(AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais, File) The Trump Organization hit back at a bombshell report in The New York Times that said President Trump’s elite resorts had numerous illegal aliens as housekeeping, maintenance, and landscaping employees.

“We have tens of thousands of employees across our properties and have very strict hiring practices. If any employee submitted false documentation in an attempt to circumvent the law, they will be terminated immediately,” a spokesperson for the Trump Organization told Fox News via email.

AP FACT CHECK: Trump wrong about illegal immigration costs

AP FACT CHECK: Trump wrong about illegal immigration costs President Donald Trump is spreading misleading numbers about the cost of illegal immigration.As he tries to pressure Democrats to fund his long-promised southern border wall, Trump is claiming the country loses $250 billion a year on illegal immigration. But it remained unclear Tuesday where Trump had found that number, which is dramatically higher than previous estimates.A look at his claim:TRUMP: "Could somebody please explain to the Democrats (we need their votes) that our Country losses (sic) 250 Billion Dollars a year on illegal immigration, not including the terrible drug flow. Top Border Security, including a Wall, is $25 Billion.

Trump refers to “ illegal immigrants ” during his speech. I do a search for “ illegal immigrants language undocumented” and start reading. A link from NPR describes the fight over terminology and quotes a Jonathan Rosa, a linguistic anthropologist at the University of Massachusetts.

The Times article spotlighted Victorina Morales, an undocumented immigrant from Guatemala, who has worked as a housekeeper at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, since 2013.

The Times reported that Morales has “made Trump’s bed, cleaned his toilet and dusted his crystal golf trophies.”

She said Trump would sometimes give her a $50 or $100 tip.

Morales, who reportedly crossed the American border illegally in 1999, said she’s hurt amid the Trump administration’s crackdown on undocumented immigrants.

“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 told The Times. “We sweat it out to attend to his every need and have to put up with his humiliation.”

Number of undocumented immigrants in USA falls to 12-year low, researchers say

WASHINGTON — President Trump proclaimed on Friday that the illegal entry of immigrants across the southern border of the United States was detrimental to the national interest, spurring tough changes that will deny asylum to all migrants who do not enter through official border crossings.

He has falsely claimed that Democrats are responsible for the practice. But the kind of pictures so feared by Mr. Trump ’s predecessors could end up defining a The White House is responding to criticism of its policy against illegal border crossings in four very distinct ways.Published OnJune 18

She said she didn’t have proper documentation, and she used false Social Security and permanent resident cards.

Morales told the news outlet she expects to be reprimanded severely with the report coming out.

“I ask myself, is it possible that this señor thinks we have papers? He knows we don’t speak English,” Morales told The Times. “Why wouldn’t he figure it out?”

Morales told The Times she is applying for asylum and is exploring a lawsuit claiming workplace abuse and discrimination.

Her lawyer, Anibel Romero, has called for federal and state investigations into the matter.

“This toxic environment was designed to intimidate these women, leaving them fearful for their safety and the safety of their families,” he said in a statement.

Trump has made border security a signature issue since he first began his presidential campaign on June 16, 2015, by saying: “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best... They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with [them]. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”

His administration has continued its push for a border wall at the nation's southern border.

Thousands of migrants have come up from Central America in recent weeks as part of caravans. Trump used his national security powers to put in place regulations that denied asylum to anyone caught crossing illegally, but a judge has halted that change as a lawsuit progresses.

Trump after Cohen plea deal: Mueller's 'illegal hoax' should be stopped 'immediately'.
President Trump called for special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation to "be ended immediately" Thursday evening. In a tweet, Trump quoted Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz, who had just made an appearance on Fox News. "Alan Dershowitz: 'These are not crimes. He (Mueller) has no authority to be a roving Commissioner. I don’t see any evidence of crimes.' This is an illegal Hoax that should be ended immediately. Mueller refuses to look at the real crimes on the other side. Where is the IG REPORT?" Trump tweeted. Alan Dershowitz: “These are not crimes.
