A story by Miriam Jordan of the New York Times exposed the abuse of undocumented workers at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey.
 
The explosive story raises serious and troubling questions about the employment practices and mistreatment of workers by Trump’s operation. It is imperative that federal and state authorities launch and conduct a full investigation into Trump Organization abuse and criminality related to its Bedminster workforce, while ensuring that we protect the workers, starting with those who have shined a light on Trump’s lawlessness and hypocrisy.
 
Let’s pause to reflect on the courage it took for Victorina Morales and Sandra Diaz to come forward to blow the whistle on the most powerful man in the world. That alone is a testament to the power of the American idea, where every voice should count, regardless of background and birthplace. 
 
In fact, the workers embody America’s foundational notions of democratic participation and fair treatment for all more than the family that exploits their labor and takes advantage of their immigration status.  
 
As a politician, Trump rails against undocumented immigrant workers. As a business owner, Trump relies on and mistreats undocumented immigrant workers. This extraordinary hypocrisy fits a larger pattern of lawlessness from the President and his businesses that screams out for a full and fair investigation.
