‘Judges for the #Resistance’

At Politico, I wrote today about the judiciary’s activism against Trump on immigration:

There is a lawlessness rampant in the land, but it isn’t emanating from the Trump administration.

The source is the federal judges who are making a mockery of their profession by twisting the law to block the Trump administration’s immigration priorities.

If the judges get their way, there will, in effect, be two sets of law in America — one for President Donald Trump and one for everyone else.

In this dispensation, other presidents — especially Democratic presidents — get a pen and a phone. They get to exercise the full panoply of sweeping powers of the imperial presidency. Trump, on the other hand, gets a judicial veto — even when he is simply trying to undo the unilateral moves of his predecessor.
