Report: Undocumented Employees Fired from Philly Trump Golf Club

The Trump Organization has reportedly fired more undocumented workers, this time at its golf club in Pine Hill, New Jersey. The New York Times reports that about five workers at the club, known as Trump National Golf Club Philadelphia, were fired or told not to return to work. Two of the five were reportedly seasonal employees who were scheduled to return in the spring, and one source told the Times many others are expected to get fired in the coming weeks. “Just like that, I got fired,” kitchen worker Victor Reyes told the newspaper. “The manager called me and asked, ‘Victor, are you legal?’ I said, ‘No, I am not legal.’ It surprised me because I knew he knew that I was illegal. I have worked for him 16 years and then he asks me.” A Trump Organization spokesperson declined to comment to the Times about the Pine Hill firings, but claimed after earlier firings in New York and New Jersey clubs that they had been duped by the false documents of their employees. “Our employees are like family, but when presented with fake documents, an employer has little choice,” Eric Trump, an executive vice president with the Trump Organization, said earlier this week.
