Trump's New Jersey Golf Resort Employs Illegal Immigrants

'We are tired of the abuse': Undocumented immigrant reveals that she and others have worked for Trump for years Trump's New Jersey Golf Resort Employs Illegal Immigrants

The Times article spotlighted Victorina Morales, an undocumented immigrant from Guatemala, who has worked as a housekeeper at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, since 2013.

"There are many people without papers", Diaz said of the club's staff. Morales also said that her supervisor would sometimes demean employees as being "stupid illegal immigrants" who are less intelligent than dogs.

It appears unlikely that Trump would be aware of either woman's immigration status.

Trump has called for a crackdown on immigrants in the country illegally.

The Washington Post said in 2015 that it had interviewed workers during the construction of Trump International Hotel in Washington who said they had entered the country illegally.

Mr. Trump then asked Ms. Morales her name and where she was from, she recalled. 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.

"While working at Donald Trump's estate in Bedminster and interacting with the President and his immediate family, my clients and others were repeatedly subjected to abuse, called racial epithets and threatened with deportation", Anibal Romero, a lawyer representing Morales and Diaz, said in a statement to Yahoo News.

"We have tens of thousands of employees across our properties and have very strict hiring practices", the company said in an email.

"The president has been half-serious about stopping illegal immigration by not taking away the jobs magnet", said Roy Beck, president of NumbersUSA, a group pushing to reduce immigration. Trump, who complains about illegal immigration and promotes hiring of Americans, employing unauthorized workers.

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. She also claimed to the newspaper that a housekeeping supervisor at Bedminster made insulting comments about her intelligence and undocumented status.

The White House declined to comment. "We call upon New Jersey's law enforcement community and federal authorities to investigate these allegations immediately and to help protect these fearless women and others who may now come forward".

Morales says lower-level managers at the golf club helped her circumvent Trump's enforcement rules.

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

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