Undocumented migrants work in Trump's club

Interviewed by the Times, Morales said she was routinely subjected to derogatory comments from a supervisor, and came forward out of anger over Trump's comments likening Central American immigrants to criminals.

Two women who cleaned rooms set aside for Trump at one of his golf resorts in New Jersey say they used false papers to get hired.

Anibal Romero, Morales' attorney, said he planned to help Morales file an asylum claim after her family in Guatemala was threatened and Morales' father-in-law was hacked to death in a machete attack. It is shameful to hear reports that while the President insults immigrants daily, his golf club employs undocumented workers to continue to serve the President's needs.

While President Donald Trump has pushed hardline immigration policies and vilified undocumented immigrants, his private club in New Jersey has employed people who managers allegedly knew were in the country illegally, The New York Times reported Thursday. In a statement, Anibal Romero, an attorney for Morales and Diaz, said that "while working there 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.This toxic environment was created to intimidate these women, leaving them fearful for their safety".

The Trump Organisation says it will fire any of its workers it learns is in the country illegally. "If any employee submitted false documentation in an attempt to circumvent the law, they will be terminated immediately", a Trump Organization spokesperson said in a statement.

The housekeeper even recalled a time in 2012 when Trump ran his finger around the edges of picture frames and over the surfaces of tables to check for dust.

Obviously Trump doesn't personally hire every housekeeper in his clubs (although one of these undocumented immigrants was ironing his underwear; that's how close to him they were).

Ms Morales said she was hired to work at the New Jersey resort for $10 an hour in 2013, after telling a supervisor she didn't have "good papers".

Trump's campaign was buoyed by his harsh stance on illegal immigration and promises of a border wall paid for by Mexico.

'You did a great job, ' Diaz said he told her - then he handed her a $100 bill.

Jose Mourinho refuses question from Manchester United in-house TV station
United face Arsenal sitting seventh in the table, 16 points behind leaders Manchester City and eight adrift of the top four. Mourinho also addressed recent reports that he had called midfielder Pogba "a virus" in front of the rest of the team.

But throughout his campaign and his administration, Morales, 45, has been reporting for work at Trump's golf course in Bedminster, where she is still on the payroll.

It has been five years now, and Morales told reporters that her employers and possibly Trump - a man who has publicly condemned people like her- must know she's working illegally.

Her lawyer, Romero, has called for federal and state investigations into the matter.

She said the same supervisor, who is unnamed in the story, had provided her with forged documents.
