Immigration Lawyer Anibal Romero discusses new claims against Trump

Immigration Attorney

In a recent interview with FiOS1 News, citizenship attorney, Anibal Romero, was asked about new claims in a Washington Post article that the Trump Organization allegedly stole wages from former undocumented workers.

According to Romero, who represents 38 former undocumented Trump employees who worked at Trump Golf Properties in New York and New Jersey, the Trump Organization purposefully took advantage of these workers who were not only illegally hired, but were also denied benefits and were forced to work after hours without compensation.

“This was probably part of the strategy, hire undocumented immigrants, so that not only they can pay them less money, but they can make them work over time and not have to pay them certain benefits required by state law.”

The President, who often attacked illegal immigrants while campaigning for office, has faced a backlash over his company firing these undocumented workers in January. The Trump administration denies any wrongdoing, calling the allegations “total nonsense” and “nothing more than unsubstantiated allegations from illegal immigrants who unlawfully submitted fake identification in an effort to obtain employment.”

As an experienced immigration attorney,Romero believes his clients.

“I don’t believe they’re all making this story up. This makes absolutely no sense. What we’re talking about, what my clients say, are hundreds of people who have worked for the Trump Organization over the years.”

Former Trump employee is fighting to stay in this country with help from U.S. immigration attorney Anibal Romero.

President Trump faces continual scrutiny over his organization employing undocumented immigrants and then firing these people when this issue came to light. Now, many former employees are facing deportation even though they’ve worked in the United States for the President’s companies for years. Immigration lawyerAnibal Romero is committed to protecting these people from deportation.

In a recent Washington Post article, Juan Quintero who had not one but two jobs working for the Trump family. He was a greenskeeper at the Trump National Golf Club Hudson Valley in Hopewell Junction, N.Y., and also a contractor at the 171-acre hunting retreat called Leather Hill Preserve. After 18 years of employment, Quintero was let go along with many other undocumented workers after it was revealed that the Trump organization has been using illegal labor for years.

Although Quintero never disclosed his immigration status, he never provided documents either. In fact, in 2016 when he was offered the job at the private weekend playground for President Trump’s sons, Quintero says he was never asked about his immigration status. And although he’s worked directly with Eric Trump, and has records of his interactions with the President’s son, it was only after it was revealed that the Trump organization was employing undocumented workers that Quintero lost his jobs.

Since being let go, Quintero fears being deported, and sought help from U.S. immigration attorney Anibal Romero. He is now among several clients who have been interviewed by the New York State Attorney General’s Office in recent weeks.

“Romero said his clients are cooperating with authorities and should be shielded from deportation. “They are material witnesses to federal and state crimes, and any attempt to remove them from the United States should be considered obstruction of justice,” he said.”

Romero also points out that, while Quintero was technically employed as a contractor, he was in effect an employee. His client worked a regular schedule and was supplied with everything he needed to do his job – unlike contractors who use their own tools.

“You can put many things on paper, but if the reality of the facts are not a reflection of what actually happens, then that’s what matters in court,” he said.

With the help of his deportation attorney, Quintero hopes to stay in the United States with his wife and four U.S.-born sons. Will he get to see his day in court? Unfortunately, only time will tell.

Trump Golf Clubs, The FBI Investigation, and U.S. Immigration Attorney Anibal Romero.

Throughout the Trump presidency, there have been allegations that the Trump Organization has a history of hiring undocumented workers despite the President’s harsh words against illegal immigrants. Now, ten Democratic members of Congress are requesting a formal, federal investigation into what happened at the Trump National Golf Club in Westchester County, New York, and Bedminster, New Jersey.

According to CNN, several former Trump employees and undocumented workers claim their managers knew their legal status and helped them falsify documents – a claim the Trump Organization denies. Other allegations include conspiracy charges and forced and coerced labor.

In their request, lawmakers asked that victims of these alleged criminal and civil violations be protected as material witnesses and that deporting any of these individuals would be an obstruction of justice.

Immigration attorney Anibal Romero, who represents 25 workers who were undocumented during their employment at Trump’s golf clubs, welcomes the investigation.

“Many of the workers came in on valid visitors’ visas and had no problem getting a job there because management decided it was convenient for them to hire cheap labor,” Romero said.

Whether the FBI will actually investigate these allegations is up in the air, but if they do they can count on the best immigration lawyerslike Anibal Romero fiercely defending their clients throughout the process.

