    No one would claim that Democratic former US Secretary of Labor (in the Clinton administration) Robert Reich is an objective, non-partisan analyst of current affairs. Having said that, he is an astute political observer and has a well earned reputation for not being afraid to speak out honestly and directly.

    In his latest (October 13) alternet.org column, Reich writes about a conversation with a former Republican Congressman friend (name not given) concerning the friend's views on what Republican leaders are saying about the nation's president, Donald Trump.

    Reich quotes the former GOP Congressman in part as follows:

    "I'm just glad I'm not there anymore. Trump's not just a moron. He's a despicable human being. And he's getting crazier. Paranoid. Unhinged. Everyone knows it."

    http://www.alternet.org/news-amp-pol...licans-know-it

    If this is an accurate description of what leaders in Trump's own party are now saying about him, what does this augur for the future of immigration policy in this administration, not to mention the future of America and the world?

    Stories like this could also explain why Trump is moving toward fascism in America by threatening to "revoke" the free speech rights of NBC and other media which publish negative or unflattering stories about him.

    Robert Reich is far from being the only commentator in America who is now voicing concerns, not only over the president's commitment to democracy and the fundamental values of a free society, but also about Trump's mental health.

    For more on Trump's mental health issues, see also Salon.com's October 11 article about an interview with Dr. Bandy Lee, professor of law and psychiatry at the Yale School of Medicine and editor of the new book:

    The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 27 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President

    The Salon article is available at:

    https://www.salon.com/2017/10/11/tru...iatrists-warn/

    Based on the above and other similar reports, immigrants are not the only people in America (and the world) who may be in danger from the current president of the United States.

    Could Donald Trump's own mental health challenges eventually derail the white Supremacist RAISE Act and the rest his anti-immigrant agenda?

    Any US president, no matter how powerful, needs Congressional friends and allies in order to put through is agenda.

    Latest reports indicate that Trump's constant fighting with his natural supporters in his own party, such as, in the latest example, Senator Bob Corker (R-TN) may be causing the president to run out of friends.

    One report quotes Fox News host Neil Cavuto, a normally friendly commentator, as questioning Trump's own sanity because of his tendency to pick fights with his own national allies. Cavuto warns that Trump may be soon be running out of friends.

    Cavuto also "wonders" whether the president is "sound".

    http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefi...out-of-friends

    If Trump's possible loss of Congressional support due to his alleged mental health problems leads to abandoning his Europeans only immigration policies, such as the RAISE Act, Muslim ban orders and mass arrest and deportation agenda targeting mainly Hispanic, Black and Asian immigrants, that would unquestionably be a good thing.

    But what if Trump's mental health issues, as evidenced by his unrelenting and hostile attacks as candidate and president against Latino, Muslim and other non-white immigrants, led to his bigoted whites-only immigration agenda in the first place?

    Is this not a question that not only immigrants, but more and more Americans, will be asking themselves as time goes on?

    The latest publication dealing with Trump's mental health is a book called:

    The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 27 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President

    The book is due to appear on October 3. Judging from its title, since I haven't yet seen the book, it should be required reading for anyone who wants to understand what is behind the president's white supremacist immigration policies and the danger he poses to America's democracy and the peace (if not the continued existence) of the world as we know it.

    Update, September 24:

    It may be a relief to Latino, Muslim and other non-white immigrants that Trump is evidently taking time off from demonizining and persecuting them in order to pick an insane fight with American citizens, i.e. NFL football players, over the national anthem.

    http://www.politico.com/story/2017/0...43062?lo=ap_c1

    But isn't this another reason to call in the psychiatrists for the president sooner rather than later?

    https://www.aol.com/article/news/201...al-i/22049682/

    My original comment follows:

    As Donald Trump continues with his policies of racial and religious discrimination against minority immigrants by threatening the future of nearly 800,000 mainly Latino DACA recipients and preparing to defend his Muslim ban before the Supreme Court (along with, inter alia, threatening to destroy North Korea - and possibly all of humanity - in his UN speech) concern among mental health professionals about the president's fitness to continue in office is becoming more and more evident.

    As the heartrending stories of drowned children (and at least one police officer) start coming out of Texas, while Hurricane Harvey moves over to Louisiana on the 12th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina in that state, one can only marvel at the utter inhumanity, the sheer disregard for the survival of this planet, in the Trump administration's campaign to erase even the words "climate change" from the government's websites and official documents.

