CITIZENSHIP/DHS/IMMIGRATION/TRUMP BUSINESS: “After months of silence, President Trump responded on Friday [7-5-19] to reports that the Trump Organization has employed dozens of undocumented immigrants by saying that he doesn’t know whether the organization does or not…The New York Times first reported in December that Victorina Morales, a Guatemalan undocumented immigrant, and several others living in the country unlawfully, had been employed at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J., where Mr. Trump was heading on Friday. Many undocumented workers at other Trump properties, including resorts in Philadelphia, Westchester County, N.Y., and Jupiter, Fla., have come forward since then and said they were also employed using phony Social Security numbers and green cards. After the revelations, the Trump Organization said that it had begun to use E-Verify, an electronic verification system that checks documents provided by new hires against Social Security Administration and Department of Homeland Security records to identify fakes, at all properties.”
