Trump Organization Hits NY Times: We Don't Hire Illegals

Trump Organization Hits NY Times: We Don't Hire Illegals

The Times found two women who say they entered the United States unlawfully but were employed at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey.

The report also says a resort supervisor hurled racial epithets at the women and threatened them with deportation.

Morales expects she will have to leave her job as soon as her name and work status are made public. "We're just immigrants who don't have papers".

So will Trump's supporters, the ones who chant "Build the wall!" at his rallies and thrill to every attack he makes on immigrants, be unsettled by any of this?

The Trump Organisation said in a statement that "if an employee submitted false documentation in an attempt to circumvent the law, they will be terminated immediately". According to the Times, Morales has applied for protection under asylum laws and is exploring a lawsuit claiming workplace abuse and discrimination.

Her lawyer, Anibel 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 U.S. 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. Trump took on the campaign trail - making his own companies' lack of use all the more striking. She's worked for Trump since 2013, and she now earns $13 an hour. Pay no attention to the undocumented immigrants at my golf club.

The Trump Organization did not respond to questions asking why some of its properties do not appear in the system.

Trump expected to pick Heather Nauert as U.S. ambassador to UN
Nauert covered domestic and global stories as an ABC News correspondent from 2005 to 2007 prior to joining Fox. Nauret now faces Senate approval and will need to tackle questions on her lack of experience in the field.

President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump hold hands as they leave Blair House after visiting with the family of former President George H.W. Bush, Tuesday, in Washington. Trump, who complains about illegal immigration and promotes hiring of Americans, employing unauthorized workers.

His silence on the issue has, to the dismay of some conservatives, drained momentum from one of their top policy goals. Perhaps emboldened by that talk, she says her supervisor started verbally abusing workers, calling them "stupid illegal immigrants". 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".

Another club staffer drove her to work, the paper reported, because she could not legally obtain a driver's license.

Morales, who left Guatemala in 1999, says Trump would sometimes give her a $50 or $100 tip.

The Times story was posted online on Thursday afternoon.

Morales told the Times that she understood that she could be fired and deported but felt she had to speak out.
