At least 18 unauthorized immigrant workers at five golf courses in New York and New Jersey that are operated by President Trump’s company were fired in the past two months, per the Washington Post.

Details: The publication says Eric Trump, executive vice president of the Trump Organization, confirmed the dismissals on Monday. This comes amid growing scrutiny and media exposés over the past year that suggested Trump's properties have at times turned a blind eye to the immigration status of its workers despite to president's hard-line immigration stance.
