Holding that administrative exhaustion was not required for judicial review of constitutional challenges to bond hearing procedures and that the class's claims concerning the burden of proof at bond hearings and the failure to consider alternatives to detention and ability to pay were not barred by 8 U.S.C. § 1226(e). The Court reversed the district court's grant of class-wide injunctive relief, holding that 8 U.S.C. § 1252(f)(1) limited its jurisdiction to "enjoin or restrain" the immigration laws on a class-wide basis. Finally, the Court determined that current bond procedures, which place the burden on the noncitizen and do not require consideration of alternatives to detention or ability to pay, do not violate the Due Process Clause. Judge Urbanski dissented.
