Trump golf club employs undocumented workers

'We are tired of the abuse': Undocumented immigrant reveals that she and others have worked for Trump for years

'We are tired of the abuse': Undocumented immigrant reveals that she and others have worked for Trump for years

Victorina Morales, 45, from Guatemala, has been a housekeeper at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster since 2013, making Mr Trump's bed and cleaning his toilet after being hired with phony documents, the Times reported. He's regularly claimed that people who come across the southern US border are hardened criminals and drug-smugglers, particularly as he campaigned for Republicans prior to the November midterm elections. 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.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the agency charged with detaining and deporting immigrants who lack legal status, did not respond to questions asking about the case.

"We have tens of thousands of employees across our properties and have very strict hiring practices", Amanda Miller, the company's senior vice president for marketing and corporate communications, said in a statement.

"My clients are willing to cooperate with federal authorities and with state authorities so they can provide details", Romero said.

A spokesperson for the Trump Organization did not address the allegations of mistreatment but said the golf club had a policy of not hiring undocumented immigrants.

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 of the women has since become a legal USA resident. His golf courses in North Carolina and Doral, Florida, use it, as well as his Mar-a-Lago resort and his hotels in Washington and Chicago.

He added that there were more like the two workers he represents working for Trump without documents and stressed the management "absolutely" facilitated their illegal employment.

Eight states require almost all employers to use the system: Alabama, Arizona, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Utah. Trump started running for president.

But in recent months, he has largely gone quiet on the program, preferring to focus his immigration rhetoric on migrants at the Mexico border. As President, Trump has pushed for increased border security and a merit-based immigration system.

Romero said that Morales believes at least a dozen workers at the resort do not have legal documentation to work.

Morales told the news outlet she expects to be reprimanded severely with the report coming out.

The Times story was posted online on Thursday afternoon.

The Trump Organization, which owns the golf course, did not comment specifically on Ms.[Victorina] Morales or Ms.[Sandra] Diaz.
