    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.

    Let it never be said that America's 45th chief executive's bigotry and hate extend only to non-European immigrants. His assaults against the basic rights of vulnerable and discriminated against members of our society go well beyond just foreign citizens.
