Trump paid "illegal" $10 an hour to clean his toilet

Trump paid

Victorina Morales, an immigrant from Guatemala, and Sandra Diaz, a native of Costa Rica, told the New York Times that they both worked for years at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J., along with several other undocumented immigrants, and that their supervisors knew their employment violated us law.

Morales reportedly immigrated to the United States illegally from Guatemala in 1999 and in 2013 began working at the Trump National Golf Club, where she is still on the payroll.

But his marquee Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida is not signed up, nor are his golf courses in Virginia, Philadelphia or Bedminster, New Jersey - where, The New York Times reported Thursday, some illegal immigrants have been working for years. But there is no evidence that Trump or his executives knew about this.

Trump's campaign was buoyed by his harsh stance on illegal immigration and promises of a border wall paid for by Mexico.

Morales tells the Times that she was motivated to speak up because she was sick of hearing the president attack undocumented immigrants while on the campaign trail.

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.

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 have tens of thousands of employees across our properties and have very strict hiring practices", a Trump Organization spokesperson told Fox News.

This was by none other than Dennis Lillee. "But at the same time I would like to respect the opposition". I'm sensing India feel that. "From what I've watched over the years, he seems to trouble him the most".

Morales and Diaz approached The New York Times through their New Jersey lawyer, Anibal Romero, who is representing them on immigration matters.

Two months after Mr. Trump's inauguration, in March 2017, Ms. Morales said that she and other workers received a new employee handbook.

The two are now considering a lawsuit against the Trump Organization for workplace abuse and discrimination.

Mr Trump will meet House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer at the White House on Tuesday to discuss the next step to avoiding that result.

"We didn't have one illegal immigrant on the job", Trump said then.

The Trump Organization, which owns the golf course, did not comment to the New York Times about the women profiled in the report.

"I never imagined, as an immigrant from the countryside in Guatemala, that I would see such important people close up", she said, in Spanish - though she also complained to the paper about Mr. She understands she could be deported. "We call upon New Jersey's law enforcement community and federal authorities to investigate these allegations immediately".

Once, Trump asked her to follow him to the clubhouse where he ran his fingers over picture frames and tables checking for dust.
