Trump golf club employs undocumented workers

Adjust Comment Print

A woman working as a housekeeper at President Donald Trump's golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey - trusted to make Trump's bed and iron the president's clothes - revealed that she is an unauthorized immigrant in an interview with the New York Times.

Since Trump was elected president, he has launched several attacks on Latin American immigrants, at times comparing them to violent criminals.

The article suggests that Trump's refusal to question her status is evidence that he knew she was an illegal migrant, and that he is a hypocrite for employing illegals while championing pro-American reforms.

She said Trump would sometimes give her a $50 or $100 tip.

Trump boasted during the presidential campaign that no illegal immigrants worked at any of his properties.

A statement from their lawyer, Anibal Romero, says that a supervisor also hurled racial epithets at the women and threatened them with deportation. The paper's refusal in the article to follow the money in the immigration debate undermines the newspaper's claim to be a supporter of ordinary people against powerful people.

Diaz produced similar documents, though since she has gained legal residence she has been issued a genuine Social Security card and green card.

Fighting undocumented immigration has always been one of the main points of Trump's presidency. "We sweat it out and attend to his every need and have to put up with his humiliation". "She told me to bring what I used at the hotel".

"We have tens of thousands of employees across our properties and have very strict hiring practices,"a Trump Organization spokesperson told the Times".

'I never imagined, as an immigrant from the countryside in Guatemala, that I would see such important people close up, ' said Morales.

She said the same supervisor, who is unnamed in the story, had provided her with forged documents.

"If any employee submitted false documentation in an attempt to circumvent the law, they will be terminated immediately".

The Trump Organization, which owns the golf course, did not comment specifically on Morales or Diaz.

Morales entered the United States illegally in 1999 and made her way to New Jersey. CBS News reached out to the White House but have not heard back. In addition to calling for a wall on the Mexican border, he has urged companies to screen workers more carefully.

The federal list posted online of employers who use the E-Verify system includes Trump's golf club in North Carolina, a state that requires it, but the Bedminster club in New Jersey, where it is not required under state law, does not appear on the list.

Morales is seeking asylum, and is aware she could lose her job for taking her complaints to the press.

"I ask myself, is it possible that this señor thinks we have papers?"

"I'm exhausted of being humiliated and treated like a stupid person", she said in Spanish during a brief interview.
