A group of Democratic lawmakers are urging the FBI to investigate the hiring of undocumented immigrants from the Trump Organization on the company's golf courses.

"We are writing to request a thorough federal inquiry into troubling allegations by former Trump Organization employees who demonstrate possible violations of civil and criminal law by the Trump National Golf Club in Westchester County. in New York, and in Bedminster, New Jersey "Raúl Grijalva (D-Ariz.) wrote in a letter to the director of the FBI, Christopher Wray.

Grijalva notes in the letter "that the number of immigrants claiming to have been illegally employed by the Trump organization has risen to over 20 people".

"This raises serious issues of criminal activity and numerous violations of employment laws … including charges of conspiracy, obtaining forged documents and forced and forced labor," he said. he said, before noting that the Trump organization had "fired these hard-working employees" for "a border wall that supposedly would keep undocumented immigrants".

Several immigrants have been fired from Trump's properties since information was released in December about undocumented migrants working at the Trump Club in Bedminster, New Jersey.

The Trump Organization maintained that executives did not know that undocumented workers were on the payroll. But several workers claimed that their officials knew about their status and even helped them to falsify their documents.

CNN reported last month that many workers had met with lawmakers to urge them to open an investigation into the Trump organization. Workers also sought their help if they needed protection from Immigration and Customs (ICE).

Several Democrats have warned the administration against the treatment of immigrants without legal status alleging abuse of Trump's property.

The new House Democrats' letter also calls for "victims of alleged criminal and civil violations to be protected as witnesses and important victims".

Sen. Bob Menendez (D) last week asked the FBI and the US Department of Homeland Security to open an investigation into the case.
