8. Reno v. Flores (1993): The Court upheld an Immigration and Naturalization Service policy regarding the detention of unaccompanied minor immigrants, allowing the government to detain them until they could be released to their parents or guardians.


9. Zadvydas v. Davis (2001): This decision held that the government could not detain non-citizens indefinitely if their deportation is unlikely in the foreseeable future, providing more rights to long-term detainees.


10. Arizona v. United States (2012): The Supreme Court struck down several provisions of Arizona's strict immigration enforcement law, S.B. 1070, affirming the federal government's primary role in immigration enforcement.
