Sylvain v. Attorney General of the US, 11-3357

Immigration officials do not lose authority to impose mandatory detention under 8 U.S.C. section 1226(c)(1) on deportable aliens who have committed various crimes, if they fail to do so immediately when the alien is released from detention for those crimes, and therefore, the district court's conclusion to the contrary is reversed, and petitioner is subject to mandatory detention.
