Lemon noted the Trump Organization responded to the allegations with a statement highlighting its "very strict hiring practices" and vow to fire any employee who submitted false documentation.

Victorina Morales, 45, has worked for more than five years as a house keeper at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey - and said she is one of multiple club employees who are in the country illegally, The New York Times reported this week.

Morales says lower-level managers at the golf club helped her circumvent Trump's enforcement rules.

Morales said she was scheduled to report to work Friday but did not plan to go, and said she made the decision to come forward because of mistreatment by her direct supervisor at the golf resort, including what she described as "physical abuse" on three occasions. The Times subsequently reported that two other immigrants who worked at the club came forward Friday to say that they lived illegally in the US when they hired.
