Lawyer for undocumented Trump Organization workers seeks investigation

A undocumented immigrant who is a maid at President Donald Trump's Bedminster, New Jersey golf club spoke out to The New York Times about the "humiliation" she has endured as a result of his rhetoric about immigration.

Morales and Sandra Diaz, a former Bedminster employee who is now a legal US resident, reached out to the Times through their lawyer, who is representing them in "immigration matters".

One of the undocumented immigrants, a woman named Victorina Morales who hails from Guatemala, tells the Times that in the past she has been responsible for making President Donald Trump's bed and cleaning his toilet. Sanda Diaz, a Costa Rican native, told the Times that she was also an illegal immigrant when she worked at the club from 2010 until 2013.

A spokeswoman for the golf club said in a statement that any employee found to have submitted false documentation would be immediately fired.

'There are many people without papers, ' said Diaz.

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

His administration has continued its push for a border wall at the nation's southern border. An employee of the golf course drives her and a group of others to work every day, she says, because it is known that they can not legally obtain driver's licenses. "If he arrives suddenly, everyone runs around like crazy" Diaz told the New York Times.

Morales said she has been hurt by Trump's public comments since he became president, including equating Latin American immigrants with violent criminals.

"We are exhausted of the abuse, the insults, the way he talks about us when he knows that we are here helping him make money", she said.

Both women were described by the Times as finding Trump demanding, but kind. She also made available her Individual Taxpayer Identification, a nine-digit number that is issued by the IRS to foreigners to enable them to file taxes without being permanent residents of the United States. Morales has applied for asylum protections.

"I ask myself, is it possible that this señor thinks we have papers?"

Trump has called for a crackdown on immigrants in the country illegally. They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with [them].

Though Cortes then acknowledged that Trump is "aware that those businesses are largely operated that way", he said Morales' act was grounds for her firing.

"My clients are willing to cooperate with federal authorities and with state authorities so they can provide details", Romero said.
