The February 3 order of James Robart, a Seattle federal district court judge, temporarily blocking key parts of Donald Trump's January 27 Muslim ban executive order has certainly created quite a Furor with America's new Leader in the White House.

In response, Trump took to Twitter to blast the "so called judge", thereby recalling Trump's assault against another federal judge, Gonzalo Curiel, because of his "Mexican heritage" during the presidential campaign.

Could Trump's intemperate assault against the independence of the judiciary and the Constitutional separation of powers in the form of his attack on Judge Robart, whom Trump called a "so-called judge", also be part of a larger agenda involving a one-man presidential takeover of the entire immigration system, or at least a large part of it, followed by shutting down most or all of that system?

If one takes a closer look at Trump's Muslim ban order, it will be become apparent that this possibility is by no means as far fetched as it might seem to be at first glance

Howeeve, the fact that Trump's order begins, but does not necessarily end, with banning an estimated nearly 200 million people from seven Muslim countries, does not mean that the order is not anti-Muslim.

Muslims may only be the first step toward one-man total control of immigration. but they are still being singled out and targeted in connection with that first step.

80 years ago, another chief executive in another country issued the Nuremberg Laws as a first step toward taking total control of his society. But the fact that those decrees also had a larger purpose did not in any way lessen their impact on their primary target, the Jews.

What exactly is this larger goal implicit in Trump's January 27 order which I am referring to, and what are the legal arguments that could be made in support of that goal? How valid are those arguments? I will take a closer look at these questions in my next comment