    I am not aware of any reputable scientist who would disregard or deny the connection between global warming and the increasingly severe and dangerous storms that are battering the United States and many other parts of the world.

    But this callous disregard of human life and welfare is matched in the storm of actions against vulnerable and defenseless immigrants that the Trump regime is taking, with its countless human tragedies, split up families, dashed hopes and broken human lives, as America's immigration climate also changes and inundates the hopes and future in America of Latino, Asian, and Muslim immigrants, and all others who don't fit in with the Eurocentric immigration objectives of Trump and his top immigration advisers.

    Mr Trump wants to dismantle DACA because it was instigated under President Obama's watch. For the past six months, Mr. Trump is bullying vulnerable populations wether americans or immigrants.
    He wants to tare off families, destroy the lives of hard working people, because he just wants to destroy before Mr Muller destroys him by the findings of the russian collusion. Divisiveness and chaos are not what America is about! America is/was a safe haven for those who seek refuge, those who ask for justice and receive it. America is about living in tranquility for the common good. When will this nightmare end? Communication and diplomatie are no more.

    According to multiple news reports, "Bannon the Bigot" (my designation) has been fired from the White House by the president.

    http://thehill.com/homenews/administ...stephen-bannon

    In view of the enormous influence that, by all accounts, Bannon has had on Trump's immigration policies, could this mean that we may now have a "kinder', gentler", less racist immigration agenda in the Trump administration; or could it mean that Trump has now gone so far over in the direction of the neo-nazi white supremacists whom he so pointedly refused to single out for condemnation over Charlottesville that even Bannon is too "liberal" for the president on immigration and race relations?

    As Trump himself might say, we will have to see what happens.

    Or, could Bannon's exit, hopefully for everyone who cares about preserving America's tradition of welcoming immigrants of all ethnic backgrounds, religions and skin colors, which has been in place for the past 50 years and which Trump and Bannon have been trying to destroy, be a prelude to Trump's own resignation as president?

    David Rothkopf, a visiting professor at the Columbia University School of International Affairs writes the following in his August 16 Washington Post column in reaction to Donald Trump's appalling, unbelievably disgraceful refusal to pin the blame for the violence in Charlottesville where it belongs - on the white supremacists and neo-nazis who themselves admitted that they were inspired by Trump in organizing the rally which took three innocent lives:

    President Trump must go

    (Four words with every decent-minded American, everyone who cares about racial equality and equal justice for all, must agree with in his or her heart):

    In Rothkopf's words:

    "No one who values the best of what the United States has stood for could watch without feeling revulsion, anger or heartbreak. No one who comes from a past such as mine, which includes similar mobs rising up and ultimately collaborating in the murder of dozens of my family members in Hitler's Europe, could view Trump's performance without a degree of fear as well."

    Appalling and revolting to the conscience of every civilized person in America as Trump's despicable attempts to shield the neo-nazi instigators from blame and shift it onto a nonexistent "alt left" instead, Charlottesville, and Trump's implied support the rally of hate and violence that took place there this past Saturday, are not the main issues.

    The main issue is that America now has a president who, in so many of his speeches and actions as candidate and president, lives, breathes and exudes racist white supremacy from every pore, every fiber of his being.

    Nowhere is this clearer than in his anti-Latino, anti-Muslim, anti-Asian and anti-black immigration policies.

    From anti-immigrant persecution and hatred of non-white minorities launched by the Trump regime, to administration-supported and encouraged neo-nazi violence at Charlottesville, to the end of freedom of speech and the onset of pure fascism in America, the line runs straight and can no longer be ignored.

    Trump's vicious, racially motivated attempts to bar Muslim immigrants from coming to the US because of their religion, his efforts to engage in mass deportation of and build a wall of hatred against Latino immigrants, and his agenda of restricting South and East Asian skilled immigrants by attacking the H-1B program, not to mention his support for the RAISE Act which seeks to close off America to most non-European immigrants in the spirit of his white supremacist Warsaw address, are all part and parcel of the white supremacist agenda which led directly to the violence at Charlottesville, which Trump now blames on the "alt-left", rather than on the neo-nazis who organized the rally as a tribute to Trump's own "leadership" and "inspiration".