Trump is expanding his screening process while deportation lawyer Anibal protects former undocumented workers.

After allegations that the Trump Organization has hired illegal immigrants to work at its properties for years, the President’s company now plans to use E-Verify, a federal program to check the eligibility of a new hire to work in the United States. This comes after countless allegations of the organization employing undocumented workers throughout the years despite claims from the President during the 2016 election that his companies already used this tool. According to the Washington Post, this new promise highlights the disconnect between Trump’s comments on illegal immigrants and his own hiring practices.

Since taking office, about half of the wintertime staff at the Trump National Golf Club in Westchester County, all undocumented workers, were fired from their positions. Many of these workers were employed for several years, if not decades, and there have been claims that supervisors provided them falsified documents. Several Democratic lawmakers have urged the FBI to launch a formal investigation into these allegations and to protect these undocumented workers.

Rep. Tom Malinowski (D., New Jersey) has called these workers “material witnesses,” and immigration attorney, Anibal Romero agrees. In fact, while talking to the Washington Post, Romero said the Trump Organization may have committed immigration, tax, Social Security and ERISA fraud and that “any attempt” to deport the workers “could be considered obstruction of justice.”

“We’re looking for protection,” he said, adding “any undocumented immigrant who has worked for Donald Trump and his properties could be considered a material witness in a federal case against the organization for knowingly hiring undocumented immigrants.”

While an investigation has yet to be announced, undocumented workers can count on asylum attorneys to keep fighting for their rights and their freedom.

Former Trump employee, represented by citizenship lawyer Anibal Romero, says she was purposefully kept off the Secret Service list.

A former employee at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J., claims that her supervisors kept her off of the Secret Service’s list because she is undocumented.

Emma Torres is an immigrant from Ecuador, and she began working at the club in 2015. She used a fake Social Security number to get the job and moved from housekeeper to kitchen staff. During the Trump presidential campaign in 2016, the Secret Service requested a list of employees with their names, dates of birth, and social security number. Knowing she didn’t have that information, Torres went to Human Resources and asked to have her name removed. She says that when she told them it was because she was undocumented, the supervisor crossed her name, and several others, off of the list.

Another undocumented worker, Victorina Morales, says she had a similar experience. When she initially applied for the job as housekeeper in 2013 at this same club, Morales says she told the supervisor she didn’t have papers but was assured that it didn’t matter. Then, while working during the trump campaign, Morales says she was given a pin to wear by the Secret Service to access certain areas during Trump’s visits. When she was asked to sign for the pin, she told her supervisor she didn’t know how to write. These pins indicate that someone has been screened and is authorized to enter secure areas. Morales is unsure if she was ever screened because she assumed her supervisor handled the details.

Representing both of these former Trump employees, and several others, is immigration attorney Anibal Romero. When asked by the Washington Post to verify his clients’ accounts, he was able to turn over tax and payroll documentation relating to their employment.

As more and more former Trump employees who are also undocumented workers tell their stories, top immigration lawyers will be there to defend their rights and ensure that any missteps are addressed.

An immigration attorney’s client hides in a church rather than face deportation.

It seems like every day we’re hearing devastating stories of undocumented workers who came to the United States seeking refuge but are instead facing deportation. Fortunately, green card attorney, Anibal Romero, is doing everything he can to help protect their rights.

In this recent and disheartening case, Rosa Gutierrez Lopez, single mother of three U.S.-born children, was told she had to leave the country despite her immigration attorneyAnibal Romero petitioning the court for a stay of her deportation order.

Lopez came to the United States in 2005, and couldn’t bear to leave her three children, especially her youngest who has Down syndrome. She also couldn’t fathom taking her children back to her home country of El Salvador, which lacks the special-needs resources her son requires. So, although she had already purchased her plane ticket, she sought sanctuary at Cedar Lane Unitarian Universalist Church in Bethesda.

Her visa attorneyfiled a motion to stay her deportation months ago and is working hard to reopen her case, specifically because Lopez had a family member killed in El Salvador and fears she will be a target is she returns. According to Romero:

“We believe we have a good case, but we are in limbo,” Romero said. “She can’t fight her case in El Salvador, and we don’t control what happens in the courts here.”

As her deportation lawyercontinues to fight for his client, Lopez spends her days cleaning and cooking at the church. To read her full story, click here.
