Here is a link to the Syllybus for that case:

Its a long read, and I have not read it as of yet....hopefully others have / will and can help explain what it means for inmates and/or current defendants.

Still reading this decision. Then I get to discuss with the group I work with. I hope there is something in this decision I am missing so far.

The bottom line is that the SCOTUS has ruled that the crime of burglary (in and of itself) is NOT a violent felony.

This could be good news to those of us in states that are suffering from similar provisions that have us labeled as violent felons due to prior burglary convictions on our record, which make it harder to restore our rights.

Time will tell, but I'm cautiously optimistic that this decision will trickle down to state courts...

SESSIONS, v. DIMAYA No. 15–1498.
after a little discussion on the subject of the above decision a few of my colleagues suggested that this article will sums it up Supreme Court case shows how vague immigration law invites arbitrary decisions
Here is what the last two paragraphs say "
In the short-term, Dimaya will probably have little discernible effect. Many of the crimes that trigger removal as crimes-of-violence are specifically referenced elsewhere in the INA and will continue to result in deportations. But it clearly represents the creeping erosion of the distinction between civil and criminal proceedings. The notion that removing foreign trespassers, and ungrateful guests, from the United States is somehow punitive is absurd on its face.
Such claims flip the script, implying that the U.S. government’s primary responsibility in the immigration arena is protecting foreigners’ dubious claims to rights that they do not, in fact, possess, rather than fulfilling its first duty, which is protecting American citizens.

Looks like there needs to be more reform as far a immigration and the removal of those who violate the law and are in this country illegally. Good luck with that.
