Two cases argued before the Supreme Court in January touched on the ongoing debate over people who are in the United States illegally.
The first case has roots in the 9/11 attacks. It deals with the grievances of those held in detention after the attacks, including Pakistani native Ahmer Iqbal Abbasi. He came to the United States illegally and managed to get a job driving a New York City taxi.
