NYT Admits Trump Hotels Tightened Policy Against Hiring Illegals in 2015

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.

The White House declined to comment to Business Insider on Morales' interview, but the Trump Organisation told The Times in a statement that the company uses "very strict hiring practices".

"Any person who runs for any elected office should immediately sign up for E-Verify for any employee situation they have, whether they're running their own businesses, whether they're hiring labor at home, whatever it is, just as a matter of pure common sense", said Rosemary Jenks, government relations manager for NumbersUSA, which has long called for E-Verify to be made mandatory for all businesses.

CNN's Don Lemon called Donald Trump the "hypocrite-in-chief" on Thursday, after The New York Times reported a housekeeper and some other employees at the president's New Jersey golf club are undocumented immigrants. She is now a legal resident of the United States. She's worked for Trump since 2013, and she now earns $13 an hour. Both said Trump was kind to them and gave them cash tips on occasion.

In fact, she was even given an official certificate of appreciation by the Trump White House for her "outstanding" support in taking care of the president during one of his visits to the resort.

However, the women told the newspaper that at least two supervisors at the club were aware and took steps to help them avoid detection and hold on to their jobs.

Morales said she started working at the resort in 2013, when she applied with phony papers.

According to Yahoo News, the lawyer representing two undocumented immigrants working at one of President Trump's golf resorts is asking New Jersey officials to investigate their treatment.

So will Trump's supporters, the ones who chant "Build the wall!" at his rallies and thrill to every attack he makes on immigrants, be unsettled by any of this?

Sandra Diaz, 46, is a Costa Rica native who was undocumented when she worked at Bedminster from 2010 to 2013.

Trump has consistently railed against the threat that "illegals" pose to the country he leads and has suggested extreme measures to secure the southern border in an effort to keep undocumented migrant workers like Morales out of the United States.

'I ask myself, is it possible that this señor thinks we have papers? Romero said his client has not been contacted by USA immigration authorities nor charged with any crimes in the United States. "He knows we don't speak English", Morales said. Trump used his national security powers to put in place regulations that denied asylum to anyone caught crossing illegally, but a judge has halted that change as a lawsuit progresses. "Why wouldn't he figure it out?"
