Both of District Judge Gonzalo P. Curiel’s parents were born in Mexico. This heritage and his perceived anti-Trump bias presiding over a lawsuit against Trump during the 2016 presidential election was a campaign issue at the time.
The federal judge whom President Trump characterized during his campaign as “a Mexican” and therefore biased against him said he would announce a ruling next week that could determine whether the government can proceed with its expedited plans to build a border wall.
District Judge Gonzalo P. Curiel is presiding over a lawsuit filed by advocacy groups and the state of California challenging the Department of Homeland Security’s plans to bypass standard environmental-impact studies and rapidly expand barriers along the Mexican border.
Curiel said Friday that DHS has yet to explain why it must proceed so urgently in its construction plans.
