Supreme Court rules against immigrants over visa eligibility

The court was divided 5-4 in deciding that only in limited circumstances does federal immigration law allow for children to retain their place in line after they become adults. People often have to wait for years for approval of their visa applications and the number of visas available is capped each year. The litigation is unconnected to recent reports of unaccompanied children crossing the U.S. border illegally.