    But the Trump-inspired white supremacist bigotry and hatred which was so much in evidence in the violence at Charlottesville is itself only one more step, albeit a big one, on the road that leads to overt fascism in America.

    The Guardian now reports (on August 14) that Trump's Justice Department, led by his loyal (though sometimes abused by Trump himself) henchman, Jeff Sessions, is now trying to force the owner of an anti-Trump website to turn over information about more than a million visitors to the site - in an obvious attempt to intimidate people from even looking at the site.

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...rant-dreamhost

    This attempt not only to prevent people from speaking freely but even from looking to see what other people have said is not democracy - it is fascism, pure and simple.

    While it would be an exaggeration to call Charlottesville America's Kristallnacht, there is an unmistakable parallel between Trump's progression from hatred and persecution of minority immigrants, to violence against American citizens opposed to the neo-nazi movement at Charlottesville, to the fascist attempt to wipe out free speech in the DOJ's action against the Dreamhost website and anyone who viewed the site.

    This parallel is with Adolf Hitler's rise to power in the 1930's, beginning with his attacks on Jews as scapegoats, moving on to violence and repression against all perceived opponents of the regime, and finally the total extinction of freedom for all Germans.

    This is not to say that Trump has genocide or elimination of an entire race of people as his goal as Hitler did with the Jews; clearly Trump does not and has no such objective or wish.

    But the movement from singling out a vulnerable group of people for persecution, as Hitler did with the Jews and as Trump is doing with non-white immigrants, to total dictatorship cannot be ignored.

    Many people may still not believe or be willing to accept the fact that Trump has this as his ultimate goal, but many people also refused to recognize Hitler's real purpose at the beginning either.

    Anyone who wants to gain a true understanding of the real purpose and significance of Donald Trump's anti-immigrant agenda should read The Nation. February 28, 2017:

    A Warning From History: A new biography of Hitler reminds us that there is more than one way to destroy a democracy

    The following comment is not directly concerned with immigration policy, but it does involve the larger question of how long Donald Trump, arguably the most anti-immigrant president America has had in almost almost a century, since the time of Calvin Coolidge and the notorious 1924 "Nordics" only immigration act which he signed, can expect to remain in office as president.

    Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation is closing in on Trump, perhaps slowly, but surely as The Guardian reports on August 5:

    https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...d-trump-russia

    As the Handwriting on the Wall in the Mueller investigations starts to look more and more like the Biblical words: Mene, Mene, Tekel, Upharsin in the Book of Daniel for Donald Trump, his temptation to engage in even wilder and more dangerous saber-rattling with the paranoid North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un,

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...iplomacy-talks

    in order to turn attention away from the Mueller investigations becomes understandably greater.

    The question is whether Trump's understandable wish to do anything possible to turn attention away from Robert Mueller could lead to a confrontation with North Korea that could turn this planet into a nuclear wasteland where no place that anyone would want to immigrate to would any longer exist, and there would be no people left to become immigrants anywhere on earth.

    In my August 5 ilw.com comment on the Trump supported so called RAISE act, which would make drastic cuts in legal immigration categories which used largely by people from non-white areas of the world (namely less skilled employment, refugee programs and Diversity green card), I contend that it is a misnomer to call the bill "Merit-based", and that "Meret-based", as in the word "meretricious" (deriving from the Latin word for "prostitute") would be more appropriate.

    http://blogs.ilw.com/entry.php?10047

    This is because of the utter lack of good faith in the arguments which are being made in support of this bill, which might more aptly be called the RACE Act or the RUSE Act, as I explain in the above comment and a couple of earlier ones I have also posted on ilw.com about the same pernicious bill, which is clearly intended to undo the reforms of the momentous civil rights era 1965 immigration act and take America back to the openly white supremacist, "Nordics only" immigration system of the 1924 law which America's current AG, Jeff Sessions, supported as a Senator in his 2015 immigration "Handbook" for Congressional Republicans, and which Adolf Hitler also praised some 90 years earlier in Mein Kampf.

