Judge Curiel’s parents arrived in the United States from Mexico before Donald Trump’s mother did according to MSNBC, and he was born in East Chicago, Indiana. His father reportedly arrived in the United States after the Bracero Program was established in 1942, becoming a legal resident by the time Curiel’s mother arrived in the country.
