Lawyer says 2 Trump workers faced abuse

Share

A lawyer for two undocumented workers hired by a resort owned by President Donald Trump says that one of them was called "donkey" and "dog" by a supervisor and threatened with deportation to get her to work harder.

Lemon noted the Trump Organization responded to the allegations with a statement highlighting its "very strict hiring practices" and vow to fire any employee who submitted false documentation.

Undocumented immigrants who either work or have worked at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey are now going on the record to talk about their experiences working there in interviews with the New York Times. Obviously Trump doesn't personally hire every housekeeper in his clubs (although one of these undocumented immigrants was ironing his underwear; that's how close to him they were).

Both women were described by the Times as finding Trump demanding as an employer, but kind.

Good boy: Sully the service dog visits Bush's casket
Saudi Arabia's foreign minister Adel Al-Jubeir has expressed condolence over the demise of former USA president George H.W. Duane Allen of the Oak Ridge Boys says Bush had personally requested that the group sing " Amazing Grace " at his funeral.

It also broadly contradicts Trump's xenophobic, fear-mongering rhetoric about illegal immigrants at large.

These unnamed supervisors took steps to help illegal workers evade detection and keep their jobs, the women said. "We sweat it out and attend to his every need and have to put up with his humiliation".

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.

The Times also examined the documents Morales presented as proof that she was entitled to work - a permanent resident card, or green card, and a Social Security card, both of which she said she purchased from someone in New Jersey who produced counterfeit documents for immigrants.

Once, Trump asked her to follow him to the clubhouse where he ran his fingers over picture frames and tables checking for dust. She said that after Mr Trump started campaigning for the presidency, she was told she could not work at his residence, and others had their hours cut down.

"After the family separation humanitarian crisis, the racist fear-mongering during the midterms, and the violent tear-gassing of children seeking asylum, it should come as no surprise that Trump executes his campaign of hate and division while profiting off the backs of undocumented and vulnerable workers", she said.

"My clients are willing to cooperate with federal authorities and with state authorities so they can provide details", Romero said. CNN's Don Lemon called Trump a hypocrite for employing undocumented immigrants.

Sandra Diaz, from Costa Rica, told the Times she worked illegally at the club from 2010 to 2013 and at least two supervisors were aware that she and others did not have working rights. "Why wouldn't he figure it out?"
