I told you before..

..that Trump’s biggest challenge will be the GOP/Republican establishment and the deep state elements of this apparatus.  Once you clear through the noisy, ridiculous resistance of the Left, you’ll see that it’s already happening.

Bush-appointed judge halts Trump travel ban nationwide – The Hill

Judge James Robart, who was appointed by former President George Bush in 2003, ruled the executive order would be stopped nationwide, effective immediately.
“The Constitution prevailed today,” Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson said in a statement after the ruling. “No one is above the law — not even the President.”
“It’s our president’s duty to honor this ruling and I’ll make sure he does,” Ferguson added.
The ruling, made at the request of Washington and Minnesota, is the broadest to date against Trump’s executive order.
Ferguson, a Democrat, filed the lawsuit three days after Trump signed the executive order. The suit argued that the travel ban targets Muslims and violates constitutional rights of immigrants and their families.
The White House pledged action “at the earliest possible time” in a late Friday statement.
“At the earliest possible time, the Department of Justice intends to file an emergency stay of this order and defend the executive order of the President, which we believe is lawful and appropriate,” the late Friday statement read.
lol except there’s one big problem here.  The United States Constitution applies to citizens and citizens only.  The President of the United States has always had the power to control immigration.  They’re essentially arguing that Barack Obama can break the law if it allows more immigrants in, but Trump can’t follow the law if it means fewer immigrants getting in.  This will be defeated, but it’s an early tell as to the numerous enemies this Administration has throughout every layer and department of the federal government.
