NEW YORK — The New York Times is reporting that two women hired to clean at one of President Donald Trump’s resorts say they were in the country illegally when they got their jobs, supervisors knew it and that many other employees are also without legal documents.
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. Morales says she used false Social Security and permanent resident cards.
The report also says a resort supervisor hurled racial epithets at the women and threatened them with deportation.
The Trump Organization says it has strict hiring practices and that it will fire anyone who submits false documents.
Trump has railed against undocumented workers and called for companies to screen employees more carefully.
