Trump golf club employs undocumented workers

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.

Her immigration status apparently didn't matter to "at least two supervisors" at Bedminster, Morales says.

But the admission is buried in the 50th paragraph of the article, which highlights the comments from a Guatemalan illegal who told the newspaper that she expected to be fired after revealing her illegal status to the media.

He added that there were more like the two workers he represents working for Trump without documents and stressed the management "absolutely" facilitated their illegal employment. And they say they're not the only ones. He claimed, "We didn't have one illegal immigrant on the job".

His anti-immigration views are also not limited to the United States; Trump has criticized European nations for allowing refugees and migrants to resettle there, saying the newcomers "change the fabric" of the West for the worse.

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 and 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. According to the Times, Morales has applied for protection under asylum laws and is exploring a lawsuit claiming workplace abuse and discrimination.

"We have tens of thousands of employees across our properties and have very strict hiring practices", Trump Organization spokeswoman Amanda Miller wrote in an email, without specifically addressing the article about Morales. Although Diaz now has legal residency in the US, she claims there were "many people without papers" working at the resort.

Morales, who earns US$13 an hour, said employees had become increasingly upset by Trump's negative rhetoric about Hispanic immigrants and said a supervisor berated them as "stupid illegal immigrants".

Morales entered the United States illegally in 1999 and made her way to New Jersey. "If an employee submitted false documentation in an attempt to circumvent the law, they will be terminated immediately".

The White House declined to comment. But companies are not required in most cases to take additional steps to verify the authenticity of documents. 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 also shared with the Times that the president was particular about having his items, as well as Melania's and Barron's, washed with a "special detergent" in a washing machine separate from the rest of the club's residents.
