Lawyer for undocumented Trump Organization workers seeks investigation

Undocumented maids at President Trump's N.J. golf club say boss called them racial slurs threatened deportation

During the campaign, the Washington Post reported that Trump relied in part on illegal immigrant workers as part of the $200 renovation of a luxury hotel in Washington, D.C. Trump denied it, saying: "I didn't hire one illegal immigrant to build Trump International Hotel on Pennsylvania Avenue, ' getting the property's name in his response".

"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.

'If an employee submitted false documentation in an attempt to circumvent the law, they will be terminated immediately, ' the Trump Organization told the paper. She claims her bosses knew she was not authorized to live in the USA but hired her anyway.

Their lawyer, Romero, said Morales was hurt by Trump's comments disparaging immigrants here illegally as violent criminals.

'You did a really great job, ' he told Morales at one point, giving her a $100 bill. 'We sweat it out to attend to his every need and have to put up with his humiliation'.

In separate, hourslong interviews in Spanish, Morales and Diaz provided detailed accounts of their work at the club and their interactions with management, including Trump.

"I never imagined, as an immigrant from the countryside in Guatemala, that I would see such important people close up", Morales tells The Times, which describes her as a "diminutive woman with only two years of education who came to the United States speaking no English".

Their attorney Anibal Romero claims at least a dozen undocumented immigrants are on the club's payroll which, if true, conflicts with the president's position on illegal immigration. In addition to calling for a wall on the Mexican border, he has urged companies to screen workers more carefully. Because falsifying these documents is so easy, E-Verify, which is required in 22 states, goes the extra step of checking them against records kept by the Social Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.

"Any person who runs for any elected office should immediately sign up for E-Verify for any employee situation they have, whether they're running their own businesses, whether they're hiring labor at home, whatever it is, just as a matter of pure common sense", said Rosemary Jenks, government relations manager for NumbersUSA, which has long called for E-Verify to be made mandatory for all businesses. She understands she could be deported.

She said she is certain that her employers - perhaps even Trump - knew of her unlawful status all along.

Still, she said she got by with falsified documents and a knack for cleaning according to Trump's highly specific standards.

"I ask myself, is it possible that this señor thinks we have papers?" "Why wouldn't he figure it out?"
