According to “SooperMexican,” a contributor for The Right Scoop, a Fox News personality is a member of the same group as the controversial figure, Gonzalo Curiel — the judge overseeing the case on Trump University.
Kim Guilfoyle, a regular contributor on Fox News Channel’s The Five, belongs to an organization called the La Raza Lawyers Association, the same group of which Curiel is a member. Guilfoyle has mentioned the group on air, and her involvement was also noted in an online 2008 bio, Right Scoop reported.
Trump has criticized Curiel in recent weeks, bringing up his Mexican ethnicity several times. “[Curiel] is proud of his heritage … But he’s not treating me fairly,” Trump said. “I say he’s got bias. I want to build a wall. I’m going to build a wall.”

Additionally, some supporters of the presumed Republican nominee have claimed Curiel’s involvement in the group shows he is unable to give Trump a fair trial.
However, the La Raza group that Curiel and Guilfoyle are involved with is completely separate from the radical left-wing group, National Council of La Raza. In fact, Curiel was involved as a lawyer targeting Mexican drug cartels, and Guilfoyle is an ardent Trump supporter.
“If Trump people really believe that any group with ‘La Raza’ in its name is as bad as the KKK, as so often said on social media, then why aren’t they outraged at Kimberly Guilfoyle being employed at Fox?” wrote SooperMexican.
