    According to a memo obtained by the San Francisco Chronicle, DOJ has suspended all diversity and inclusion events for its employees -- including immigration judges -- whether attendance is required or even permitted on Government-paid time. The memo is in response to an executive order issued by President Trump that labeled bias sensitivity training as “offensive and anti-American race and sex stereotyping and scapegoating.”
