Trump golf course housekeeper is undocumented immigrant: NYT

Source: The Hill

A woman who has worked for years as a maid at President Trump’s New Jersey golf club is an undocumented immigrant, The New York Times reported Thursday.

The news outlet profiled Victorina Morales, who reportedly crossed the border illegally in 1999 and was hired at Trump’s Bedminster Golf Club in 2013. She told the news outlet she used “phony” immigration papers to secure employment.

The Times reported that Morales has "made Trump’s bed, cleaned his toilet and dusted his crystal golf trophies" during her time working at Bedminster.

The revelation comes as the Trump administration cracks down on illegal immigration, one of the hallmarks of the president's agenda. Trump himself has repeatedly used vitriolic rhetoric to describe immigrants.

17. Hey, since she is illegally employed, does that mean her NDA is invalid & she can spill the beans?

.

House maids can tell how many people were sleeping in a bed and some of what they were doing.

8. That was the most shocking part of the article.

That guy plays golf like I play tight end for the NFL. He hits the ball like the class clown did in 9th-grade PE.

10. I remember he once claimed to have shot a really good score @ some tough course and ...

.... and some golf magazine said that his score was just about impossible because
it was 5 or 6 shots better than what PGA tour players shoot on the same course.

I don't really know about golf but watching him play tennis (I'm pretty good) is
down right funny. Bad strokes and moves like a beached whale.




1st stroke long
2nd stroke wide
3rd stroke into the net
4th stroke 2nd bounce

15. I hate to say this but

Trump can play tennis ... The Manner in which he comes over the ball is basically good.. The problem is that he
probably doesn't play much..
Trump has a good golf swing as well... The problem with Trump and golf is the fact that he's known cheater.. Big Time

18. R you kidding me?

That back hand is what we used to call chopping wood. With Serena feeding him
softballs he missed every shot. And the one he did kind of get in he did that on the
2nd bounce.

20. He did have some athletic accomplishments

at his military academy.

In addition to receiving an award for neatness.

Golf, however, not so much.

11. NY Times royally screwed this woman to get at Trump

Dude's going to punish her.

Ms. Morales expects she will have to leave her job as soon as her name and work status are made public. She understands she could be deported. But she also says she is certain that her employers — perhaps even Mr. Trump — knew of her unlawful status all along.

“I ask myself, is it possible that this señor thinks we have papers? He knows we don’t speak English,” Ms. Morales said. “Why wouldn’t he figure it out?”

13. no, the NY Times didn't "royally screw" them, they came forward on their own.

they knew the risks and I applaud them for being so brave.

they could have kept quiet, but if you actually read the piece you will see that she stated that she couldn't keep quiet when the orange asshole started his anti-immigrant bullshit.

12. Poor woman, I feel for her.

Why the hell did the media expose her? She'll likely be deported and probably without her family. Why didn't the NYT expose Devin Nunes' family farm in Iowa instead?

In reality, it would have been wise for her to seek employment elsewhere after tRump's election to avoid exposure.

I feel we're all hypocrites in a way because for decades, we've all been benefiting from the work of undocumented laborers. That is, if we have eaten food, stayed in a hotel or needed a roof on our house, for example.

21. Yeah, the media's lack of interest

in colossal hypocrite Nunes' family farm--[link:https://www.esquire.com/news-politics/a23471864/devin-nunes-family-farm-iowa-california/|]which is staffed by undocumented immigrants--frosts me.

Another hypocritical puke gets a complete pass from the media.

14. republicans lie and cheat all the time

so this is to be expected - the usual hypocritical, deceitful shit republcians pull all time. republicans imagine they are 'special' and unlike regular Americans, and so they can do any damn thing they want.

19. Hopefully she will be hired by someone else...

albeit illegally, but at least she would have an income until trump's brownshirts come to deport her.
