Two female domestic employees, who work at President Trump’s exclusive golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, and who are also illegal immigrants claim they were subject to abuse and threats because of their immigration status.
the two females identified as Victorina Morales, who came to the US illegally in 1999, and Sandra Diaz, a native of Costa Rica who was undocumented when she worked there between 2010 and 2013 were serving the Trump family and were repeatedly harassed by their superiors.
immigration lawyer Anibal Romero said in a statement:“While working at Donald Trump’s estate in Bedminster and interacting with the President and his immediate family, my clients and others were repeatedly subjected to abuse, called racial epithets and threatened with deportation,”adding:“Ironically, the threats often came from the same supervisor who had employed them despite knowing their undocumented status and even provided them with forged documents.”
Morales claimed that she has cleaned President Trump’s golf trophies and underwear while being routinely mocked by the staff for her nationality.
“We are tired of the abuse, the insults, the way he talks about us when he knows that we are here helping him make money,” she said. “We sweat it out to attend to his every need and have to put up with his humiliation.”
a lot of undocumented immigrants are working at the Bedminster club under the same circumstances.
Romero, the women’s lawyer, said that the abusive behavior needs to be addressed by law enforcement.
“This toxic environment was designed to intimidate these women, leaving them fearful for their safety and the safety of their families,” Romero said.
there was no comment from The Trump Organization about the undocumented workers.
