The Supreme Court, in a 5-4 ruling on Tuesday in Sessions v. Dimaya, declared a provision of immigration law so vague as to be unconstitutional. Trump-appointed Justice Neil Gorsuch joined the Supreme Court liberals in issuing the ruling.

Phones are ringing off the hook at law offices serving immigrants with shaky status. Some of Trump’s promises, such as the border wall, would require a good deal of time and money to implement as well as possibly requiring approval from Congress.

11.1 million, according to the most recent estimate. Trump has indicated that even undocumented immigrants with longstanding ties to the U.S. would be forced out if he becomes president ― if not by mass deportation, then by policies that would make it more difficult for them to stay. But Trump’s unlikely to believe estimates on the undocumented immigrant population anyway. He has repeatedly claimed that the size of the undocumented population is unknown, even though multiple sources have estimated it’s around 11 million people.
