Trump Organization responds to claims it hired illegal immigrants

09 December 2018

The White House declined to comment to Business Insider on Morales' interview, but the Trump Organisation told The Times in a statement that the company uses "very strict hiring practices".

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

Fed up with the way President Donald Trump talks about illegal immigrants, a housekeeper at his Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, admitted she's in the United States illegally. Morales said she entered by illegally swimming across the southwestern US border.

Trump's hotels also hire legal seasonal migrant workers via the H-2B program.

The case has roiled markets already hammered by months of rising trade tension between the world's two largest economies. But Martin told the judge Meng is a prominent figure and she would not violate a court order if she were released.

But she and Ms Morales described the president as demanding but kind, at times handing out tips as big as US$50 or US$100. "We sweat it out and attend to his every need and have to put up with his humiliation". She said he complimented Guatemalans as "hard-working people", tipped her $US50, and helped her wipe a glass window she was too short to reach.

The New York Times identified the women as Victorina Morales, who came to the U.S. illegally in 1999, and Sandra Diaz, a native of Costa Rica who was undocumented when she worked there between 2010 and 2013.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the agency charged with detaining and deporting immigrants who lack legal status, did not respond to questions asking about the case. According to the Times, Morales has applied for protection under asylum laws and is exploring a lawsuit claiming workplace abuse and discrimination. "A staunch and principled opponent of illegal immigrants like him would never allow such a thing!"

Ms Morales said she was hired to work at the New Jersey resort for $10 an hour in 2013, after telling a supervisor she didn't have "good papers".

Former President George H.W. Bush laid to rest in Texas
Bush, who died Friday at the age of 94, will be memorialized on Wednesday at the National Cathedral in Washington. In place of most federal dignitaries were top Houston athletes including the NFL Texans' defensive end J.J.

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.

Romero has called for federal and state investigations into the matter. And though we shouldn't assign worth to undocumented immigrants because of their labor - their contributions to the USA are greater than the many ways that they enrich others - it's repulsive that Trump could privately acknowledge their work ethic but then also turn around and paint them as a drain on resources.

'I ask myself, is it possible that this señor thinks we have papers?

When Trump began his presidential campaign, a manger told Morales she would no longer be working in Trump's house. "Why wouldn't he figure it out?"
