Lawyer says 2 Trump workers faced abuse

She also stated that there are many others undocumented workers employed at the golf club.

"We have tens of thousands of employees across our properties and have very strict hiring practices", Trump Organization spokeswoman Amanda Miller wrote in an email, without specifically addressing the article about Morales.

Two women hired to clean at one of US President Donald Trump's golf resorts in New Jersey say they were in the country illegally when they got their jobs, supervisors knew it and that many employees there also lack legal documents, according to a report in The New York Times. Romero said his client has not been contacted by US immigration authorities nor charged with any crimes in the United States.

"After the family separation humanitarian crisis, the racist fear-mongering during the midterms, and the violent tear-gassing of children seeking asylum, it should come as no surprise that Trump executes his campaign of hate and division while profiting off the backs of undocumented and vulnerable workers", she said.

"This isn't a hotel with 300 employees - they were both in charge of cleaning the president's house", said Romero, referring to a guest house on the property set aside for Trump. "We call upon New Jersey's law enforcement community and federal authorities to investigate these allegations immediately and to help protect these fearless women and others who may now come forward".

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.

'We are exhausted of the abuse, the insults, the way he talks about us when he knows that we are here helping him make money, ' Morales said.

Ms Morales, who earns US$13 an hour, said employees had become increasingly upset by Mr Trump's negative rhetoric about Hispanic immigrants and said a supervisor berated them as "stupid illegal immigrants".

She said she didn't have proper documentation, and she used false Social Security and permanent resident cards. So, how is the Trump Organization employing someone like Morales, and probably countless others like her?

President Donald Trump speaks to the media before departing from the White House on December 7, for Missouri.

The lawyer says the two are considering a lawsuit against the Trump Organization for workplace abuse and discrimination. But companies are not required in most cases to take additional steps to verify the authenticity of documents. She understands she could be deported.

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

"I ask myself, is it possible that this señor thinks we have papers?"

"My clients are willing to cooperate with federal authorities and with state authorities so they can provide details", Romero said. "Why wouldn't he figure it out?"
