Trump may be able to fool his feeble-minded supporters into believing he’s the “least racist” person anyone could ever meet, but he’s not fooling any federal judges. One of the more offensive actions by the GOP in recent months is its usage of the roughly 800,000 DACA recipients as a political pawn.
The president attempted and failed to get funding for his border wall by holding DACA recipients hostage, then he turned around and blamed Democrats for doing precisely what he did.
Judge Nicholas G. Garaufis of Federal District Court in Brooklyn just ruled in favor of preserving the DACA program, and he had some harsh but true words to say about Trump.
Judge Garaufis shot down the DOJ’s attempt to dismiss the Brooklyn lawsuit that is keeping DACA intact, citing the president’s “racial slurs” and “epithets” as reasons for why the DOJ doesn’t have a case.
“One might reasonably infer,” wrote Judge Garaufis, “that a candidate who makes overtly bigoted statements on the campaign trail might be more likely to engage in similarly bigoted action in office.”
Judge Garaufis highlighted Trump’s criticisms of Mexicans in which he accused Mexico of sending “criminals” and “rapists” into the United States. The president also referred to Mexicans as “animals” and “bad hombres” in the past.
For once, Trump’s words came back to bite him.
