Donald Trump has been combating the Trump University case and presiding Judge Gonzalo Curiel, who Trump says has been a “disgrace” and has been unfair and biased towards him. Well, it turns out Curiel is a member of the La Raza Lawyers of San Diego and oversaw the gift of a law school scholarship to an illegal alien.
In his 2011 judicial questionnaire to become a federal judge, Curiel revealed his ties and history with the notorious liberal and racist organization known as La Raza. He has spoken at two receptions held by La Raza Lawyers of San Diego, the most recent being in 2011. However, the group also held a reception for Curiel last year. “This year we are proud to be honoring Judge Gonzalo Curiel at our reception and recognizing him for his leadership and support to the community and to our Association!,” read the description of the event.
Curiel served on the selection committee in 2014 for the La Raza Lawyers of San Diego Scholarship Fund. Six of seven of the recipients chosen for scholarships ranging from $1500 to $1600 were born in Central America. One of them, Ricardo Elorza, was an identified illegal alien.
The National La Raza Council is the largest Hispanic advocacy group in the U.S. and has taken a strong stance anti-Trump stance. They previously accused Saturday Night Live as a platform for “hate” for inviting the presumptive GOP nominee on to the show. La Raza translates to “the race” in English.
