Two women, who are illegal immigrants, claim they were subject to abuse and threats while working at President Trump's exclusive golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey - and they want authorities to investigate the allegations. Morales, who came here in 1999 with two years of schooling and no English, was hurt to hear Trump equating immigrants like her with criminals; she was also upset by supervisors calling her and the many other immigrant workers "stupid", "illegal", with "less intelligence than a dog". During her interview, Morales suggested that, since their supervisor was aware of their immigration status, it's possible President Trump also knows.
Victorina Morales said she's not the only unauthorised immigrant employed at one of the president's properties, adding that she knows coming forward could mean she loses her job or gets deported.
When Trump began his presidential campaign, a manger told Morales she would no longer be working in Trump's house.
"We have tens of thousands of employees across our properties and have very strict hiring practices", Amanda Miller, a spokeswoman for the Trump Organization, said in a statement provided to CNN.
Anibal Romero, a lawyer representing Victorina Morales and Sandra Diaz, tells The Associated Press that the two women used false Social Security and permanent resident documents to get jobs at Trump's resort in Bedminster, New Jersey. She says she is applying for asylum and is exploring a lawsuit claiming workplace abuse and discrimination.
The Trump Organization "did not comment specifically" on Morales or Diaz when asked by the Times.
Ms Diaz said she washed and ironed Mr Trump's white boxers, golf shirts, khaki pants, sheets and towels with special detergent in a separate machine. "If any employee submitted false documentation in an attempt to circumvent the law, they will be terminated immediately". Today, she spent the day with her lawyer, and as news of her disclosures spread, she did not answer a phone call from her supervisor at the golf course.
She said the two women were "victims of crimes" perpetrated by Mr.
Mr Trump will meet House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer at the White House on Tuesday to discuss the next step to avoiding that result.
She said she is certain that her employers - perhaps even Trump - knew of her unlawful status all along. Beck said Trump has "let us down in his promise to help American workers" because he hasn't "put his shoulder behind a mandatory E-Verify bill". "A staunch and principled opponent of illegal immigrants like him would never allow such a thing!" "Why wouldn't he figure it out?"
