What exactly does this mean?

by Tim Condon

“An unconstitutional act is not a law; it confers no rights; it imposes no duties; it affords no protection; it creates no office; it is in legal contemplation as inoperative as though it had never been passed.” Norton v. Shelby County, 118 U.S. 425, 426 (1886). That’s a ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court.

We need to keep it in mind. Now more than ever.
