Housekeeper at Trump's New Jersey golf club tells newspaper she is undocumented

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

Trump's New Jersey Golf Resort Employs Illegal Immigrants

The Times article spotlighted Victorina Morales, an undocumented immigrant from Guatemala, who has worked as a housekeeper at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, since 2013.

Morales said Jorge Villafuerte, identified as a club facilities manager in a photo with President Trump, later gave her money to get a fake green card and Social Security card.

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.

The housekeeper even recalled a time in 2012 when Trump ran his finger around the edges of picture frames and over the surfaces of tables to check for dust.

One supervisor, in the Times" words, "frequently made remarks about the employees' vulnerable legal status when critiquing their work ... sometimes calling them "stupid illegal immigrants' with less intelligence than a dog". The president railed against illegal immigrants in the "caravan" during the campaign, and has referred to an "infestation" of immigration.

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

Trump's Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Florida, and his golf course in Jupiter, Florida, filed documents in 2017 to bring in additional foreign workers under the H-2B visa program. "We sweat it out to attend to his every need and have to put up with his humiliation". Noticing that Ms. Morales, who is shy of five feet tall, could not reach the top, he said, "Excuse me", grabbed her rag and wiped the upper portion of the glass. 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", said a Trump Organization spokesperson in a statement sent to AFP.

There have also been rumors that fellow female rapper Cuban Doll was secretly involved with Offset as well. She posted an apology letter on IG and addressed the supposed infidelity in a video given to TMZ .

"I'm using E-Verify on just about every job", Trump told MSNBC host Chris Matthews during a televised "town hall" in March 2016, later adding, "I'm using E-Verify, and I'll tell you, it works".

But she and Morales described the president as demanding but kind, at times handing out tips as big as US$50 or US$100.

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

She said the same supervisor, who is unnamed in the story, had provided her with forged documents.

"If any employee submitted false documentation in an attempt to circumvent the law, they will be terminated immediately", Miller said.

The Trump Organization "did not comment specifically" on Morales or Diaz when asked by the Times. In addition to calling for a wall on the Mexican border, he has urged companies to screen workers more carefully.

Morales is seeking asylum, and is aware she could lose her job for taking her complaints to the press. "Why wouldn't he figure it out?"
