Lawyer says 2 Trump workers faced abuse

A woman working as a housekeeper at President Donald Trump's golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey - trusted to make Trump's bed and iron the president's clothes - revealed that she is an unauthorized immigrant in an interview with the New York Times.

The Times reports that Victorina Morales and Sandra Diaz cleaned at Trump's resort in Bedminster, New Jersey, for years despite not having proper documentation.

A lawyer for two undocumented workers hired by a resort owned by President Donald Trump says that one of them was called "donkey" and "dog" by a supervisor and threatened with deportation to get her to work harder.

The revelation comes despite Trump's hardline stance on immigration - which has led to accusations of him villifying illegal immigrants, with the president's tough talk forming a key part of his 2016 presidential campaign. He even boasted during his presidential campaign that not a single illegal immigrant worked for his organization.

Morales told The Times that she understood she could be fired or deported by going public with her story.

Both women were described by the Times as finding Trump demanding as an employer, but kind.

Morales and Diaz approached The New York Times through their New Jersey lawyer, Anibal Romero, who is representing them on immigration matters. Trump at the time denied hiring undocumented workers to build the hotel, according to CBS News.

He added: " Manchester United dropped more points in their draw at Southampton , but it was not a huge surprise". Aaron Ramsey starts in an attacking midfield role while Matteo Guendouzi will play alongside Lucas Torreira .

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.

Mr. Trump's golf courses in Charlotte, Los Angeles and Miami, his hotel in Washington, D.C., and a hotel he operated in NY are signed up.

Ms Diaz said she washed and ironed Mr Trump's white boxers, golf shirts, khaki pants, sheets and towels with special detergent in a separate machine. "If an employee submitted false documentation in an attempt to circumvent the law, they will be terminated immediately". "We call upon New Jersey's law enforcement community and federal authorities to investigate these allegations immediately and to help protect these fearless women and others who may now come forward". She said he was "meticulous about everything" and if he arrived early, "everyone runs around like crazy".

But she added that she suspects Trump is aware of her immigration status.

'I ask myself, is it possible that this señor thinks we have papers? Beck said Trump has "let us down in his promise to help American workers" because he hasn't "put his shoulder behind a mandatory E-Verify bill".

"We didn't have one illegal immigrant on the job", Trump said then. "Why wouldn't he figure it out?"
