US President Donald Trump leaves little opportunity to whet the appetite for illegal immigrants. As an entrepreneur, he obviously benefits even from their precarious situation.
In a luxurious golf club owned by US President Donald Trump, according to a media report, migrants have worked without valid papers. Guatemala-based Victorina Morales and Sandra Diaz, now legally residing in the US, reported on their work at the New York Times Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey.
Morales was hired in 2013 with fake papers as a housekeeper. She cleaned the bathroom and made the bed of today's president driving sharp verbal attacks against illegal immigration.
According to Morales and Diaz, other migrants without valid papers work in the club. Supervisors made sure they did not fly. According to The New York Times, there is no evidence that Trump personally or managers of his Trump Organization knew about the events.
Verbal abuse of superiors
The Trump Organization, which bundles the business activities of the President's family, said it employed tens of thousands of people and set "very strict" standards in recruitment. "If any employee has submitted false documents to circumvent the law, he will be fired immediately." Morales and Diaz describe Trump as demanding but friendly in the report. Sometimes he tipped 50 or even $ 100.
Recently, however, in the face of Trump's aggressive rhetoric against illegal immigrants from Central America, the mood at the golf club's employees has deteriorated, Morales reports. Supervisors would call them "stupid illegal migrants." "We're tired of the insults and insults he talks about, though he knows we're helping him make some money," Morales said of the president.
According to the research institute Pew Research Center, around 7.8 million migrants without valid papers work in the US.
