Trump Organization responds to claims it hired illegal immigrants

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".

Risking dismissal from her job and deportation from the United States, Victorina Morales expressed frustration over the president's frequently divisive comments about undocumented immigrants despite the "outstanding" support White House officials have told her she provided during his visits to the golf course. As President, Trump has pushed for increased border security and a merit-based immigration system.

Their lawyer provided CBS News with Morales' 2017 W-2 form, which lists her employer as Lamington Farm Club, the corporate name of Mr. Trump's golf course.

"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 told the Times.

The article suggests that Trump's refusal to question her status is evidence that he knew she was an illegal migrant, and that he is a hypocrite for employing illegals while championing pro-American reforms.

The Trump Organization hit back at a bombshell report in The New York Times that said President Trump's elite resorts had numerous illegal aliens as housekeeping, maintenance, and landscaping employees. "I said, 'I am from Guatemala.' He said, 'Guatemalans are hard-working people.'" The president then reached into his pocket and handed her a $50 bill. The president railed against illegal immigrants in the "caravan" during the campaign, and has referred to an "infestation" of immigration.

He added that there were more like the two workers he represents working for Trump without documents and stressed the management "absolutely" facilitated their illegal employment.

The Washington Post said in 2015 that it had interviewed workers during the construction of Trump International Hotel in Washington who said they had entered the country illegally.

She was hired at Trump's golf club in 2013 with phony documents. 'We sweat it out to attend to his every need and have to put up with his humiliation'.

"If any employee submitted false documentation in an attempt to circumvent the law, they will be terminated immediately", Miller said.

Morales acknowledged using falsified documents to the Times; she said supervisors at Bedminster helped her work there despite being undocumented. "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", Romero added.

Both women spoke to the newspaper - which Mr Trump has repeatedly referred to as "fake news" and the "failing New York Times" - after being introduced by their immigration attorney Anibal Romero.

Morales is seeking asylum, and is aware she could lose her job for taking her complaints to the press.
