This news comes as Trump's government shutdown enters its second week because the President insists the United States needs more walls on its southern border.
This is not the first time Trump has been caught hiring undocumented workers. His personal housekeeper was recently revealed to be an illegal immigrant and, of course, Trump Tower was built on land cleared by illegal aliens from Poland whom Trump hired.
Here's a solution: if employers like Trump didn't routinely hire illegal immigrants, then people wouldn't be so willing to cross the border. It's time to prosecute criminally employers who knowingly hire undocumented workers and, in particular, when they help compound that illegality by supplying fraudulent documents.
Now some might say Trump couldn't possibly know this was happening. But we have no way of knowing that, particularly given he's had problems like this before.
Nevertheless, management is ultimately responsible for what happens at a company. Management sets the tone and enforces policies. If Trump had adopted a no-tolerance approach to employee documentation -- which anyone with some common sense in political office would have done -- then this would never have happened. The buck stops with him.
Once again, Trump stumbles into the festering cesspool of hypocrisy. But don't expect him to admit any wrongdoing.
