    Karma: Judge falsely denigrated by Trump as "Mexican" will hear deportation case

    Don't care who ya are - this is AWESOME!


    (CNN) A highly unusual and racially charged episode from the 2016 campaign suddenly resurfaced this week when a federal judge whom President Donald Trump repeatedly criticized was assigned to hear the case of a man who claims he was improperly deported.

    Judge Gonzalo Curiel, who was born in the US but is of Mexican heritage, was attacked by Trump last year over his handling of a lawsuit against Trump University. Trump claimed Curiel could not impartially hear the case because of his background and Trump's hardline immigration policies. The case was eventually settled.

    Now, Curiel is assigned to hear the case of Juan Manuel Montes Bojorquez, 23, who his lawyers allege was deported from California to Mexico earlier this year despite having active protection under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, also known as DACA.
    And Trump's comments toward Curiel last year -- he called the Indiana-born judge a "hater" and a "Mexican" -- drew some of the loudest accusations of racism that the then-candidate faced during his campaign and several repudiations from prominent Republicans.

    Just goes to show, you should really watch what you say, it could come back to bite ya!

    Regardless, judges are supposed to try cases impartially, they're supposed to follow the law, not personal feelings.

    Why is it awesome? Should a judge allow personal animosity into his court opinions?

    If the judge cannot set aside his personal feelings towards Trump and decide based on the merits of the case, he has no business being a judge.

    It's awesome because it'll inspire more amazing Trump tweets - probably Saturday morning around 4 AM.

    No, it's "awesome" precisely for the reason Chris stated. This country is doomed.

    The judge should recuse himself, he's going into the case, with a bias towards Trump.

    Wait - Curiel hasn't said a word about all the nutty stuff Trump said about him.

    Maybe Trump should recuse himself as president?
