Donald Trump’s State of the Union speech tonight will probably feature a shit-ton of anti-immigrant lies and some sort of bravado about protecting U.S. workers. But back here in reality, the Trump Organization has been firing undocumented immigrant workers at his golf courses en masse, not because he’s interested in following U.S. law, but because he’s been caught. At least 18 workers have been canned from five locations since December, the Washington Post reports: “The wave of dismissals raises questions about how widely the president’s company has relied on undocumented workers, even as he has denounced illegal immigration in fiery terms and demanded the construction of a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.”

The answer is: a lot, and going back decades. These workers have cleaned and washed Trump’s clothes, prepared food, and tended to the overall upkeep of several of Trump’s clubs, some for years now. Some have said that supervisors knew full well that their documents were fake, and others that supervisors themselves helped them get the papers (investigators now have some of those fake green cards). At least one has made a serious charge of verbal and physical abuse by management. All, however, expose Trump’s rank immigration hypocrisy.

While one of the former workers has been able to adjust her immigration status since her employment at Trump’s Bedminster club, the others remain vulnerable to retaliation from the notoriously thin-skinned president. Senator Robert Menendez of New Jersey, who recently met with some of these brave workers, called on the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security to protect them during any ongoing investigation of the Trump Organization.

“Because the individuals I met with and others that may step forward appear to be potential witnesses to a crime and may provide the evidence necessary to conduct an appropriate investigation,” Menendez wrote in a letter, “I urge you to consider requesting or supporting authorization for them to remain in the U.S. during your necessary investigation.” At least two of those workers, Victorina Morales and Sandra Diaz, will be face to face with their former employer on Tuesday, as guests at the State of the Union.

10. Then fire those bosses

Or, see if the chain leads all the way to the top. Let anyone taking Trump's money be grilled on just how far up the fraud went.

8. So, these are the jobs his base is dying to work for, do I have that right???


After all that is one of his main message is it not?


These immigrants are taking away all the jobs that are suppose to be for white people. That's what I hear whenever he is spewing his outrage over immigration.

He's such a phony!

9. The republican role model cheats, lies about it, and now ditches & blames the workers

republican Dirty Donny*'s skanky businesses hired these workers knowingly, scoffing at the law, paid them shit, lied to everyone about it, and like raving hypocrites they went political panicky condemning the "illegal brown workers invading America" while they themselves were making it happen.

Then when they get caught red handed, they ditch the workers and blame them.

How republican is that?
