Donald Trump has spent the last several decades of his public life ranting and raving about illegal immigration. It has been a major issue of his presidency, notwithstanding that he often outright lies about the scope of the matter.

Yesterday, the New York Times broke the story (link here) that Trump's personal housekeeper at his New Jersey golf resort, where he frequently travels from the White House, is an illegal immigrant from Guatemala.

According to the woman in question, she is not the only illegal immigrant whom Trump employs at that facility.

This is not the first time that Trump has been busted for hiring illegal immigrants. He hired a number of illegal immigrants from Poland to demolish an existing building so he could build his Trump Tower in Manhattan (details here), workers whom he ultimately tried to stiff on payment.

And, of course, Trump's current wife Melania worked illegally a number of times in the United States when she was visiting on a tourist visa (details here).

With this latest revelation, could Trump possibly be any more hypocritical on the issue of illegal immigration than he already is?
