Mr. Trump has long acknowledged that running the hospitality industry on a tight supply of American labor is extraordinarily difficult -- the reason Mar-a-Lago has frequently turned to legal guest workers for jobs that typically span only, in the case of Florida, the pleasant winter months.

In March, seven veteran maintenance workers at Trump National Jupiter, the golf club 18 miles north of Mar-a-Lago that Mr. Trump purchased in 2012, were informed that the work force was being reorganized. Workers had until March 22 to provide proof that they were legally eligible to work in the United States, they were told.

2. trump's shitty golf courses are going to start looking like the lawns around here

Now that all the local landscapers have had their workers deported.

I guess landscape maintenance of your own home is another of those jobs Americans just don't want to do.
