Lawyer: Undocumented Trump Workers ‘Threatened With Deportation’ By Staff

The undocumented immigrants who are reportedly maids at President Donald Trump’s Bedminster, New Jersey golf club have been abused and threatened with deportation since Trump was elected president, their lawyer told CNN Thursday.

“In the beginning everything was great,” attorney Anibal Romero told CNN. “Since he became president, the staff at the club has in a way become empowered. And now there is plenty of abuse, they have, at least Vicky (Morales) has been physically assaulted on numerous occasions. They have been both — they were both threatened with deportation. They were coerced into doing work they didn’t want to do.”

Romero also told CNN that his clients are not just simply maids at the golf club, but are personally responsible for cleaning the rooms of Trump and his daughter Ivanka Trump.
