Victorina Morales, the unauthorized Guatemalan housekeeper living in the United States, says she doesn't regret telling her story about abuses she faced at one of Donald Trump's New Jersey golf clubs, the AP's Claudia Torrens and Bernard Condon report.

Details: Morales could face deportation for revealing her immigration status, but said migrants "need to come out and defend ourselves" while on the verge of tears.
