Housekeeper Victorina Morales, who worked at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J. for more than five years, shared her story with the New York Times as one of several undocumented immigrants who cleaned Trump's property and served clubgoers before and during Trump's presidency.
Why it matters: Morales, who risked deportation to tell her story, said she was in awe of being close to such important people, like cleaning the president’s villa while he watched TV nearby and seeing White House chief of staff John Kelly come to consult Trump. But while working, she concealed hurt from an administration that has fought for border security and pronounced anti-immigration rhetoric as a key political agenda, she said.
Details: There is no evidence that Trump himself or Trump Organization executives were aware of the employee's true immigration status.
