New Jersey’s attorney general allegedly has evidence that President Donald Trump’s Garden State golf club may have committed immigration crimes by handing out fraudulent green cards and Social Security numbers to undocumented employees.
Anibal Romero, counsel to several undocumented immigrants who worked at the Trump National Golf Club, told the New York Daily News about the evidence in a report published on Saturday. He said that special counsel Robert Mueller and the FBI are also aware of the evidence and have been involved in the state’s probe into the golf club.
Romero is the attorney for Victorina Morales and Sandra Diaz, two women who worked at Trump’s golf course as undocumented immigrants. They made headlines earlier this month for coming forward and revealing their illegal status, showcasing the hypocrisy in the president’s antagonistic immigration remarks. Morales is still an undocumented immigrant, but Diaz became a U.S. resident after working for the Trump golf course.
Morales told the New York Times that she recalls the golf club hired many illegal workers. She said she and Diaz came forward because they were “tired of the abuse, the insults, the way he talks about us when he knows that we are helping him make money. We sweat it out to attend to his every need and have to put up with his humiliation.”
Romero told the Daily News that he has been in contact with prosecutors from the New Jersey attorney general’s office. Romero said he gave the prosecutors fake green cards and Social Security numbers that golf club employees had allegedly given to the two women when they worked there.
