Here's a link for an important law fact: http://www.constitution.org/uslaw/16amjur2nd.htm
This appears to be actual U.S. law, which informs public servants of their duty to arrest any other public servant who commits an unlawful act, such as violating anyone's rights.Legal responsibility to violations against corrupt legislators.

16 Am Jur 2d, Sec 177 late 2d, Sec 256:
The general misconception is that any statute passed by legislators bearing the appearance of law constitutes the law of the land. The U.S. Constitution is the supreme law of the land, and any statute, to be valid, must be In agreement. It is impossible for both the Constitution and a law violating it to be valid; one must prevail. This is succinctly stated as follows:
The General rule is that an unconstitutional statute, though having the form and name of law is in reality no law, but is wholly void, and ineffective for any purpose; since unconstitutionality dates from the time of it's enactment and not merely from the date of the decision so branding it. An unconstitutional law, in legal contemplation, is as inoperative as if it had never been passed. Such a statute leaves the question that it purports to settle just as it would be had the statute not been enacted.
Since an unconstitutional law is void, the general principles follow that it imposes no duties, confers no rights, creates no office, bestows no power or authority on anyone, affords no protection, and justifies no acts performed under it.....
A void act cannot be legally consistent with a valid one. An unconstitutional law cannot operate to supersede any existing valid law. Indeed, insofar as a statute runs counter to the fundamental law of the lend, it is superseded thereby.
No one Is bound to obey an unconstitutional law and no courts are bound to enforce it.
Strictly speaking, an unconstitutional statute is not a "law", and should not be called a "law", even if it is sustained by a court, for a finding that a statute or other official act is constitutional does not make it so, or confer any authority to anyone to enforce it.
All citizens and legal residents of the United States, by their presence on the territory of the United States, are subject to the militia duty, the duty of the social compact that creates the society, which requires that each, alone and in concert with others, not only obey the Constitution and constitutional official acts, but help enforce them, if necessary, at the risk of one's life.
Any unconstitutional act of an official will at least be a violation of the oath of that official to execute the duties of his office, and therefore grounds for his removal from office. No official immunity or privileges of rank or position survive the commission of unlawful acts. If it violates the rights of individuals, it is also likely to be a crime, and the militia duty obligates anyone aware of such a violation to investigate it, gather evidence for a prosecution, make an arrest, and if necessary, seek an indictment from a grand jury, and if one is obtained, prosecute the offender in a court of law.

My question is does this still apply today and if so how do we unify to make this a reality?

I am pasting my response from the other discussion thread here because of its relevance.
I stumbled upon this information while investigating S 1867 and it's sister bill passed by the House HR 1540 in May. I can think of 322 members of Congress and 93 Senators that should be arrested for their violation of their oath of office.
I have been scampering like mad to get this information into social groups online who are active in activism, social networking, and the information war. I have been pleading my case to these people for quite some time that these groups need to accept the values of our Constitutional Militia and fellow Patriots.
It does absolutely nothing to sit around online all day sharing links and or protesting without a legal approach and list of demands. We have the evidence to take legal action and if we don't, the premise of divide and conquer will prevail as the ultimate distraction to keep us unaware of how to remove these criminals from office, including at the executive level.
This information needs to be examined by every Constitutional Militia in our Republic. How do we as Patriots put this into motion? I believe that an exorcise of our obligation is absolutely paramount to the survival of this once great nation. If we can present this case unto independent media as well as the masses, we may very well obtain the support of people as a whole to put this into action.
I have been screaming online to the members of various groups that we must unite as a people to do this. It is disheartening to see so many who want change but can't even open their minds to the reality we face. The usurpation of our Government is the reality at hand. They have desecrated Our Republic and these so called elected officials are guilty of treason!
Why is it that so many people are screaming and ranting about themselves being the 99% when none of them understand they will actually achieve nothing? Protesting Wall Street is an act in vein when insider trading is rampant in Congress. You can't get corruption out of politics when technocrats of the banking elite have the monopoly over the system.
There is only one solution and granted that solution will lead to war. However, at least it would then become a war against foreign forces controlled by the Oligarchy itself and not with our own brothers and sisters, sons and daughters, mothers and fathers.
We have to cut the strings of the puppet masters. The puppets need to be "confiscated" and convicted for their crimes. It is time to find out who are allies are within Government and within the system itself. If we can do that, we can change the course of history. But we don't have much time.
God help us all, and God Save the Republic!
