Comment: Supremes On Cancellation Eligibility - In a decision penned by Justice Kagan, the Supreme Court concluded that immigrants who entered the U.S. as children may not count their parents' years in the country to satisfy the residency requirements necessary for seeking leniency when later facing deportation. Two Green Card-holding immigrants convicted of crimes argued that time spent living legally in the U.S. and a parent's immigration status and years of residence could be taken into consideration when determining if they meet eligibility requirements to avoid deportation. The Obama administration suggested this would hinder its effort to make deporting immigrants convicted of crimes a high priority and that the general preference for family unity does not trump the law's plain language that an immigrant must personally satisfy the eligibility requirements. The Court, reversing a Ninth Circuit decision, unanimously sided with the Obama administration's argument. Was this decision right or wrong?
