Shocking Trump gave an illegal immigrant a job and treated her well, and the New York Times will have none of it – Washington Examiner

No good deed goes unpunished, even when the beneficiary is in the country illegally.
The New York Times on Thursday told the story of two women, Victorina Morales and Sandra Diaz, who were illegal immigrants with fraudulent papers when they were hired to work at President Trump’s National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J.
Morales is still in the country illegally and still employed by the club. Diaz worked there from 2010 to 2013 and now has proper legal documentation.
Here’s how the Times characterized their interactions with Trump, a convenient 17 paragraphs in: “Both women described the president as demanding but kind, sometimes offering hefty tips. … Ms. Morales has had dealings with Mr. Trump that go back years, and her husband has confirmed that she would on occasion come home jubilant because the club owner had paid her a compliment, or bestowed on her a $50 or sometimes a $100 tip.”
Morales also recalled a day in 2013 that she was washing the club’s pro shop high windows and Trump pulled up in a golf cart. Because the tops of the windows were out of Morales’ reach, Trump asked for the towel so he could wipe them for her.
She said that Trump asked where she was from. “Guatemalans are hard-working people,” she recalled him telling her, before handing her a $50 bill.
Diaz, the other worker, said she was responsible for cleaning Trump’s home on the property and doing his laundry. She recalled a similar encounter in 2012.
After inspecting the clubhouse, he told her, “You did a really great job,” and gave her a $100 tip.
To get back at this monster, the New York Times carried a piece featuring these women as Trump critics.
“We are tired of the abuse, the insults, the way he talks about us when he knows that we are here helping him make money,” Morales said.
And because our laughable immigration system allows it, Morales is also considering a lawsuit.
She said after Trump launched his campaign for president in 2015, supervisors at the club were emboldened by his rhetoric on immigration to begin disparaging the workers, many of whom she said were in the country illegally, calling them things like “stupid, illegal immigrants.”
She said she didn’t plan to return to work after the Times published the story. Que bueno .
The episode cost Morales her job and it may have cost other people theirs, too.
Amanda Miller, a senior vice president at the Trump Organization, said in a statement to the Times, “If an employee submitted false documentation in an attempt to circumvent the law, they will be terminated immediately.”
