Transcript: Supreme Court Rules In Favor of Bush Officials Over 9/11 Detentions

The Supreme Court ruled that Bush Administration officials would not be held responsible for the wrongful treatment of illegal immigrants following the 9/11 attacks.

Even at the expense of human rights, Six justices concluded that the extreme actions taken by law enforcement during the time were justified.

The case came from mostly Muslims immigrants who were among hundreds that reportedly faced harsh treatment after being jailed.

According to USA Today, this happened mostly because the individuals fit the racial and religious description of the 9/11 attackers.

The case was a win for former Attorney General John Ashcroft and FBI director Robert Mueller.

If the justices had ruled against them, they would have personally liable for the actions of law enforcement officials during that time.
