We know a little more today about what’s going to happen to Victorina Morales, the undocumented worker in one of President Trump’s resorts, who came forward in yesterday’s New York Times to suggest the resort knows she’s undocumented while the president speaks ill of such people.
“We are tired of the abuse, the insults, the way he talks about us when he knows that we are here helping him make money,” she said in the article.
She’s not going back to the resort. She knows she’ll be fired, the Times says today, after the Trump resort issued a statement saying that’s exactly what will happen.
“The truth is I’m sad, I feel bad,” she said. “Many people are pointing their finger at me. But I don’t regret what I did.”
She’s asked for asylum. She has a hearing in 10 days although her attorney says he’ll ask it be postponed.
“Experts, psychologists will be required for the case. She is now a public figure in the United States. That puts her more at risk of returning to Guatemala than before,” he said.
In the meantime, she has another job cleaning offices at night.
