A few even had the keys to Eric Trump's weekend home, The Washington Post reports.

Chris Christie said Wednesday that President Trump needs to "let loose" next week during his State of the Union address.

But Morales, who entered the USA illegally in 1999, said in an interview with CNN that she had no problem getting hired by the club.

Morales has been one of the most vocal of the undocumented workers who have recently gone public to describe their experiences working for Trump's company.

In December, the New York Times first reported that Morales, a Guatemalan national who crossed the USA border illegally in 1999, worked as a maid at the club as an undocumented worker.

"The number of immigrants claiming they were employed illegally by the Trump Organization has risen to more than 20 individuals and raises serious questions of criminal activity and numerous violations of employment laws at the Trump Golf Club in Westchester County, New York, and Bedminster, New Jersey - including conspiracy charges, procuring false documents, and forced and coerced labor", the letter states.

Along with other former club workers, Morales was on Capitol Hill Tuesday meeting with lawmakers to push for an investigation into the Trump Organization's hiring practices and for protection from deportation.

But Tim Rycroft, of the Food and Drink Federation, said: "Drawing a comparison between tobacco and food is deeply irresponsible". Food and beverage giants have already been shifting toward healthier products and have been cutting fat and sodium levels.

"I hope that in his State of the Union address, Donald Trump will finally acknowledge the real face of immigrants in this country", Coleman said in a statement.

'And if he can't, I've invited Victorina so that he may look her in her eyes to tell his lies to a familiar face'.

Democratic lawmakers a year ago invited guests personally affected by the immigration debate and the #MeToo movement. He turned over day-to-day management of his business to sons Eric and Donald Jr. when he took office. The president maintains an ownership stake in the company. Two of the four workers said the company helped them obtain false documents to justify their employment, a claim that Eric Trump denied. We take this issue very seriously. This is one of the reasons my father is fighting so hard for immigration reform.

"If they get removed from the USA, that is obstruction of justice because these are witnesses and that's what we're talking about on Capitol Hill and they've been very responsive", said David Leopold, a partner with Ulmer & Berne who chairs the firm's immigration practice. "The system is broken".

She began working at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster as a housekeeper in 2013.

"It isn't illegal to work in the United States, but it is illegal to knowingly hire undocumented immigrants and then [for] supervisors to physically assault them, threaten them with deportation", he told CNN.
