Clinton-appointed Brooklyn judge who called the FBI agents ‘heartless, to preserve the rules, DACA, in ‘bigoted’ Trump

Nicholas Garaufis, a Federal judge with a history of emotional and political comments, denied by the government to dismiss the application, DACA lawsuit, citing President Trump the “bigoted” comments.


A Federal judge in Brooklyn, NY, the trump administration’s immigration policy is “heartless,” ruled Thursday that a lawsuit seeking to preserve the Federal DACA program can continue to — with-candidate Donald Trump, the “racist” and “epithets.”

In a fiery ruling, U.S. district judge Nicholas Garaufis, who was appointed to the bench by former President Bill Clinton, shot down the government to reject the request, the action.

Garaufis, said Trump is the “open expressions of prejudice” during the 2016 presidential elections, which indicate that his attempts to return to the roles of DACA, since the assumption of office in January 2017, were unconstitutional, arbitrary and capricious — a high standard rarely invoked in order to override executive action.

“It could be reasonable to wrote way, conclude,” the judge, “that a candidate who makes blatantly, bigoted to the participate statements in the election campaign may be more, equally bigoted action in the office.”

“I’m just glad that I was born in Paterson, New Jersey, and not in Mexico City.”

DACA (Deferred action for Childhood Arrivals) is an Obama-era program in order to delay the deportation of people who came to the U.S. illegally as children. President Trump has expressed interest, the program ends.

The plaintiff, the state democratic attorneys General and other lawyers won an injunction from Garaufis in February, DACA went while in the suit. That restraining order was similar to an earlier be performed by a California court.

Garaufis’ injunction not to desire to accept the government’s new DACA applications. At the time, Garaufis said he was “sympathetic” to those who do not, for a period of time.


Garaufis has a history of taking an unusually emotional, political approach to his cases.

In September, he was a justice Department lawyer arguing publicly excoriated for a DACA renewal period.

“This is a democracy; these people prospered in America, and you can’t just come to court and defend a position so heartless,” Garaufis said in the courtroom. “I’m 68 years old and I have worked in every branch of the government, and I have never had a Situation like this.”

He continued by suggesting that the Trump management is motivated by xenophobia.

“It is not acceptable, to be quite honest, for me as a person and as an American,” he said at the hearing. “I’m just glad that I was born in Paterson, New Jersey, and not in Mexico City.”

In the year 2013, a New York federal appeals court, Garaufis of handling aspects of a lawsuit for alleged discrimination by the New York City Fire Department, said he seemed to be biased.

In this case, Garaufis, the Department ordered to implement racial quotas, and called for evidence of unlawful discrimination “incredible.”

The court of appeal found that “an objective observer is a reasonable basis to question the judge’s impartiality in assessing that evidence at trial.”
