The California judge who was verbally attacked by President Trump on the campaign trail has been assigned to hear the case of 23-year-old deported DREAMer Juan Manuel Montes, who has sued the Trump administration for deporting him to Mexico even though he had legal permission to live and work in the United States through 2018 under President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, known as DACA. U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel was presiding over a lawsuit alleging Trump University defrauded students, when Trump claimed the judge’s Mexican heritage made him biased against Trump. Trump ultimately settled the lawsuit for $25 million.
