Noel Francisco

Noel Francisco Noel John Francisco (born August 21, 1969) is an American lawyer who served as Solicitor General of the United States from 2017 to 2020. He was the first Asian American confirmed by the United States Senate to hold the position. Francisco is now a partner at the law firm Jones Day.

As Solicitor General, Francisco was characterized as a staunch defender of President Donald Trump. In his position, Francisco sought to have the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) and Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) struck down by the courts, neither of which occurred during his tenure. He also defended Executive Order 13769, which was a ban on travelers from predominantly Muslim countries deemed to present security risks; this was ultimately upheld by the Supreme Court in ''Trump v. Hawaii''. Provided by Wikipedia
