The US Supreme Court ruled against immigrants seeking to challenge administrative decisions in federal court, in a case that could make the difference between someone staying in the US or being deported.

In a 5-4 ruling on Monday authored by Justice Amy Coney Barrett, the justices said a law baring courts from considering relief left up to the discretion of immigration officials applies to factual disputes as to whether someone is eligible to avoid deportation.

Justice Neil Gorsuch parted ways with his Republican-appointed colleagues to join the liberal bloc in dissent.
