Housekeeper at Trump's NJ golf club details first family's laundry habits

Housekeeper at Trump's NJ golf club details first family's laundry habits

The New York Times reports that Morales admitted she isn't the only worker at the club who is in the country illegally either.

Morales expects that she and her colleagues will lose their jobs over this, but said they're willing to pay the price to come forward.

One supervisor, in the Times" words, "frequently made remarks about the employees' vulnerable legal status when critiquing their work ... sometimes calling them "stupid illegal immigrants' with less intelligence than a dog". 'We sweat it out to attend to his every need and have to put up with his humiliation'.

The worker, Victorina Morales, is a 45-year-old Guatemala native who says she came to the United States illegally across the southwestern border in 1999.

Morales said she chose to speak out because she felt exhausted of the president's unceasing vilification of immigrants.

Sandra Diaz said she also worked at the club while she was undocumented. When the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C. opened during his campaign in late 2016, Trump declared "we didn't have one illegal immigrant on the job".

Morales told The Times she is applying for asylum and is exploring a lawsuit claiming workplace abuse and discrimination.

Even some Republicans balk at spending more than the $1.6 billion for fencing and other security improvements already provided. McConnell told reporters in Louisville on Saturday it's up to Trump "to do a deal with the Democrats".

Victorina Morales, a Guatemalan immigrant, says in a bombshell interview that she cleaned Trump's toilet and dusted his golf trophies at the Bedminster club frequently visited by the president. She also shared with the Times that the president was particular about having his items, as well as Melania's and Barron's, washed with a "special detergent" in a washing machine separate from the rest of the club's residents.

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

The Trump Organization, which owns the golf course, did not comment specifically on Morales or Diaz.

"We have tens of thousands of employees across our properties and have very strict hiring practices", said the Trump Organisation in an emailed statement.

'If an employee submitted false documentation in an attempt to circumvent the law, they will be terminated immediately, ' the Trump Organization told the paper. CBS News reached out to the White House but have not heard back.

"My clients are willing to cooperate with federal authorities and with state authorities so they can provide details", Romero said. But companies are not required in most cases to take additional steps to verify the authenticity of documents. They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with [them].
