ACLU Comment on Supreme Court Muñoz Ruling

WASHINGTON — In a 6-3 ruling in State Department v. Muñoz, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled against a U.S. citizen who said her constitutional rights were violated by the federal government when it denied a visa to her Salvadoran husband.

The American Civil Liberties Union filed an amicus brief in this case, and Daniel Galindo, senior staff attorney with the ACLU’s Immigrants’ Rights Project, had the following reaction:

“The Supreme Court says a U.S. citizen has no protected interest in living with her noncitizen spouse in her own country. We strongly disagree. At a minimum, she should be entitled to a fair process.”

This case is part of the ACLU’s Joan and Irwin Jacobs Supreme Court Docket.
