INDIANAPOLIS (AP): Two top Indiana Republicans have condemned GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump’s comments about the impartiality of a Latino federal judge presiding over lawsuits involving Trump University.
Attorney General Greg Zoeller told The (Munster) Times that Trump’s comments about U.S. District Court Judge Gonzalo Curiel in San Diego are “way out of bounds” and threaten to undermine Americans’ faith in the judicial system.
U.S. Rep. Jackie Walorski says, “Questioning a judge’s impartiality based on his ethnicity is not only inappropriate, it has no place in American society.”
Trump has said Curiel cannot be impartial in the suits because his parents were born in Mexico and Trump wants to build a wall along the border. Curiel was born in East Chicago, Indiana, to Mexican immigrants.