    While my above ile.com blog comment deals more with legal issues involving this bill, there is also a good summary of the motives behind the introduction of this bill in a column by a Salon.com writer, Amanda Marcotte, describing this bill as part of "White Supremacy Week" at the White House.

    http:www.alternet.org/right-wing/white-supremacy-week-white-house-even-trump-standards-racism-was-dialed-11

    My only question is: why is it expected to last only a week?

    Isn't Trump supposed to be there for at least 4 years?

    POLITICO reports on August 2 that John Kelly, the new White House chief of staff who was moved over to that position from his previous job as DHS chief, has called Trump's embattled Attorney General to assure Jeff Sessions that his job is safe despite Trump's openly and frequently expressed anger at him for recusing himself from the Russia investigation, in which Special Counsel Robert Mueller has now impaneled a grand jury in a clear sign that this is a criminal investigation.

    http://www.politico.com/magazine/sto...15458?lo=ap_d1

    http://www.politico.com/story/2017/0...essions-241276

    Presumably, therefore, Sessions will be free to continue to carry out his agenda of turning America's immigration system back to the bigoted northern European whites only immigration act of 1924.

    Sessions praised this law as an ideal for America to follow as recently as January 2015, in his immigration "Handbook" for Congressional Republicans.

    An earlier German commentator, writing about that same law that Sessions admires so much some 90 years earlier in an autobiographical manifesto known to the world as Mein Kampf, also praised that same law and said that it gave him inspiration for his own policy proposals, which he later had the chance to put into effect beginning in 1933 and continuing until 1945. His name was Adolf Hitler.

    See:

    Jerusalem Post: 1/25/2013:

    Foundations of Holocaust:1924, Congress decides No More Jews

    Of course, even though Sessions' job appears to be safe for now, Kelly has no power to guarantee that, any more than he can guarantee his own tenure in the White House, working for a thin-skinned president with autocratic tendencies who easily takes offense at almost anything and is prone to feel "betrayed" even by his closest associates.

    https://www.commentarymagazine.com/p...jeff-sessions/

    It will be interesting to see whether both Kelly and Sessions, or either one of them, will still be working in the White House by the end of this year.

    This is a site for discussion of policy, not personalities, but it is an inescapable truth that there are times when policies are determined by personalities, and it becomes difficult, or impossible, to separate the two.

    We are living in such a time, known as the "Donald Trump Era."

    Therefore questions about the president's mental stability are highly relevant, indeed unavoidable, in a discussion of policy matters relating to immigration or any other topic.

    Multiple news reports on July 24 indicate that Trump is moving closer and closer to firing AG Jeff Sessions, one of the president's closest supporters and most ardent defenders on immigration matters, because of the respect that Sessions showed for the rule of law in recusing himself from the Russia-related investigations that have, reportedly, so infuriated Trump and are causing him so much anguish. See, POLITICO

    http://www.politico.com/story/2017/0...t-shame-240911

    If Sessions is forced out or chooses to resign, supporters of a fair and equitable immigration system where immigrants from Latin America, Asia, the Middle East and other non-white areas of the world are not systematically excluded from, or deported from, the United States en masse, will not weep many tears.

    Sessions, readers will no doubt remember, supported (in his 2015 immigration "Handbook") returning to the same openly race-based "national origins" immigration act of 1924 that cut off most immigration from outside the "Nordic" countries of Western Europe - a law that Adolf Hitler also admired, writing in Mein Kampf some 90 years earlier (though Sessions, to be fair, claimed to be supporting that noxious law for a different reason from the one that attracted so much admiration for this statute by the German Fuehrer).

    And no one has worked harder than Sessions to try to bring Trump's vision of an ethnically "pure" United States, or at least an America with an Hispanic population drastically reduced through mass deportation, than has Jeff Sessions as head of the Justice Department.

    But if Trump is so intent at enforcing slavish "loyalty" to himself, even if it means putting himself entirely above the law, that he is ready to fire one of his most loyal supporters and immigration allies, no one can say that democracy is safe in America any more.

    To the contrary, this country would be moving closer toward a Soviet-style purge system where even Stalin's closest associates were suddenly eliminated from power (or just eliminated completely) for even the slightest deviation from the party line.

    The contempt for the rule of law that was shown, among many other autocratic actions - see link below - in Trump's attempts to bludgeon the 9th Circuit and other federal courts into abject submission to his will (or mislead them, with the help of Sessions' Justice Department lawyers) into acquiescing in his Muslim ban immigration orders can, and very possibly will, lead to the loss of freedom for all Americans and its replacement by a one-man dictatorship in the United States.

