GotNews.com can independently confirm that Judge Gonzalo Curiel was an anchor baby thanks to naturalization records of his mother we obtained.
The highly elusive records confirm that Gonzalo Curiel’s mother Francisca became a U.S. citizen in 1969.
Gonzalo was born in 1953, meaning that when he was born his mother was not a U.S. citizen.
We can’t find any evidence that Curiel’s father was ever a U.S. citizen.
The New York Times “reported” that Curiel’s father — Gonzalo — became a U.S. citizen after coming to the country as a “laborer” in the 1920s.
Curiel’s brother, Raul, discussed the family’s immigration status in the New York Times.
Raul Curiel said their father, Salvador, arrived in Arizona as a laborer in the 1920s, eventually receiving citizenship and becoming a steelworker. Their parents were married in Mexico in 1946, and their mother, Francisca, became a citizen after joining her husband in the United States.
