Trump’s New Jersey Club Hired Undocumented Immigrants

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

On Thursday, the New York Times reported that two women who were working for President Donald Trump's Bedminster golf club were undocumented workers.

Morales tells the Times that she was motivated to speak up because she was sick of hearing the president attack undocumented immigrants while on the campaign trail.

Morales-who is still now employed at the gold club-also revealed she will be looking into filing a lawsuit claiming abuse and discrimination after a supervisor made hurtful comments about her intelligence and undocumented status.

Ms Morales noted multiple exchanges she had with Mr Trump were pleasant, including numerous occasions in which he tipped her $50 or $100 for her work in cleaning his private quarters.

He also said that they were both threatened with deportation and after Trump became president one of the women was also subject to abuse.

Quite an achievement for an immigrant housekeeper living in the country without legal permission.

During that campaign, Trump said his own businesses already used the system - which, in most states, is voluntary for employers.

A housekeeper who worked at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J., for three years is pulling back the curtain on President Trump's dirty laundry. 'We sweat it out to attend to his every need and have to put up with his humiliation'. 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. She is also "exploring a lawsuit claiming workplace abuse and discrimination", in the Times' words.

"We have tens of thousands of employees across our properties and have very strict hiring practices", Trump Organization spokeswoman Amanda Miller wrote in an email, without specifically addressing the article about Morales.

Two months after Mr. Trump's inauguration, in March 2017, Ms. Morales said that she and other workers received a new employee handbook. "If an employee submitted false documentation in an attempt to circumvent the law, they will be terminated immediately".

The New York Times article does not explain why Morales would take the risk of exposing her illegal status to a national audience, and so managers to fire here.

The White House declined to comment. In addition to calling for a wall on the Mexican border, he has urged companies to screen workers more carefully. Because falsifying these documents is so easy, E-Verify, which is required in 22 states, goes the extra step of checking them against records kept by the Social Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.

Morales is seeking asylum, and is aware she could lose her job for taking her complaints to the press. She understands she could be deported. She said she did not expect to return to work.

She says she washed and ironed Trump's white boxers, golf shirts, and khakis. "Why wouldn't he figure it out?"
