Trump continued to spread lies about immigrants during his State of the Union address.
“The president was pushing his immigration agenda big-time. And he made a point of drawing on social divides,” Cuomo said.
“[Trump is] a part of the problem when it comes to immigration, as he sees it because he hires illegal workers. Not once, but for years. Not one place, but many. At least the golf clubs, at least five of them have hired undocumented workers,” Cuomo said.
Cuomo then interviewed immigration lawyer Anibal Romero, who is representing about two dozen undocumented workers at Trump’s golf courses.
“I have seen pay stubs for all 25 clients,” Ramiro said. “And what’s interesting is, all of my clients were not paid health benefits. And according to them, other workers were paid health benefits, retirement plans. My question is, why weren’t the undocumented immigrants paid health benefits?”
“We are talking about a large number of people who lost their jobs. And again, that’s why we’ve been asking for a complete and thorough investigation. A review of business records will show that they have hired numerous undocumented immigrants throughout the years,” he said.

Walkouts as Roman Polanski wins best director at French Oscars
Roman Polanski won best director for "An Officer and a Spy" at a fractious ceremony for the French Oscars, the Cesars, that ended in walkouts and recrimination in Paris early Saturday.
The entire French academy had been forced to resign earlier this month amid fury that the veteran -- wanted in the US for the statutory rape of a 13-year-old girl in 1977 -- had topped the list of nominations.
Protesters chanting "Lock up Polanski!" tried to storm the theatre where the ceremony was being held before being pushed back by police firing tear gas.
And France's Culture Minister Franck Riester had warned that giving the maker of "Rosemary's Baby" a Cesar would be "symbolically bad given the stance we must take against sexual and sexist violence".
Trump accuses Democrats of coronavirus ‘hoax’ as confirmed cases in US gather pace
President Donald Trump accused Democrats of a new “hoax” over criticism of his handling of the coronavirus threat, as US health officials reported Friday a fourth case of novel coronavirus of unknown origin, indicating the disease was spreading in the country.
The latest case is a boy under 18 in Washington State who tested "presumptive positive" and is currently in home isolation in Snohomish County. The high school he attends will be shut until March 3 while it is deep cleaned, the Washington State Department of Health said.
A positive test is treated as "presumptive" until the results have been confirmed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Regulators move to fine telecoms for selling location data
US regulators moved to impose fines Friday against the nation's four major wireless carriers for selling location data of customers without their consent.
The Federal Communications Commission proposed fining T-Mobile more than $91 million; AT&T some $57 million; Verizon $48 million, and Sprint $12 million.
The wireless firms were accused of having disclosed mobile network user location data to a third party without authorization from customers, the FCC said.
The FCC began an investigation after a report that a sheriff in Missouri used a "location-finding service" operated by a prison communications services company called Securus to track whereabouts of people including a judge and law enforcement officers.
