NEW YORK - Undocumented immigrants canned from President Donald Trump's ritzy golf clubs in New York and New Jersey are crashing his 2020 campaign kickoff in Florida to shed light on what they consider his "cruelty and hypocrisy," their attorney told the Daily News on Monday.

The five workers - who were axed along with scores of fellow undocumented Trump employees after The News and other outlets reported on their situation earlier this year - were set to travel to Orlando, Fla., Monday afternoon to hold a Tuesday morning press conference outside the Amway Center, where the president is expected to officially announce his re-election bid later in the day, said Anibal Romero, a lawyer for the immigrants.

Less than half of undocumented immigrants in US are from Mexico for first time in decades

Less than half of undocumented immigrants in US are from Mexico for first time in decades Less than half of the total number of undocumented immigrants already in the U.S. are from Mexico for the first time in over 50 years, according to a new analysis. New Pew Research Center estimates based on government data conclude that out of 10.5 million undocumented immigrants in the country in 2017, 4.9 million originally came from Mexico.The number of undocumented Mexican immigrants in the country declined largely because more left the country than arrived, though the group remains a strong plurality among those coming to the U.S. without authorization from other Latin American countries.

"No one knows better than Trump himself that immigrants are hardworking individuals who support a multitude of industries across the country, including his restaurants, golf courses, wineries and hotels," said Romero, who represents 44 undocumented immigrants who used to work at Trump properties.

"And no one knows better than the undocumented workers who worked for Trump, how urgent it is for Congress to pass humane and sensible immigration laws so that immigrants can continue contributing to their communities and to our nation, just like they did for Trump and his family."

The group who's heading down for the Tuesday rally consists of Sandra Diaz and Victorina Morales, former housekeepers at Trump's Bedminster, N.J., club; Wiston Garcia, a former dishwasher at Trump's Westchester County club; Margarita Cruz, a former housekeeper at the Westchester club, and Adela Garcia, also a former housekeeper at the Westchester club.

Orlando Sentinel announces endorsement for whichever Democrat takes on Trump In 2020

Orlando Sentinel announces endorsement for whichever Democrat takes on Trump In 2020 Orlando's largest news organization announced they are endorsing whoever challenges President Trump in the general election regardless of who it is. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); “We’re here to announce our endorsement for president in 2020, or, at least, who we’re not endorsing: Donald Trump,” the Orlando Sentinel said in its Tuesday staff editorial. “Because there’s no point pretending we would ever recommend that readers vote for Trump.

They will be joined by advocates and union leaders to tell their stories and advocate for a "path to citizenship" for the 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the U.S., Romero said.

"These workers, many of whom were subjected to workplace abuse and wage theft, spoke out in order to shed light on the hypocrisy and cruelty of Trump and his attacks on immigrants," Romero said.

A spokeswoman for Trump's 2020 campaign did not return a request for comment.

The president made clear last year he was running for reelection in 2020, but Tuesday's event has been billed by his campaign as the official announcement. First Lady Melania Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and Second Lady Karen Pence will be in attendance.

Many of Romero's clients allege higher-up Trump managers knew about their undocumented status but let them work anyway while using their precarious situation as leverage to underpay them and not give them with benefits.

Some of Romero's clients also say managers helped them procure fake immigration papers - which could be a federal crime.

The Trump Organization has consistently denied the allegations.

The New Jersey attorney general's office and the New York attorney general's office are looking into some of the allegations made by the former Trump employees, according to sources familiar with the matter.
