With Trump’s impeachment trial in the Senate looming, even his go-to of sticking it to immigrants when he’s having a bad day proves elusive.

Ari Melber schools Trump on due process and the fact that he doesn’t have the power to pick the other branches of the government.
Trump is demanding the power to deport immigrants without judges or courts, which would be a violation of due process rights.
“When federal judges rule, government officials – up to and including the president – are supposed to obey or risk being held in contempt of court.”
Trump’s order includes the flagrantly unconstitutional detention of perfectly legal immigrants whose only crime is their national origin and religion.
