Don Lemon Calls Trump ‘Hypocrite-in-Chief’ for Employing Undocumented Immigrants

A woman who has worked for President Donald Trump for years as a housekeeper at his New Jersey golf resort told The New York Times that she's not the only unauthorised immigrant who works for the president, and that she feels hurt by his rhetoric on immigration.

The Trump National Golf Club is home to green lawns, sparkling water features - and illegal immigrants working for the resort. Sanda Diaz, a Costa Rican native, told the Times that she was also an illegal immigrant when she worked at the club from 2010 until 2013.

However, the women told the newspaper that at least two supervisors at the club were aware and took steps to help them avoid detection and hold on to their jobs.

Still, she said she got by with falsified documents and a knack for cleaning according to Trump's highly specific standards.

The revelation comes despite Trump's hardline stance on immigration - which has led to accusations of him villifying illegal immigrants, with the president's tough talk forming a key part of his 2016 presidential campaign.
