Trump's New Jersey Golf Resort Employs Illegal Immigrants

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.

Morales, who is now employed at Bedminster, pays taxes just like legal immigrants and American citizens, says she and other undocumented employees at Bedminster are coming forward out of frustration with Trump's attacks on immigrants.

Around the same time, she said, several workers, who she said were also working illegally, had their work days shaved from five days to three days. Both told the Times that at least two supervisors were aware of their status and helped them evade detection.

The Times noted there is no evidence that Trump or Trump Organization executives knew of the two women's immigration status.

Mr Trump made a crackdown on illegal immigration one of the central planks of his campaign and presidency. He even boasted during his presidential campaign that not a single illegal immigrant worked for his organization. According to the Times, Morales has applied for protection under asylum laws and is exploring a lawsuit claiming workplace abuse and discrimination.

"We have tens of thousands of employees across our properties and have very strict hiring practices", said a Trump Organization spokesperson in a statement sent to AFP.

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. "If any employee submitted false documentation in an attempt to circumvent the law, they will be terminated immediately". "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". Trump, who complains about illegal immigration and promotes hiring of Americans, employing unauthorized workers.

The White House did not immediately respond to Newsweek's request for comment.

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

She said she didn't have proper documentation, and she used false Social Security and permanent resident cards.
