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