Trump golf club in NY fires 12 ‘illegal’ immigrant workers
New York:

A dozen immigrant workers at one of President Donald Trump’s golf clubs who are in the US illegally were fired this month even though managers had known about their legal status for years, a lawyer for the workers said Saturday.


As Trump railed during the partial government shutdown against immigrants coming into the country illegally, a manager at the Trump National Golf Club in Westchester County called a dozen immigrant workers into a room one by one January 18 and fired them, said lawyer Anibal Romero.

Many of them had worked at the club for a dozen or more years, he said, and managers knew they had submitted phony documents but looked the other way. “This is bogus. People have been there for 12, 13, 14 years,” said Romero. Romero, who also represents immigrant workers at Trump’s golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey, said he has called New York state authorities and the FBI to look into hiring practices at the New York club
