We’ve just tested the country’s willingness to capitulate to a fascist regime.

[We must focus] more on whether the system of checks and balances we have in place is working. 

It is a much bigger deal that the DHS felt they could ignore a federal court than that Trump signed an EO blocking green card holders in the first place. 

It is a much bigger deal that Trump removed a permanent military presence from the NSC than that he issued a temporary stay on immigration. 

The immigration ban may be more viscerally upsetting, but the other moves are potentially far more dangerous.
