When the United States Ceased To Be a Nation of the Law

From this article:

Donald Trump first attempted to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program in September 2017, a move that would’ve stripped its beneficiaries of work permits and subjected them to deportation. But his administration continually cut corners, failing to explain the basis for its decision and refusing to consider the impact of DACA repeal on immigrants, their communities, and their employers (including the U.S. Army). This June, the Supreme Court ruled that the administration’s actions were “arbitrary and capricious” under federal law and therefore “set aside” DACA repeal.

What does all this mean, not only to DACA recipients, but to all other Americans? Simply that the laws of the United States have come to mean precisely nothing at this point, as anything coming out of the judiciary that stands against the will of the Trump administration simply ignored.

We have become a nation whose laws are strictly enforced against the common American, but mean exactly zero to its president.  I challenge readers look up “authoritarian regime,” and find a single material difference between that concept and the form of government we have before up today.
