Trump Organization accidentally admits it wasn’t using E-Verify to check immigration statuses

Published

on

In a statement about the 18 employees of President Donald Trump’s golf courses, the company inadvertently admitted to not using the E-Verify system to confirm the documented status of the workers.

“We are very proud of our diverse workforce,” the statement from the Trump Organization said. “Our associates mean everything to us and are the heart and soul of our company. We also take our obligations as an employer seriously and regularly conduct audits to ensure full and complete compliance with all legal requirements.”

There were two reports last month where workers confessed publicly they used falsified documents to work for the Trump golf course.

“Upon learning of these claims, we — as a result of this review and to ensure our absolute compliance with the law, any employee who provided falsified documents was immediately terminated,” the statement continued. “Obviously terminating one’s employment is never something we wish to do. Many of our employees have been with us for years and are an extension of our family. Still, after being confronted with the issue, we had no choice.

“To prevent this from happening again, we will soon be instituting E-Verify to all applicable properties and will continue to take swift and appropriate action where necessary,” the statement closed.

The president has been dogged in his pursuit of undocumented immigrants. He’s ranted and raved about them from the moment he announced he was running for the presidency.

A question that Washington Post columnist Max Boot asked on CNN Monday was why Trump wasn’t using E-Verify from the beginning.
