Trump resort hired undocumented workers

On Thursday, the New York Times reported that two women who were working for President Donald Trump's Bedminster golf club were undocumented workers.

The lawyer representing two undocumented immigrants working at one of President Trump's golf resorts is asking New Jersey officials to investigate their treatment.

An undocumented immigrant who makes President Trump's bed at one of his golf clubs is speaking out against him.

The Times noted there is no evidence that Trump or Trump Organization executives knew of the two women's immigration status.

The praise for Trump undermines Morales's suggestion that she revealed her status in a high-minded protest of Trump's 2016 mandate to curb illegal immigration.

Trump has made border security a signature issue since he first began his presidential campaign on June 16, 2015, by saying: "When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best".

Morales has had dealings with Trump that go back years, and her husband has confirmed that she would on occasion come home jubilant because the club owner had paid her a compliment, or bestowed on her a $50 or sometimes a $100 tip. She says she is applying for asylum and is exploring a lawsuit claiming workplace abuse and discrimination.

Huawei confirms launch date of its in-screen selfie camera smartphone
Samsung has just confirmed the launch of their first "Infinity-O display" smartphone, the Galaxy A8, for December 10th in China. Hence, it is not clear how the brand would release the new OS update for the Galaxy A8s after the smartphone is launched.

Morales and Sandra Diaz, a former Bedminster employee who is now a legal USA resident, reached out to the Times through their lawyer, who is representing them in "immigration matters".

"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. As President, Trump has pushed for increased border security and a merit-based immigration system.

Since his election, Trump has pushed for passage of his "Four Pillars" immigration reforms, which would curb legal and illegal immigration, so pushing up wages for hotel maids and every other blue-collar person. "If an employee submitted false documentation in an attempt to circumvent the law, they will be terminated immediately".

"While Trump boasts about jobs and his hardline immigration policies, these fearless women have put their own jobs and lives on the line to pursue justice for themselves and other exploited workers", said Sandra Cordero, director of Families Belong Together.

The White House did not immediately respond to Newsweek's request for comment.

She says she washed and ironed Trump's white boxers, golf shirts, and khakis. But companies are not required in most cases to take additional steps to verify the authenticity of documents. "We call upon New Jersey's law enforcement community and federal authorities to investigate these allegations immediately and to help protect these fearless women and others who may now come forward", Romero added.

"A lot of people just left", Ms Morales said. 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.
