A new Washington Post investigation reveals that the man whom Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump entrusted to care for their hunting retreat in New York state is an undocumented immigrant who now fears he will be deported.
According to the Post, undocumented Mexican immigrant Juan Quintero worked two separate jobs for the Trump family: As the greenskeeper at the Trump National Golf Club Hudson Valley and as a contractor at the Trump sons’ 171-acre hunting retreat.
Quintero was fired from both jobs earlier this year after reports revealed that multiple Trump establishments relied on undocumented labor at assorted hotels and golf clubs.
In an interview with the Post, Quintero said he felt used by the family who had relied on his work for years.
“All of the years you give them, and they just let you go,” he said. “They do not say, ‘Let’s do something, let’s try to help you.’ They simply said, ‘Your documents are not valid,’ and that is it.”
Although Quintero never revealed his status as an undocumented immigrant to the Trump family, he was allowed for stay on his job at the hunting retreat more than a year after he failed to provide its owners with a valid Social Security number.
