To borrow a quote from History.

"Well, when the President does it, that means that it is not illegal."

So just because someone/thing sings off on something, doesn't automatically make it legal.
If the orders came from the Federation Council, it means a majority of members likely voted to move the Ba'ku.
So the Federation council just decided that Starfleet should ignore General Order Number One (aka the Prime Directive) you know the one that says don't interfer with other species. Guess what moving them is interferring.
