Lawyer: Trump resort hired undocumented workers

Undocumented immigrants who worked as housekeepers at President Donald Trump's National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, have revealed details of their time serving the president and his guests. She and another undocumented woman, who used to work at the golf club, claim that numerous property's workers are similarly undocumented, although they could not specify the number.

The newspaper admitted: "There is no evidence that Mr. Trump or Trump Organization executives knew of their immigration status".

During the presidential campaign, when the Trump International Hotel opened for business in Washington, Trump boasted that he had used an electronic verification system, E-Verify, to ensure that only those legally entitled to work were hired.

One supervisor, in the Times" words, "frequently made remarks about the employees' vulnerable legal status when critiquing their work ... sometimes calling them "stupid illegal immigrants' with less intelligence than a dog". Morales said that she understood she could be fired or deported as a result of coming forward, though she has applied for protection under the asylum laws. Although Diaz now has legal residency in the US, she claims there were "many people without papers" working at the resort.

'You did a really great job, ' he told Morales at one point, giving her a $100 bill.

Since his election, Trump has pushed for passage of his "Four Pillars" immigration reforms, which would curb legal and illegal immigration, so pushing up wages for hotel maids and every other blue-collar person.

The women approached the paper through their lawyer to tell of their time working for Trump, and how they landed jobs by using fake Social Security numbers and green cards.

"This toxic environment was created to intimidate these women, leaving them fearful for their safety and the safety of their families", Romero said. She is also "exploring a lawsuit claiming workplace abuse and discrimination", in the Times' words.

The Trump Organization "did not comment specifically" on Morales or Diaz when asked by the Times.

The White House declined to comment on whether Mr. "If any employee submitted false documentation in an attempt to circumvent the law, they will be terminated immediately", a spokesperson for the Trump Organization told Fox News via email. "He knows we don't speak English", she said separately. But companies are not required in most cases to take additional steps to verify the authenticity of documents.

Romero has called for federal and state investigations into the matter. Noticing that Ms. Morales, who is shy of five feet tall, could not reach the top, he said, "Excuse me", grabbed her rag and wiped the upper portion of the glass.
