Holding: The Board of Immigration Appeals has interpreted the Child Status Protection Act as providing a remedy only to “aged-out” non-citizens – that is, those who turned twenty-one while their visa application is pending – who qualified or could have qualified as principal beneficiaries of a visa petition, rather than only as derivative beneficiaries piggy-backing on a parent. That is a permissible construction of the statute.
Judgment: Reversed and remanded on June 9, 2014. Chief Justice Roberts filed an opinion concurring in the judgement, in which Justice Scalia joined. Justice Alito filed a dissenting opinion. Justice Sotomayor filed a dissenting opinion, which Justice Breyer joined, and in which Justice Thomas joined except as to footnote 3.
