Illegal Immigrants Allegedly Washed Donald Trump’s Underwear at Golf Club
Two women, who claim to be illegal immigrants, say that they faced abuse and threats while working at President Trump’s golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey.
The employees say that due to their immigration status they were constantly harassed.
“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 reports that the women were identified as Victoria Morales, who came to the US illegally in 1999, and Sandra Diaz, who was undocumented when she worked there between 2010 and 2013.
Morales state that she has cleaned Trump’s golf trophies and underwear. She claims that the staff continuously ridiculed 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.
“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 administration has not yet commented on the accusations.
