Congressman Sires Statement on Trump Golf Course Reliance on Undocumented Workers

Feb 5, 2019
Press Release

(Washington, D.C.) – Today, Congressman Sires issued the following statement after the announcement of undocumented workers being terminated at several Trump National Golf Club locations:

“President Trump may log onto Twitter and denounce the value of immigrant communities, but today’s reports prove that his wealth was built on the backs of undocumented workers. Terminating at least 18 employees today, and throwing their lives into chaos, is a cruel way to cover up the hypocrisy of flaunting the E-Verify system that is now his political crutch. Intelligent, compassionate immigration reform is desperately needed for America. Prejudice and falsehoods must fall to the wayside, and we must grapple with the actual realities of immigration in our country.”
