The Trump Organization has been cracking down on undocumented workers at its various golf clubs in the wake of news reports that revealed some of them had worked at Trump’s businesses for years as the President railed against the presence of undocumented immigrants in the U.S.

According to a Monday Washington Post report, at least 18 workers have been fired across five golf clubs. Many seasonal workers may not be rehired this spring.

Some of them say that it’s the first time in many years the business has shown any interest in their documentation.
