Following recent reports that Trump has employed undocumented immigrants for years at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, the state attorney general's office has launched an investigation.
More specifically, the attorney general is investigating whether officials at Trump's club have committed fraud by creating fake documents for their immigrant employees, among other things.
Anibal Romero, a Newark-based attorney, said Friday the state attorney general’s office recently reached out to him about claims that five of his clients were routinely threatened and called racial slurs while working at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster.
The women — all of whom are or were undocumented immigrants — also accused their supervisor at the extravagant estate set them up with fraudulent work permits and threatened to report them to federal authorities if they spoke out. [...]
Citing policy, a spokeswoman for the New Jersey AG’s office declined to confirm or deny whether an investigation has been opened into the Trump club.
The undocumented woman who came forward last week and told the New York Times that she's been Trump's personal housekeeper at Bedminster for the last five years is apparently still employed there today.
That might raise some questions if Trump were headed there this week, but he has elected to spend the next two weeks in Florida at his Mar-a-Lago resort.
There's no doubt in my mind that the Trumps have also knowingly hired undocumented immigrants at the Mar-a-Lago, but we don't know of any specific allegations at the moment.
For the record, I do not personally care if companies hire undocumented immigrants as long as they're paid appropriate wages, but with Trump we're dealing with an unparalleled level of hypocrisy. He based his entire campaign and his time in office on deporting as many immigrants as possible. You know, except the ones who work for him.
