"President Trump and top White House officials are privately considering a controversial strategy to act without legal authority to enact new federal policies -- starting with immigration," report Alayna Treene and Stef W. Kight. "The White House thinking is being heavily influenced by John Yoo, the lawyer who wrote the Bush administration's justification for waterboarding after 9/11."

"Yoo detailed the theory in a National Review article, spotted atop Trump's desk in the Oval Office, which argues that the Supreme Court's 5-4 DACA ruling last month "makes it easy for presidents to violate the law."

"The fact that John Yoo is employed and free to opine on legal matters is an example of the culture of impunity in the United States," says prisoner defense counsel Alka Pradhan
