Trump's New Jersey Golf Resort Employs Illegal Immigrants

'We are tired of the abuse': Undocumented immigrant reveals that she and others have worked for Trump for years

Morales, who is now employed at Bedminster, pays taxes just like legal immigrants and American citizens, says she and other undocumented employees at Bedminster are coming forward out of frustration with Trump's attacks on immigrants.

Sandra Diaz, 46, a native of Costa Rica who is now a legal resident of the United States, said she, too, was in the country without legal permission when she worked at Bedminster between 2010 and 2013.

Around the same time, she said, several workers, who she said were also working illegally, had their work days shaved from five days to three days. "If any employee submitted false documentation in an attempt to circumvent the law, they will be terminated immediately", a Trump Organization spokesperson said in a statement. But there is no evidence that Trump or his executives knew about this. According to witnesses, some supervisors even help workers evade detection and keep their jobs.

"He knows we don't speak English", Morales told The Times. Ms. Morales said that she understood she could be fired or deported as a result of coming forward, though she has applied for protection under the asylum laws. She is also "exploring a lawsuit claiming workplace abuse and discrimination", in the Times' words.

The Trump Organization did not comment on Thursday about the undocumented workers.

Mr Trump made a crackdown on illegal immigration one of the central planks of his campaign and presidency.




"We didn't have one illegal immigrant on the job", Trump said then. And though we shouldn't assign worth to undocumented immigrants because of their labor - their contributions to the United States 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.

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.

His other properties have relied on foreign guest workers.

He also said that a supervisor hurled racial epithets at the women and threatened them with deportation to get more work out of them. "We call upon New Jersey's law enforcement community and federal authorities to investigate these allegations immediately and to help protect these courageous women and others who may now come forward". CBS News reached out to the White House but have not heard back. But companies are not required in most cases to take additional steps to verify the authenticity of documents.

"I'm exhausted of being humiliated and treated like a stupid person", she said in Spanish during a brief interview.

She says she washed and ironed Trump's white boxers, golf shirts, and khakis.
