Lawyer Trump resort hired undocumented workers

The Times found two women who say they entered the United States unlawfully but were employed at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey.

In an interview with The New York Times, Victorina Morales, an undocumented immigrant from Guatemala, said she crossed the border illegally in 1999, before being hired at Trump's exclusive golf resort for more than five years from 2013.

Victorina Morales, an immigrant from Guatemala, and Sandra Diaz, a native of Costa Rica, told the New York Times that they both worked for years at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J., along with several other undocumented immigrants, and that their supervisors knew their employment violated us law.

President Donald Trump answers questions from the press while departing the White House on November 29 in Washington, D.C. An undocumented immigrant revealed she was employed as a housekeeper at Trump's National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey.

The Guatemala native spoke to The New York Times about how she travelled to New Jersey after illegally crossing the border nearly 20 years ago. She also shared with the Times that the president was particular about having his items, as well as Melania's and Barron's, washed with a "special detergent" in a washing machine separate from the rest of the club's residents.

The women added that at least two of their supervisors knew they were working illegally and went to lengths to help the women hide their statuses.

Ariza said. "I can see why they would want to play elsewhere". "I'm past the personal stage", James said. "He's very unselfish. After all, James is one of the players that advocated - and possibly even planned - for Chandler to join the Lakers .

Morales told the paper she used fake documents to obtain a job at the Trump golf club in 2013. Morales and a few other workers are driven to work every day by a company shuttle because the golf course knows they can't legally get a driver's license. He claimed, "We didn't have one illegal immigrant on the job".

Mr Trump made a crackdown on illegal immigration one of the central planks of his campaign and presidency.

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

Victorina Morales and Sandra Diaz approached the New York Times with their stories through an immigration lawyer.

"We are exhausted of the abuse, the insults, the way he talks about us when he knows that we are here helping him make money", she told the Times.

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. 'We sweat it out to attend to his every need and have to put up with his humiliation'.
