Following a New York Times report revealing an undocumented immigrant staffed President Donald Trump's New Jersey golf club for more than five years, a member of his re-election advisory council says he's not to blame.
Victorina Morales, a Guatemalan immigrant, says in a bombshell interview that she cleaned Trump's toilet and dusted his golf trophies at the Bedminster club frequently visited by the president. She was hired at Trump's golf club in 2013 with phony documents. Sandra Diaz, a 46-year-old woman from Costa Rica, also told the Times that she was employed as an undocumented immigrant at the club between 2010 and 2013.
In a statement, the Trump Organization said, "We have tens of thousands of employees across our properties and have very strict hiring practices". "If an employee submitted false documentation in an attempt to circumvent the law, they will be terminated immediately".
Their lawyer provided CBS News with Morales' 2017 W-2 form, which lists her employer as Lamington Farm Club, the corporate name of Mr. Trump's golf course.
She says she washed and ironed Trump's white boxers, golf shirts, and khakis.
Soon after Trump launched his run for the presidency, several illegal workers had shifts axed.
"Ms. Morales has had an unusual window into one of the president's favorite retreats", The Times continues.

A national day of mourning has been declared for today to honor the life of the 41st president of the United States, George H.W. A steady stream of visits, both prominent figures and ordinary Americans, have been pouring through the Rotunda of the U.S.
"We are exhausted of the abuse, the insults, the way he talks about us when he knows that we are here helping him make money", she told the Times. "We sweat it out to attend to his every need and have to put up with his humiliation".
Morales said she has been hurt by Trump's public comments since he became president, including equating Latin American immigrants with violent criminals.
In other respects, the women described some of the perks of employment, even earning cash tips from Trump.
His anti-immigration views are also not limited to the United States; Trump has criticized European nations for allowing refugees and migrants to resettle there, saying the newcomers "change the fabric" of the West for the worse. She says she is applying for asylum and is exploring a lawsuit claiming workplace abuse and discrimination.
"I ask myself, is it possible that this señor thinks we have papers?"
"My clients are willing to cooperate with federal authorities and with state authorities so they can provide details", Romero said. They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with [them]. "He knows we don't speak English", Morales said.