    More chaos in the White House, according to POLITICO, as Trump persists in castigating his own lawyers for not making the Russia scandal(s) disappear immediately, while at the same time making their own efforts to protect him more difficult, if not impossible.

    http://www.politico.com/story/2017/0...lawyers-240489

    Is this White House really qualified to or in a position to develop a coherent immigration policy which respects the fundamental human rights of immigrants, as well as the values and interests of the American people in creating a society where everyone is equal before the law, regardless of race, color or religion?

    As Donald Trump finds himself more and more boxed in by increasing allegations (unproven so far, to be sure) of collusion or attempted collusion with Russia by his top aides or even his son, Donald Trump Jr., to influence last year's presidential election (in which Trump lost the popular vote to Hillary Clinton by almost 3 million votes); and as Special Counsel Robert Muller looks into possible Obstruction of Justice allegations (which would have no doubt long since led to frantic calls for Hillary Clinton's impeachment, if not imprisonment, if she had won the electoral college vote as well and were involved in a similar scandal), it is understandable that Trump might want to lash out at anyone or any group of people he can find as a target.

    And what better target is there than the Muslim immigrants whom Trump has been attacking as "terrorists" and "fifth columnists" for the past almost two years, supported by openly "Clash of Civilizations" Islamophobic "Holy Warriors such as Stephen Bannon, Stephen Miller and the now fired and disgraced (for unrelated reasons) Michael Flynn?

    In the very latest outrage over Trump's less than totally successful attempt to ban virtually the entire population of certain almost 100 per cent Muslim countries of the Middle East and Africa, so reminiscent of the infamous Chinese exclusion laws of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the US Customs and Border Protection Agency has detained and sent home an Iranian cancer researcher, Mohsan Dehnavi, who had a valid visa to work at a Harvard affiliated children's hospital on research which, quite reasonably, might be expected to lead to saving the lives of many American children or perhaps other cancer patients.

    CBP claims that sending Dehnavi back to Iran was not related to Trump's Muslim ban, but that it was for other, not clearly explained reasons.

    This reminds me of an old Ring Lardner story about a shady character named "Lefty".

    As I recall the story from many long years ago, Lefty goes to Philadelphia for the weekend, and someone is murdered in Philadelphia that same weekend.

    This doesn't prove that Lefty committed the murder, but suspicions that he did cannot be ruled out.

    In the same way, the Trump administration can argue all it wants that the Muslim ban, allegedly "had nothing to do" with sending this scientist and his family, all with valid visas, back to Iran, but there are those of us who will still have our suspicions.

    For more on this story, with links to relevant news articles, see my July 12 ilw.com blog comment on this incident.

    I need to correct my previous comment in one respect:

    Justice Kennedy's opinion in Kerry v. Din was a concurring opinion instead of a plurality one, and therefore it is not binding as precedent.

    However, from a technical standpoint, the Supreme Court majority's formulation: facially legitimate and bona fide in Mandel is not binding as precedent on the issue of good faith either, because the question of whether the US Consul acted in good faith in denying Mandel a visa in that case was not before the court.

    There was no allegation that the Consul acted in bad faith in that case.

    In the Muslim ban litigation, the evidence of bad faith, i.e. gross and willful misrepresentation of the reasons for issuing the executive orders involved in those cases was, as one federal district judge put it, "mountainous"

    The fourth Circuit found that Trump's latest Muslim ban order was "dripping" with "animus" and religious discrimination against Muslims.

    Nolan wants the courts to ignore all of this evidence on an expansive theory of presidential power where if the contest is between the Leader's word and the truth, the truth loses.

    There have been and still are countries with that kind of governmental structure - Germany between 1933 and 1945, the former Soviet Union; and, today, Russia (a country which the president admires so much and to which he may owe a very large and special debt of gratitude, if certain allegations which an independent counsel in now looking into turn out to be true).

    North Korea is another country where the truth about any subject is whatever the Dear Leader (or Great Leader or whatever - it is hard to keep track), says it is.

    Fortunately, the United States of America is not such a country - no matter how much our 45th president may be trying to take it in that direction.
