Morales' journey from cultivating corn in rural Guatemala to fluffing pillows at an exclusive golf resort took her from the southwest border, where she said she crossed illegally in 1999, to the horse country of New Jersey, where she was hired at the Trump property in 2013 with documents she said were phony.

The Times reported on Thursday that Victorina Morales and Sandra Diaz cleaned at Trump's golf resort Bedminster, New Jersey, for years despite not having proper documentation.

"An employee of the golf course drives her and a group of others to work every day, she says, because it is known that they can not legally obtain driver's licenses".

The New York Times first wrote about the two women, noting that there is no evidence that the Trump Organization knew they did not have legal documents.

The praise for Trump undermines Morales's suggestion that she revealed her status in a high-minded protest of Trump's 2016 mandate to curb illegal immigration.

The Washington Post said in 2015 that it had interviewed workers during the construction of Trump International Hotel in Washington who said they had entered the country illegally. She says she is applying for asylum and is exploring a lawsuit claiming workplace abuse and discrimination. Although Diaz now has legal residency in the US, she claims there were "many people without papers" working at the resort.

"We have tens of thousands of employees across our properties and have very strict hiring practices", said a Trump Organization spokesperson in a statement sent to AFP.

"The president has been half-serious about stopping illegal immigration by not taking away the jobs magnet", said Roy Beck, president of NumbersUSA, a group pushing to reduce immigration.

Morales and Diaz approached The New York Times through their New Jersey lawyer, Anibal Romero, who is representing them on immigration matters. She also claimed to the newspaper that a housekeeping supervisor at Bedminster made insulting comments about her intelligence and undocumented status. "We call upon New Jersey's law enforcement community and federal authorities to investigate these allegations immediately and to help protect these courageous women and others who may now come forward", Romero added.

Since his election, Trump has pushed for passage of his "Four Pillars" immigration reforms, which would curb legal and illegal immigration, so pushing up wages for hotel maids and every other blue-collar person.

Ms. Morales said she will never forget the day Mr. Trump pulled up to the pro shop in his cart as she was washing its large, arched windows.

She says she washed and ironed Trump's white boxers, golf shirts, and khakis. She said she did not expect to return to work.
