On February 26, 2014, MALDEF asked the Supreme Court to review the case of Keller v. City of Fremont, which IRLI successfully defended before the Eighth Circuit last year. In its Peitition, MALDEF argues that the Supreme Court should review Fremont, in part, because it is in conflict with the case of Villas at Parkside v City of Farmers Branch. However, MALDEF previously argued against the Supreme Court reviewing the Farmers Branch case, which presumably, based on MALDEF's position, would have answered any concerns MALDEF has in Fremont.
Frederick County, Frederick County Sheriff Jenkins, and two deputies have asked the Supreme Court to review a Fourth Circuit opinion which held that state officers may not detain an alien pursuant to an immigration warrant.
The Immigration Reform Law Institute filed a friend of the court brief in the United States Supreme Court urging the court to review a Fifth Circuit decision invalidating a Farmers Branch, Texas ordinance that requires adult renters to obtain a rental license. The Ordinance requires the city to verify the immigration status of all non-citizens issued rental licenses, and the city housing inspector must order landlords to terminate rental agreements with non-citizens who the federal government confirms are not lawfully present the United States.
