Trump golf club employs undocumented workers

An undocumented immigrant who makes President Trump's bed at one of his golf clubs is speaking out against him. And due to her "outstanding service" during the president's visits, the White House Communications Agency even awarded her a certificate in July.

Another woman, Sandra Diaz, who's from Costa Rica and is now a legal resident of the US, said she was also undocumented when she worked at Bedminster between 2010 and 2013, the Times reported.

The Trump Organization hit back at a bombshell report in The New York Times that said President Trump's elite resorts had numerous illegal aliens as housekeeping, maintenance, and landscaping employees.

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.

"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", Victorina Morales told the Times. "We sweat it out and attend to his every need and have to put up with his humiliation".

Diaz discussed the tasks she carried out in her role when she cleaned Trump's residence, down to the way he liked his clothing laundered, which included ironing everything from his white boxers, golf shirts and khaki pants to his sheets and towels.

"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".

'There are many people without papers, ' said Diaz. "We call upon New Jersey's law enforcement community and federal authorities to investigate these allegations immediately and to help protect these courageous women and others who may now come forward", Romero added. She is also exploring a lawsuit claiming workplace abuse and discrimination.

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

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".

But throughout his campaign and his administration, Morales, 45, has been reporting for work at Trump's golf course in Bedminster, where she is still on the payroll. She also made available her Individual Taxpayer Identification, a nine-digit number that is issued by the IRS to foreigners to enable them to file taxes without being permanent residents of the United States.

The Trump Organization, which owns the golf course, did not comment specifically on Morales or Diaz.

"I ask myself, is it possible that this señor thinks we have papers?" Morales said these comments hurt her and compelled her to come forward with her story. "Why wouldn't he figure it out?"
