency, ICE will certainly abide by this decision; however, it will have an adverse impact on our ability to establish that aliens convicted of certain violent crimes — such as sexual offenses, kidnapping, and burglary — are removable from the United States and ineligible for certain immigration benefits. It is yet another example of the need for Congress to urgently close the loopholes that allow criminal aliens to avoid removal and remain in the United States.”

— Deputy Director Tom Homan
