Illegal immigrants claim they worked at Donald Trump's golf course

Two highly trusted women employed at one of Donald Trump's golf courses have claimed they entered the United States illegally.

One of the women, 45-year-old Victorina Morales, said she came to the country from Guatemala and worked at the golf club for the past five years, which included cleaning the President's residence.

She says bosses at the golf course knew she was not allowed to work in the United States but hired her anyway.  One, club facilities manager Jorge Villafuerte, allegedly gave her money to get a fake Green card and social security card.

Sandra Diaz, another illegal immigrant who says she worked at the golf course, and Ms Morales have hired attorney Anibal Romero, who said there are at least dozen undocumented immigrants on the club's pay roll.

In a statement, the Trump Organisation said: "We have tens of thousands of employees across our properties and have very strict hiring practices. If any employee submitted false documentation in an attempt to circumvent the law, they will be terminated immediately".
