Trump allegedly had illegal immigrants clean his underwear, trophies

Two women, who are illegal immigrants, claim they were subject to abuse and threats while working at President Trump’s exclusive golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey — and they want authorities to investigate the allegations.

The domestic employees, one who still works at the club, said they served directly for the Trump family and were repeatedly harassed by their superiors due to their immigration status, according to their lawyer.

“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,” immigration lawyer Anibal Romero said in a statement.

“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.”

The New York Times identified the women 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.

Morales, who expects to be fired from her job, said that she has cleaned President Trump’s golf trophies and underwear. She claims that the staff routinely mocked her nationality despite knowingly hiring her as undocumented.

“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 told The Times. “We sweat it out to attend to his every need and have to put up with his humiliation.”

The women claimed that there were many other undocumented immigrants working at the Bedminster club.

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.

“Many of the abuses to which my clients were subjected constitute crimes. We call upon New Jersey’s law enforcement community and federal authorities to investigate these allegations immediately.”

The Trump Organization did not comment on Thursday about the undocumented workers.
