That's just silly.

"And by virtue of this act, African-Americans may not vote and Jews must show up to concentration camps in Montana and Decisions by the Secretary in support of this and pursuant to the authority of this Act are non-reviewable and committed to agency discretion, and may not be reviewed by any court of law or any administrative agency."

Come on. If fundamental rights are implicated, the Secretary is going to find himself in federal court.
