Trump appointed judge rules against him, for deported immigrant

Maribel Trujillo Diaz, a mother of four from Mexico who was deported from the U.S. last April, now has a sliver of hope thanks to a crucial assist from an unlikely source – a Donald Trump judicial appointee.

John K. Bush, United States Circuit Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, ruled in favor of Trujillo on Jan. 17, saying she has credible evidence that her safety was at risk from a Mexican drug cartel. Such a finding could strengthen Trujillo’s case that deporting her to Mexico was unethical. Trujillo became a national figure after she was deported to Mexico in April, after having lived peacefully in the United States since 2002. Her children still reside in the U.S., including a daughter who is still a toddler.
